The gigantic and mysterious Stegosaurus was one of the largest dinosaurs ever discovered at the size of a city bus!! Don’t be intimidated by his huge structure though, Stegosaurus or “roofed lizard” was an herbivore dining mostly on vegetation and fruits. In fact, Stego had such a short neck, that he couldn’t even reach up into the trees to get his food. Instead Stego used his powerful and flexible tail, swinging it into fruit trees and devouring the fallen treats. This lifelike Silver Statue captures every detail of the ancient dino from his small head, long hind legs, and bony scutes running down his spine in two separate layers. In fact, Stego’s plates raise a huge debate between Archaeologists. Were they used for heat distribution throughout his body? Were they a mating feature making him more attractive to females? Were they used for self-defense? Any way you slice it, the Stegosaurus is one popular dino!

Stegosaurus remains were first identified during the "Bone Wars" by Othniel Charles Marsh. The first known skeletons were fragmentary and the bones were scattered, and it would be many years before the true appearance of these animals, including their posture and plate arrangement, became well understood. The name Stegosaurus means "covered lizard", in reference to its bony plates. Despite its popularity in books and film, mounted skeletons of Stegosaurus did not become a staple of major natural history museums until the mid-20th century, and many museums have had to assemble composite displays from several different specimens due to a lack of complete skeletons. As the archetypal thyreophoran, Stegosaurus is one of the best-known dinosaurs, and has been featured in film, postal stamps, and many other types of media.
