The Kentrosaurus was a peaceful herbivore, but it was far from defenceless. The sharp spikes on its neck and back were capable of inflicting serious injuries on predators. But most dangerous of all were the long spikes on its tail. If it had to defend itself, it lashed its tail around like a giant club.

Description

The Kentrosaurus was a relative of the Stegosaurus. The Kentrosaurus was a smaller Stegosaurus with a length of 5 metres. It had plates and spines arranged in pairs on its back, which probably served to ward off enemies or were used in courtship.

The Kentrosaurus was probably a herbivore. Researchers conclude this from skeletal remains. The Kentrosaurus were relatives of the Stegosaurus. However, the Kentrosaurus had a body length of about 5 metres, were thus much smaller and they carried their plates and spines arranged in pairs on the back and tail. It is believed that these plates and spikes were their defence against enemies or were used during courtship.
