The Stegosaurus is among the most famous dinosaurs from the dino species known as Stegosaurids. They were all herbivores and had double rows of plates on their back (that reminds of the GODZILLA, no?) and an extremely sharp needle like, spiked tail. Eg. Tuojiangosaurus and Kentrosaurus.
The Stegosaurus was alive in the late Jurassic Period (around 150 million years ago). It had a snout that was not as large, and had a brain that was the size of an egg🥚, it was apparently not very clever and to its disadvantage it had poor eyesight too. This made it susceptible to it predators such as Allosaurus but it had a well developed sense of battle to use its tail whenever in danger. -Aren’t you interested to know how scientists detected this? Well, they did by the fact that Allosaurus bones have been found that bore stegosaurus tail marks. Can you believe that?
Stegosaurus was a social animal that means that it moved in herds. This helped them from becoming Allosaurus meal, although the fact that they only managed to walk a little faster than we humans do, there was zero chance that they could have outrun their attackers.
If an Allosaurus ever got stuck inside a herd of Stegosauruses, it wouldn’t have gotten out without having some serious bone fractures, and injuries that could lead to death too. And we thought life of a predator is easy, eh.
