Movie Madness?

Now, I have cut up a video, very carefully, to just include the following clip. Dinosaur Planet from Discovery featured a short, about 3 min., clip that included what they called "Dwarf Iguanodon." This Iguanodon is actually modeled after a smaller animal named Rhabdodon. Rhabdodon is thought to be a missing link animal between Hypsilophodonts and Hadrosaurs. Also, Rhabdodon has a very close skeletal structure and look to Iguanodon, so we can use this clip to explore believed and perceived territorial attitudes and confrontation styles of the larger and true Iguanodon:
