Wuerhosaurus

About Wuerhosaurus

Wuerhosaurus roamed the Earth during the Early Cretaceous Period around 135 million years ago. This large Stegosauridae, or plated dinosaur, is one of the last plated dinosaurs to have survived. Its plates were shorter and less pentagon-shaped than those of other plated dinosaurs. Notice that Wuerhosaurus' back legs are much longer than its front legs. It is believed that this allowed the animal to easily feed on low-lying vegetation.
