For those in or from Colorado, happy Colorado Day!

In 1982, the Stegosaurus became the official state fossil of Colorado in honour of the fact that it is where the very first Stegosaurus fossil was found by Othniel Charles Marsh during the Bone Wars in 1876.

Stegosaurus was a large plant-eating dinosaur that lived 150 MYA. It is one of the most well-recognized dinosaurs due to the distinctive bony plates that form a defensive ridge along the Stegosaurus’ back and tail. It also has powerful defensive spikes on its tail, which are called thagomizers (after a Far Side comic).

Stegosaurus means roofed lizard as the back plates were originally thought to be part of a shell, much like a turtle. While we now know that they are back plates, it is not clear what the purpose of the plates actually was. Thoughts range from regulating body temperature, as display, changing colour to warn predators or part of a mating ritual.

Stegosaurus had one of the smallest brains of all dinosaurs, relative to body size. It weighed up to 10 tonnes, but had a brain the size of a walnut. One theory is that they had a second - larger - brain in their hindquarters. This theory has since been debunked - the second „brain cavity“ is now thought to have held glycogen. Some modern day birds also have a glycogen cavity.

Despite this, Stegosaurus were incredibly successful: unlike most dinosaurs, Stegosaurus fossils have been found in the US; Europe, Africa and Asia.

Now the fossils of Stegosaurus can be seen at various museums. Sophie, the most complete Stegosaurus fossil, can be viewed at the Natural History Museum in London. The Denver Museum of Nature & Science also displays a stegosaurus fossil skeleton that was discovered by Canon City High School students and teacher.

Scientific Name: Kentrosaurus
Meaning: Sharp point lizard
Time Period: Late Jurassic

Geographic Range: Tanzania
Facts: Kentrosaurus was once thought to be more primitive than its more-famous relative, Stegosaurus, but recent research has shown it was actually more derived. Unlike Stegosaurus, it also sported more “spikes” rather than plates.

Scientific Name: Stegosaurus
Meaning: Roofed lizard
Time Period: Late Jurassic

Geographic Range: North America (Western U.S.A.)
Facts: Stegosaurus is undoubtedly one of the most famous dinosaurs known by the public. Characterized by its plated back and tail spikes (called thagomizers), Stegosaurus is definitely a dinosaur that one can easily identify. This herbivore used its tail for defense, whereas the plates on their backs were probably both for display and defense.
