Stegosaurus is a highly recognized dinosaur. This quadrupedal dinosaur, although well armored, has a kind of elegant grace. The spikes on its tail and plates, which run the length of its spine, are the subject of much speculation. Although it is mostly agreed that the tail spikes would have served a defense function, theories on the plates propose everything from a defensive mechanism to a mating signal.
This brightly colored dinosaur makes an excellent child's toy. There are several Vinyl Models available in the Favorite Collection line of soft bodied toys. Mr. Kazunari Araki, a famous Japanese sculptor, supervised the the production of this line of Favorite Collection models.
