Conditions of Use
Dinosaurs are awesome! My favorite was and is the Stegosaurus. It had that row of spines from its head all the way down to its tail. The plates were bigger in the middle of its body than near the head or tail. I always wondered why the Stegosaurus’ head was so small. It looked kind of awkward next to its huge, bulky, body. its tail had two spines on each side so the Stegosaurus could wave it around and pierce any dinosaurs that annoy it or get in the way.its legs are small, short, and thick. It isn’t a carnivore (which is a meat eater), so it doesn’t need the tall and strong legs like the Tyrannosaurus Rex does. The Tyrannosaurus Rex uses his long legs to chase and eat other dinosaurs. The Stegosaurus just stands around in the shade of a tree munching leaves. I guess they also get in fights with other carnivores that want to eat them. They don’t really have any other choice then get eaten, do they? Of course, they can’t flee with such short, stubby, legs.It has four feet, which I think might be a disadvantage next to the Tyrannosaurus’ strong two legs because the Tyrannosaurus only has to move its two legs to go forward. The Stegosaurus has to move all four. On the other hand, horses have four legs and they can run quite fast if they want to. But the Stegosaurus’ legs aren’t tall and fast like horses’ legs...
I thought it was a pity when the asteroid fell and the killed all the plants, which killed all the plant-eating dinosaurs, which killed all the meat-eating dinosaurs. At least I think so. So the Dinosaur Age died quickly.
About sixteen billion or something years later...
“What the heck?!”some scientist comes along and scrapes dirt and dust off fossils off dinosaur fossils hidden deep under the ground.Scientists explored underground a bit more and put together the first dinosaur fossil. Stegosaurus fossil are found in the Upper Jurassic Rocks of Colorado and Wyoming.
