Sean the Stegosaurus

Nick: “So how has it been for the past 155 million years?”
Sean: “Well, becoming extinct was kind of hard because everyone I knew was gone so, I went into hiding because I got scared!”
Nick: “So what did you eat?”
Sean: “I’m a herbivore. I lived in herds of Stegosauruses in forest! We ate low growing plants because we were so dang short we couldn’t reach the other ones!”
Nick: “Interesting!”
Nick: “I heard you lived in the late Jurassic era?”
Sean: “That’s right!”
Nick: “So, about the plates on your back what where they for?”
Sean: “A recent theory is they moved up and down and were brightly colored to intimidate predators.”
Nick: “Really?Any other theories?”
Sean: “Another one in is that they were used for cooling!”
Nick: “ Strange!”
Nick: “You mentioned you were short. I’m wondering exactly how tall and long were you?”
Sean: “I am about four feet tall and about 28 feet long.”
Nick: “Thanks, that about raps up our session. Have a good night!”
