The Stegosaurus gets the name "Roof Lizard" because it is covered in bony plates. The vertical plates along its back may have helped control body temperature by radiating and absorbing heat. It is considered one of the most recognizable dinosaurs because of its unique shape. Its brain is believed to have been no larger than that of a dog brain. The Stegosaurus lived about 144 million years ago!
