Did you know?

Scientists long thought Stegosaurus had a brain that was walnut sized? But it actually looked like a bent hot dog? The plates on its back served for display? The head was relatively low due to the the short fore limbs? This means he could gobble up low vegetation easily? He had round peglike teeth? And cheeks which gave room to store food?
