Name's meaning: "roofed lizard"
A full grown Stegosaurus measured about about 30 feet long, about 9 feet tall, and weighed about 4-6 tons (weight estimates vary greatly for dinosaurs).
It was about the size of an elephant. Stegosaurus had plates on it's back that were not attached to it's bones. Since it's plates were not attached to it's bones, we don't know which direction they pointed. It had four legs, and it's back legs were twice as long as it's front legs. It had spikes on it's tail, which it probably used as a weapon.
Young Earth Age:

Old Earth Age:
According to old earth scientists, Stegasaurus lived in the late Jurrasic Period, about 150 million years ago.
It was a herbivore (plant eating dinosaur).
Stegosaurus fossils have been found all over the world including Utah, Wyoming, Colorado in the United States. Around the world they have been found in India, China, Europe, and Africa.
