Tuojiangosaurus (meaning “Tuo River Lizard”) is a genus of stegosaurid from the Late Jurassic of China. It would have probably been hunted by dinosaurs such as Yangchuanosaurus and Monolophosaurus. It was about 7 metres (23 feet) long, and about 2 metres (6.6 feet) tall. It’s type species, T. multispinus was named in 1977, one hundred years after Stegosaurus. Tuojiangosaurus is a very much known Sichuan stegosaur. This is because 2 skeletons were found, one over 50% complete, plus, paleontologists know a lot about it’s closest cousins, Stegosaurus and Kentrosaurus. Like other stegosaurs, it had features like a narrow head and a thagomizer at the end of it’s tail. Like Kentrosaurus, but unlike Stegosaurus, it had a shoulder spike, located on it’s shoulders, hence the name.
