Description

At around 8.5m in length, Huayangosaurus resembles a smaller version of Stegosaurus, sharing the same distinctive back plates as its more renowned relative. Its name translates to ‘Huayang lizard’, in reference to the location of its discovery, the previous name of the Sichuan region of China. As well as the prominent armored plates on its back, Huayangosaurus has a spiked tail that helps it to defend itself from predators.

Discovery

The first Huayangosaurus specimen was discovered in 1979, when a team led by Chinese paleontologist Dong Zhiming unearthed the remains of twelve stegosauridae from a quarry in Zigong, Sichuan. The excavation included one specimen that could not be ascribed to an existing genus – in 1982, it was officially classified as a new genus, Huayangosaurus.

Paleoecology

Huayangosaurus inhabited the south-west of China during the Mid Jurassic period, around 160-170m years ago. This environment featured many rivers and lakes during this period, providing plenty of vegetation for herbivores like Huayangosaurus.
