A gliding Stegosaurus. From the Ogden Standard-Examiner, 1920. From Brian Switek's Dinosaur Tracking.
With the Stegosaur Gallery coming up soon, we've decided to do a series of posts aimed to help inspire our readers/artists in their stegosaur art!
The above image comes from Brian Switek's Dinosaur Tracking post on The Flying Gliding Stegosaur. It originally came from the Ogden Standard-Examiner's comic section published in 1920!
While the above critter defies aerodynamics, as well as common sense, it does bring up the question: What the deuce ARE these amazing plates for?
Display and communication? Thermoregulation? Defense? Hat rack? All of the above? I look forward to the debate in the comments section below!
