Like all stegosaurids, Huayangosaurus eats from ground herbivore feeders. They are armored and posses spiked tails capable of inflicting damage to other dinosaurs.
Huayangosaurus can live in modest sized social groups. They are relatively tolerant of dinosaurs from other species, but don't like to feel overwhelmed.
Huayangosaurus needs a good sized territory with plenty of grassland, and a slightly smaller area of forest.

Huayangosaurus was a small Stegosaur from China. Its name means 'Huayang lizard' from the region it was first discovered.
It had the same small head, back plates, and spiked tail. Unlike Stegosaurus, its back plates were more like spikes.


A dozen specimens of Huayangosaurus were excavated from Dashanpu Quarry in 1979 and 1980. The holotype specimen of a partial skeleton, with relatively complete head, was taken from the lower Shaximiao Formation.


The region where Huayangosaurus has been found supported a wide variety of flora and fauna. With many aquatic species present as well.
