King Kong (1932 novelization)

While the crew of the Wanderer was searching the jungles of Skull Island in search of Ann Darrow and King Kong, they came across a Stegosaurus, which they knocked out with gas bombs before shooting twice through the heart out of fear before they move on, wary of what might wait in the jungle.

Kong Reborn

In the year 2009, a species of giant Stegosaurus lived on Skull Island. They came in contact often enough with the island's Giant Gaur for it to become routine for herds to part at a watering hole to allow a Stegosaurus to drink before filling their chaotic ranks back in around it. It's bony plates were estimated to have been ten feet long on a bod the size of a locomotive.
