Stegosaurus - Dinosaurs images

The name derived from an Ancient Greek compound meaning "roofed lizard". Scientists have dubbed it so for its titanic size.

Dinosaur Stegosaur lived during the Late Jurassic period, some 155 to 150 million years ago. In 2006, their fossilized remains were found in Portugal, showing that these prehistoric animals were present on the territory of today's Europe as well.
They were large animals at up to 9 m in length, about 4 m high, with a recognizable spiked tail. Body of this dinosaur was covered with two rows of triangular plates, rising vertically along the rounded back.

The plates were connected to the bloodstream, making it possible for the stegosaur to change their color in order to intimidate predators. And the sharp spikes on its tail could inflict
deadly blows to such predators. Stegosaurs were plant eaters.
