Re: Stegosaurospinophobia

The placement of the spines on the pelvis of Kentrosaurus was never based 
on direct evidence, it just seemed to make sense. Recently a Chinese 
stegosaur was found with both spikes of the same type clearly placed on the 
shoulders (originally thought to be a Tuojiangosaurus specimen, turned out to 
Gigantspinosaurus). So that type of spike is always placed on the shoulder in 
view of the lack of evidence for the pelvis.
