Description

Wuerhosaurus is a large plant-eating dinosaur from the stegosaurid family, and first existed during the Early Cretaceous period in Asia. Wuerhosaurus can grow to more than 8m in length and weighs in excess of four tons, partly due to the thick, bony plates that protect its body from predators – and it also has a spiked tail that help it to defend itself when under attack.

Discovery

The first Wuerhosaurus was discovered by renowned Chinese paleontologist Dong Zhiming in 1973 while exploring the Tugulu Group in Xinjiang, and the genus is named after the nearby city of Wuerho. Zhiming’s specimen was compromised of a partial skeleton that featured numerous vertebrae as well as a near-complete pelvis.

Paleoecology

Wuerhosaurus roamed China and Mongolia around 130 million years ago, making it one of the latest genera of stegosaurid to have existed. Experts believe that its short legs were adapted to allow for easy access to ground-level vegetation.
