The stegosaurus had vertically arranged triangular plates, called “scutes” on its back.
An adult weighed between 5 and 7 tons, and could be up to 29 feet long. Despite being so big, it had a tiny head and its brain was about the size of a big dogs’ :o !
The herbivorous stegosaurus had shorter fore limbs than hind limbs and moved slowly, eating shrubs and other low lying plants, and even some rocks!
