The Age of the Dinosaurs – The Stegosaurus

The Age of the Dinosaurs – The Stegosaurus

The Allosaurus and the Stegosaurus were two of the giant stars of the Late Jurassic Period around 160 million years ago. Allosaurus was a fast and deadly predator; Stegosaurus a herbivore, but a hard to catch prey. Fights between the two species, like you know them from several entertaining movies, seem to have actually occurred – scientists found an Allosaurus vertebra with a hole from one of the Stegosaurus tail spikes. Both dinosaurs mainly lived at the same time in North America.
