Chungkingosaurus jiangbeiensis by T-PEKC Chungkingosaurus jiangbeiensis by T-PEKC
Kind of speculative reconstruction of the Chinese stegosaur Chungkingosaurus jiangbeiensis. This is one of the smallest stegosaurs known to date. Here, it's performing some weird moves, probably as part of mating dance or something (funny how almost everything strange that a dinosaur is depicted doing can be explained with sexual display. Gotta love nature!).

This time I didn't use as high quality references as I like to use, so there could be many things that may be off in this reconstruction.

Yes, it's good to have another one, it's not like there are much reconsructions of this stegosaur anyway.

Thanks! It indeed takes a lot of time to finish an artwork like this, if one works the way I work. This one took me about 10 hours, I think.

I haven't heard about it too until recently. Well, actually I've seen reconstructions of it, as well as stumbled on it's name, but each time I tried to read it I was like "Hmmm, Chun... Chung... uh, whatever! Move on.".

I see, these days, with so many new dinosaursgetting discoverd i dont catch up with them anymore but untill all others had allready drawn them.

well, thats the best part, the paleoguys seems to think out the most difficult names for new dinos. I guess this one i chinese and named after a province, just like many other chinse dinosaurs.

T-PEKC Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2013
I haven't checked what's the story behind its name. Anyway you're right about that many Chinese dinosaurs get named after the province they are found. Wikipedia says that Chungkingosaurus was found near Chongqing, so probably the name of the taxon is derived from the place it was found.

BTW, Chungkingosaurus is not a new discovery. It was found in 1977 and described in 1983.

Nice work , though I have a little doubt about Chungkingosaurus really have six or more tail spikes.

T-PEKC Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2013
In one of the reference links, there is a figure from the publication describing this taxon. I'm not sure, but I think the thagomizer and the distal portion of the tail were found articulated. On the other hand, the mounted skeleton has the typical two pairs of spike. I really don't know which is right, but I decided to follow reference from the paper describing Chungkingosaurus.

May be a whim, I found a description in Dong Zhiming's book "THE DINOSAURIAN REMAINS FORM SICHUAN BASIN,CHINA", it said CV00208 actually had another pair of spikes, but they were lost because of weathering. So I think the first two pairs of spikes of CV00208 may actually be its plates. [link]

he could also be doing a weird threat display showing off his spikes and throat armor.
Reply
:icont-pekc:
T-PEKC Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2013
Yes, he could. All sort of visual display can be applied to this reconstruction. I just prefer the mating display. In my opinion threat display should be more intimidating, thus requiring different pose than the one on the drawing.

I always thought those protrusions above the front legs looked awkward. I guess evolution works in sometimes bizarre ways.
Reply
:icont-pekc:
T-PEKC Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2013
I don't find them awkward, but I agree with you. Sometimes evolution indeed lead to very bizarre results. It's more than sure though, that there was a reason these shoulder spike evolved and persisted in most species of stegosaurs.

Thank you!

I'm still considering if Dacentrurus is going to be my next drawing or not. Because I really want to remake an old drawing of mine, involving this stegosaur, and it's going to require a lot of work, I way leave it for last. Not sure what I will do though.

Stegosaurian tails give some great opportunities to play with perspective and having really nice effects. Thagomizer spikes jumping towards the viewer. This is always impressive.
