Stegosaurus stenops by DeinonychusEmpire Stegosaurus stenops by DeinonychusEmpire
Stegosaurus (roof lizard) is a well-known genus of ornithischian dinosaur first named by Othniel Charles Marsh during the Bone Wars in 1877. S. stenops (narrow-faced roof lizard), the species featured here, was named in 1887 also by Marsh. It is the most common and well-known of the three currently valid Stegosaurus species, known from 55 specimens. S. stenops was about 23 feet long.

Awesome color.:) Although IMO, "Stegosaurus" stenops is different enough from Stegosaurus to warrant a seperate genus, Diracodon stenops.;)

Well, that is IMO so until I see a publication on it don't expect me to comply. You just like the name Diracodon don't you? =P

Thanks though!

Well, I'm actually not.a fan of the name Diracodon, but based on comparisons of skeletals between it and Stegosaurus ungulatus, they look very different IMO ;)

You're welcome BTW :D

Like olivegreen with a light pink.
... Bright Orange with light gray.
Black with pink.
Red with purple.
