Best Dinosaur toys - Stegosaurus (Schleich)!

With its interesting, prominent features, the Stegosaurus was a herbivore with plates on its back, a spiked tail, small head and long legs. With seventeen plates and spikes measuring about 30 centimetres in length, this dinosaur was always ready to defend itself. Measuring ten metres in length, the Stegosaurus had a brain no bigger than a walnut. Its hind legs were twice as long as its front ones.

This herbivore armed with pencil-like teeth spent most of its time grazing and swallowing its food without chewing. Despite its small head and even smaller brain, this was one of the largest land animals ever existing. With a length of 25 metres and hip height of more than three metres, this dinosaur weighed almost forty tonnes.
