Description

Iguanodon was an ornithopod dinosaur from between the mid-Jurassic and late Cretaceous periods. Iguanodon is known for its large, spiked thumbs. A number of possible uses have been suggested for these thumbs, including defense from predators, breaking into seeds and fruits, or stripping leaves from branches.

Discovery

Iguanodon was first discovered in 1822 in Tilgate Forest, Cuckfield, England by Gideon Mantell. The find consisted of several fossilized teeth. Initially dismissed as the teeth of fish or of a rhinoceros, it took until 1824 for Iguanodon to be formally recognized. A more complete specimen was discovered in 1834, in Kent. The spiked thumb, one of Iguanodon's most defining features, was initially assumed to be attached to the nose, but subsequent discoveries revealed its true function.

Paleoecology

Analysis of Iguanodon jaws suggests that it was able to eat tough plant material by grinding its food.
