Kentrosaurus is the loveliest dinosaur :D

nice to know:
only one species of Kentrosaurus is known: Kentrosaurus aethiopicus
Kentrosaurus was a herbivore
Kentrosaurus lived in the late Jurassic period, between approximately 156 million and 150 million years ago.
Kentrosaurus lived in what is today East Africa.
Kentrosaurus was probably about 5 meters long, and probably weighted around 2 tons.
The most noteable feature of Kentrosaurus is its armor defenses which protected the animal from predators.
  • Its upper back was protected by twin rows of bony plates.
  • Its lower back and tail was protected by sharp spikes, each up to 60 centimeters long.
