Although Stegosaurus dinosaurs have not lived on the earth for a long time, they were once brilliant. People now talk about dinosaurs, except for Tyrannosaurus Rex. I am afraid that the name Stegosaurus is known. Stegosaurus prospered in North America, but their ancestors were not in North America, but in our China. One kind of dinosaur went from Asia to the other side of the world and created its own splendor there. It is the ancestral ancestor of China, Huayang Dragon.
Huayangosaurus is a stegosaurus that lived in the middle of the Jurassic period, and it is also the earliest stegosaurus to be discovered so far. Its development and excavation site is Dashanpu, Zigong City, Sichuan Province, China. A large number of dinosaur fossils have been found here. The excavation of so many fossils is very rare in the world. Since Sichuan was also called as Huayang in ancient times, An ancient stegosaurus fossil was named Huayang Dragon. Since the first fossil of Huayang Dragon was unearthed, more fossils have been discovered in the following ten years. At present, 13 individuals of Huayang dragons have been unearthed from this place in Dashanpu. Three of them have very complete skeletons, which are respectively kept in Zigong Dinosaur Museum and Chongqing Natural History Museum.
The fossils of stegosaurus dinosaurs were first discovered in North America, and the stegosaurus family also grew in North America. So when the stegosaurus was first discovered, scientists believed that stegosaurus originated in North America. With the unearthing of Huayang Dragon, the origin of Stegosaurus has once again become a topic of concern for paleontologists. The emergence of Huayang Dragon provides evidence for the origin of Stegosaurus in East Asia.
