  Family Stegosauridae
  Genus Kentrosaurus
Kentrosaurus was a slow-moving herbivore (plant-eater) that lived in Africa during the late Jurassic period, about 156 to 150 million years ago.

It was about 16 feet (4.9 meters) long, and weighed around 2 tons.

Kentrosaurus may have been slow-moving, but it was well protected from predators by its armor. Its back was covered with a double row of triangular bony plates on each side of the backbone. At the rear, the plates were then replaced with pairs of sharp spikes, about 2 feet (60 centimeters) long, that went from the lower back down to the tip of the tail. There was also a pair on extra long spikes on the hips.

Kentrosaurus was one of the Fossils brought back from the 1909-1912 German expedition to East Africa. Edwin Henning, who was one of the paleontologists on this expedition, published the first full description of Kentosaurus in 1915. A nearly complete skeleton of Kentrosaurus once stood in the Humboldt Museum in the University of Berlin, however, unfortunately, this was lost as a result of bombing during World War II.

Although it usually believed that Kentrosaurus died out millions of years ago, there are some cryptozoologists (people who search for rumored or mythical animals whose existence is uncertain) have suggested that "Mbielu-Mbielu-Mbielu", an animal claimed to be known to villagers in the Northern part of the Republic of Congo, might just be a living Kentrosaurus. However, as yet, there does not seem to be any definitive proof of this. For more information see Living Dinosaurs?

  • Durable toy dinosaur figures - pack of 3 pieces
  • Suitable for 3 years +
Product Description:
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.Kentrosaurus a slow-moving herbivore (plant-eater) that lived in Africa during the late Jurassic period, about 156 to 150 million years ago.

Ankylosaurs first appeared during the early Jurassic period, and survived until the end of the Cretaceous period, about 65 million years ago, when all the remaining non-avian dinosaurs became extinct.
All Ankylosaurs were herbivores (plant-eaters), quadrupedal (walking on four legs), and protected by armor. Although the amount of armor did differ between species.

These toys measures approximately 14cm from nose to tail and are approximately 9cm tall.

  • With booklet!
  • Highly detailed and scientifically accurate
Product Description:
All the Schweich figures are lovingly hand-painted with detailed modelling and allow kids to learn while they play. The Kentrosaurus was a peaceful herbivore, but it was far from defenseless. The sharp spikes on its neck and back were capable of inflicting serious injuries on predators. But most dangerous of all were the long spikes on its tail. If it had to defend itself, it lashed its tail around like a giant Club.
