Description:

Iguanodon, or "iguana tooth," caused a huge stir when its fossilized teeth and some bones were discovered in England in 1822. The teeth were similar in shape to the teeth of modern-day iguanas--but they were huge. Broad and flat with ridges for grinding, the teeth were perfectly designed for chewing tough plants.

When standing upright on its powerful hind legs, Iguanodon is tall enough to look into a second story window, and when down on all fours is almost as long as a school bus. In your zoo, you'll see Iguanodon take advantage of its height and sharp turtle-like beak to eat from leafy treetops and the taller species of cycads. Iguanodon's front legs are a good deal shorter than its hind legs, so it can also eat lower-lying vegetation when down on all fours. This versatility is a blessing for the Iguanodons, because with five tons to nourish they are almost always hungry.

As a species, Iguanodons were very successful--they were found all across Europe, Asia, and North America. Roaming in open woodlands, Iguanodons like the 'safety in numbers' that herds provide. Able to run up to 20 kilometers an hour, Iguanodons are further equipped to protect themselves from giant meat-eating predators with sharp conical "thumb spikes" on their forelimbs. Of course, in your zoo they won't need to worry about protecting themselves....Right?
