What was Iguanodon?

 Q:   Ask a Question about What was Iguanodon?       
What was Iguanodon? Iguanodon was a plant-eating dinosaur that stood 5 m high and was 7 m long. It was very common throughout Europe and the USA, and is thought to have lived in large herds.

Unlike many similar plant-eaters, Iguanodon sometimes walked on two legs, or dropped down onto its front legs and walked on all four legs. We know this from its fossil footprints. Despite its size Iguanodon was often attacked by large flesh-eating dinosaurs. lt defended itself using a large horny spur on its hand.

Early palaeontologists thought that this was a horn, and they reconstructed the animal to look like a rhinoceros.

Iguanodon was a very successful animal and survived for about 30 million years. The remains of 39 Iguanodon were found in a single site in Belgium, where a whole herd appears to have perished. Unusually, many of these skeletons are complete.
