The name Stegosaurus translates from ancient Greek as "roofed lizard", in reference to the bony growths in the form of jagged crests or plates along its neck, spine, and tail, - resembling the roof of a house.

Stegosaurus dinosaur lived in the Late Jurassic Period, some 150 million years ago. It was around 9 m long and 4 m high. The rows of triangular bony plates covering its whole body were connected to the bloodstream, making it possible for this prehistoric animal to change its color, in order to intimidate a predator. Stegosaurus had sharp tail-spikes which could inflict deadly stings to all attacking predators.
