Stegosaur Dinosaurs



Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Sauropsida
  Superorder Dinosauria
  Order Ornithischia
  Suborder Thyreophora
  Infraorder Stegosauria
The Stegosauria (meaning "roof lizards") dinosaurs were a infraorder of the the Ornithischian dinosaurs. Together with the Ankylosaurs, Stegosaurs form the Thyreophora ("shield bearers") suborder of Ornithischia. Dinosaurs in the Stegosauria infraorder include Stegosaurus (of course!), as well as, among others, Gigantspinosaurus, Kentrosaurus, and Tuojiangosaurus.

Stegosaurs first appeared during the middle Jurassic period, and survived until the early Cretaceous period. They had all died long before the time that the other remaining non-avian dinosaurs became extinct at the end of the Cretaceous period.

Dinosaur Classification

All Stegosaurs were herbivores (plant-eaters). They were quadrupedal (walking on four legs), with hoof-like toes on all four legs, although it is thought that some species may have been able to rear-up on their hind legs to eater higher-placed foliage. The front limbs of Stegosaurs were shorter than their hind limbs, and as a result they are thought to have been slow-moving.

Stegosaurs, or armored dinosaurs, are a genus of dinosaurs from the late Jurassic period known for their spiked tails and triangular plates on their backs. In this book, various species of stegosaurs are highlighted, including important fossil discoveries and how they have helped scientists learn more about how stegosaurs lived. The glossary helps young readers learn terms that paleontologists use to classify dinosaurs, while fact boxes, timelines, and dinosaur profiles provide additional context and engagement.

The Adventures of Dinosaur Dog # 5 - "Great Snoring Stegosaurs", by Scott E. Sutton
This is the long awaited 5th story in this popular adventure series about a boy, Benjamin (Banjo) Montgomery, and his dog, Dino, who has a doggy door that has become a time tunnel back to the age of dinosaurs.
Benjamin has formed a science team with his best friend Lee, his cousin Samantha and Dino to explore all the different times and dinosaurs that the tunnel takes them to.
And with the help of some "friends" back in time they just might survive being trampled, clawed or eaten by real dinosaurs. You see, these "friends" are the ones causing the time tunnel to exist and these "friends" are actually... ALIEN LIBRARIANS.
In this story the science team goes back in time over 145 million years ago to study Stegosaurs when they are attacked by a group of new dinosaurs that they have never seen before in any dinosaur book. Benjamin calls them "Birdosaurs" while Benjamen's best friend, Lee, calls them "evil psycho turkeys with teeth that can kill you."
In the middle of the attack Dino the dog disappears ... Is he just lost or ... worse.
