Tuojiangosaurus

About Tuojiangosaurus

Tuojiangosaurus lived in Asia, which is where scientists believe that plated dinosaurs called stegosauridaes initially evolved. Like other plated dinosaurs, Tuojiangosaurus had a series of plates and spikes protruding out of its back, neck, and tail. These bones were connected to the skin of Tuojiangosaurus and did not actually attach to the skeleton. Tuojiangosaurus had four large sharp spikes at the end of its tail, which it could use to defend itself. Strong tail muscles made it dangerous for enemies to get in the way of Tuojiangosaurus' tail. Tuojiangosaurus had longer hind legs, and shorter front legs, as well as an arched back, and a small head.
