The dinosaurs were approximately life-size, moving and roaring at the visitors. This photo shows a Stegosaurus, famous for its vertical plates on its back and the spikes on its tail. It was a herbivore and grew to a length of 29.5 feet and weighed in at up to 7.7 tons — although this individual appears to be from a smaller individual or species of Stegosaurus. It possessed a small brain (relative to its size) — approximately the size of a dog's brain.
