Stegosaurus is a dinosaur that lived around 155 million years ago—during the Jurassic Period—in the Western portion of North America and parts of Europe.

This dinosaur was first discovered in 1877 by Othniel Charles Marsh.

It has double row of back plates that end with a double pair of spikes on this dinosaur’s tail.

Because this dinosaur had armored plates that seemed shingled, it was given the name Stegosaurus, which means “roofed lizard”.

Stegosaurus had the brain of a Walnut.

An interesting fact to note is that of all of the dinosaurs, Stegosaurus had one of the smallest brains.

It weighs about 5 tons and it's brain weighs 3 ounces.

This dinosaur’s bite was weaker than a human’s bite.

It was an herbivorous.

It swallowed rocks to aid in digesting plant matter. It is believed that this dinosaur was very simple and slow moving.
