DINO-A-DAY #77: Kentrosaurus

Welcome to Dino-a-Day, where we'll be highlighting one prehistoric beast per day until the release of our graphic novel Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth on January 4, 2011.

Each of the ninety-six creatures we'll be featuring on this blog are taken from a huge 2-page spread in the middle of Evolution. So while you can see each individual creature here, you'll need to grab the book to see them all together!



NAME: Kentrosaurus
PRONUNCIATION: KEN-truh-SAWR-us
ORDER: Ornithischia
EXISTED DURING: Late Jurassic
DISCOVERED: Tanzania, 1915
FUN FACT: A large amount of Kentrosaurus bones were discovered in the early twentieth century during the German Tendaguru Expedition. Unfortunately many of those fossils were destroyed during World War II.
