Kentrosaurus

About Kentrosaurus

Living around 150 million years ago in Africa, Kentrosaurus is often considered to have been the close cousin of Stegosaurus. Like Stegosaurus, Kentrosaurus had plates attached to its back. However, unlike Stegosaurus, these plates gradually became narrower as they ran down its body until they were more like spikes. Like other members of the Stegosauridae, or plated dinosaur group, Kentrosaurus had a very small brain.
