150 million years ago, the Jurassic period was in full swing, with Stegosaurus living their best lives 90 million years before T. rex. These gentle giants stretched out to a whopping length of 30-feet and weighed over 2 tons. Can you imagine being that big? When paleontologists first discovered stegosaurus in the 1870s, it was like a light bulb went off - revolutionizing our understanding of prehistoric reptiles and sparking a global obsession with dinosaurs. Fun fact: Stegosaurus was originally known as "roofed lizard" because scientists thought its plates were flat like tiles. We now know that these diamond-shaped plates were actually arranged in two rows that ran along its neck, back, and tail. And while these plates were great for show and tell, they didn't really serve a practical purpose. But don't be fooled, stegosaurus had some serious defense tactics too - those four sharp spikes on its tail were no joke.
