Stegosaurus is an armoured dinosaur with two parallel rows of bony back wedges rising into the air along its curved spine. It had a rather unusual posture with its highly arched back, quadrupedal movement, a long head held low to the ground on a thick but extended neck, and its stiff tail held high in the air. Its tail was also spiked but with long thinner spikes for fighting. Its spine plates served for defence, threat displays, but also thermal regulation like the sail of Dimetrodon. It is an aggressive herbivore, responding to threats by fighting back. Viciously. Perhaps because of having one of the very smallest known Dinosaur brains.
