“Oh you are so colourful!”
Hesperosaurus belongs to the stegosaur family Stegosauridae, which includes other well-known herbivorous dinosaurs like Stegosaurus and Kentrosaurus. The Hesperosaurus name derived from the Greek ἕσπερος, hesperos, “western”, in reference to its location in the western United States.
Hesperosaurus lived during the Late Jurassic period, approximately 154 to 153 million years ago. Fossil remains of Hesperosaurus were discovered in rocks of the Morrison Formation in North America.
Hesperosaurus was a medium-sized stegosaur. Although not as large as some other stegosaurs like Stegosaurus, it still reached lengths of around 6 to 7 meters (20 to 23 feet). Like other stegosaurs, Hesperosaurus had a distinctive double row of bony plates running down its back and spikes on its tail.
One interesting feature that sets Hesperosaurus apart from other stegosaurs is the arrangement of its tail spikes (thagomizer). The spikes on its tail were arranged in a relatively straight line, unlike the V-shaped configuration seen in some other stegosaurs.
