The Venture crew encounter a Stegosaurus in King Kong (1933)

While the crew of the Venture pursued King Kong through the jungles of Skull Island, they came upon a foraging Stegosaurus, which became alarmed and charged them. Carl Denham used one of his gas bombs to knock the Stegosaurus over, and another one of the men finished it with a rifle shot. Another appeared in a deleted scene when Denham runs back to the village, after Kong's battle with the Tyrannosaurus rex.
