Kentrosaurus aethiopicus by CamusAltamirano Kentrosaurus aethiopicus by CamusAltamirano
Name: "Spiked lizard"
Length: 6 m
Height: 2.5 m
Weight: 5 tons.
Diet: Herbivore
Time: Late Jurassic
Location: Tanzania

The Kentrosaurus was somewhat awkwardly shaped and featured in terms of symmetry or what you might expect a dinosaur to look like off the top of your head. The rather longer hind legs (about twice the size of the fore legs) positioned the back of its body higher up, meaning that its neck and head were pointed down along its spine, bringing them close to the earth. Their greater size may have allowed the herbivore to stand up for brief periods of time on two legs, giving it freedom to reach up to eat higher foliage on trees and branches. But mostly the structure of this dinosaur was in place to make it easier for it to reach lower plants, particularly vegetation growing up from the ground.
