This is going off of a few ideas about Fossils and Summoning Tables as well as the Past Dimension that I talked about in other posts. To respect the posting guidelines, I will suggest different Extinct Mobs in separate posts. If you are unfamiliar with the ideas of Fossils and Summoning Tables, or The Past Dimension, please check out my posts by those same titles.
Stegosaurus are large, neutral mobs that spawn naturally in the Past, or can be spawned using a Summoning Table with Stegosaurus Fossils. They have a fairly large HP pool, although not quite as much as Triceratops. Stegos will turn aggressive if attacked, although hitting one Stego won't trigger all in the vicinity. They attack by turning and swinging their spiked tails, which are dangerous and can even break some blocks. Like Triceratops, they are bred with Ferns, and they lay two eggs at time. Also like Trikes, Stegos can only be tamed by stealing an egg and hatching it, although a mating pair of Stegos will turn aggressive if an egg is taken. For a baby to be tamed, there must be no adult Stegos within a radius at the time of hatching. Due to its rows of plates, only one saddle can be fitted on a tamed Stego. The rider can't attack with tools or weapons because the Attack Button makes the Stego turn around and whack wherever the player's crosshair is pointing. Stegos can quickly destroy groups of wood and other weaker blocks, making them very useful for demolishing buildings and harvesting lumber.
