Chungkingosaurus is one of the smallest known Stegosaurs. It was a herbivore that once roamed China. Its name means 'Chongqing lizard'. Like Stegosaurus, it possessed tail spikes to defend itself with. Its smaller size, smaller snout and non-overlapping teeth differentiated it from Tuojiangosaurus which it closely resembled.
Material for Chungkingosaurus was found from 1977 onwards in the Chunking Group of the Upper Shaximiao Formation.
The varied dinosaur and other finds from the Upper Shaximiao Formation indicate a diverse environment. Crocodile and turtle fossils suggest plentiful water of an open nature.
