Stegosaurus stenops
Stegosaurus stenops, a species of dinosaur that lived during the Late Jurassic period, approximately 155 to 150 million years ago. It is a herbivorous dinosaur that belonged to the group of ornithischian dinosaurs and is known for its distinctive appearance due to the bony plates and spines it had on its back.

Most notable features of Stegosaurus stenops:

Bony plates: This dinosaur had a series of bony plates along its back, which were dermal plates made up of bone tissue. These plates were not pointed and were not used for defense; instead, it is believed that they had thermoregulatory functions or could have been used in visual communication between individuals.

Tail spines: The most distinctive feature of Stegosaurus stenops was its tail, which was adorned with four large bony spines known as "thagomizers." These spines were sharp at the tip and were probably used as a defense against predators.

Size: Stegosaurus stenops was a moderately sized dinosaur compared to some of its relatives. It had a large and heavy body, with a length of around 5.5 meters and a height of approximately 3 meters at the hip.

Herbivore: Although it had an intimidating appearance due to its plates and spines, Stegosaurus stenops was a herbivore. It fed mainly on plants, such as ferns, cycads and conifers.

Extinction: Like most dinosaurs, Stegosaurus stenops became extinct at the end of the Jurassic period, approximately 150 million years ago. The exact reasons for their extinction are not yet fully understood, but factors such as climate changes and competition with other herbivores may have contributed to their disappearance.
