New tests carried out on the Museum's Stegosaurus skull provide ground-breaking insights into the lifestyles of herbivorous dinosaurs.

The specimen - the most complete stegosaur in the world - was acquired by the Museum in 2014.

By CT-scanning the stegosaur's braincase, scientists were able to compare it to the skulls of similar species and determine how the Stegosaurus would eat.
