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.
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 first appeared during the middle Jurassic, about 176 million years ago, and survived until the early Cretaceous period, about 100 million years ago
