Stegosaurus by CollectA
For the longest time the Stegosaurus has been my favourite dinosaur. He's my absolute favourite. They were herding herbivores - like a big scaled dino-cow. I saw a video many moons ago, where they showed a simulation of the Stegosaurus dancing with it's back plants fanning up and down and its tail swooshing side to side. And that ladies and gentlemen was when I first fell in love with the mighty Stegosaurus.
CollectA design beautiful and realistic figurines that inspire children's imaginations and enrich their natural play drive.
This life-like figurine measures 16cm x 8.5 cm
A few fun stegosaurus facts:
- The name Stegosaurus means 'roof lizard'! How trippy is that?
- The Stegosaurus is the most famous dinosaur from a group of dinosaurs known as Stegosauria. They were all herbivores and featured rows of unique bones that developed into plates and spines along their back and tail.
The Stegosaurus was alive around 150 million years ago in the Upper Jurassic Period.Although the Stegosaurus body was large, the size of their brain was only around the size of a dog’s. Now this just makes me imagine a bunch of stegosauruses frolicking in the fields chasing butterflies.
