On November 15th
, 2007, the Post Authority of Bosnia and Herzegovina issued
a stamp depicting the dinosaur Stegosaurus
, even though no fossil remains of
any dinosaurs have been found in the country to date.
Stegosaurus is a genus of herbivorous, four-legged,
armored dinosaur from the Late Jurassic, characterized by the distinctive kite-shaped
upright plates along their backs and spikes on their tails.
Fossils of the genus have been found in the western
United States and in
where they are found in Kimmeridgian- to Tithonian-aged strata, dating to between
155 and 145 million years ago.
Stegosaurus usually grew to a length of about 6.5 metres,
but some reached 9 metres.
The skull and brain were very small for such a large animal.
The forelimbs were much shorter than the hind limbs, which gave the back a
characteristically arched appearance.
The feet were short and broad.
