Early Jurassic - 190 to 200 million years ago

Late Jurassic - 150 million years ago
Western North America and Europe(Portugal)

Whether battling its own kind or predators, Stegosaurus could swing its two pairs of tail spikes (each up to 4 feet long) as awesome defensive weapons.

These plates may have allowed Stegosaurus to appear larger, thereby discouraging enemy attack.
