A New Old Face
The second dinosaur ever to be named and the first to have a banquet given inside its very incorrectly rebuilt skeleton, this week's dinosaur is a contemporary of Baryonyx, Utahraptor, Compsognathus, and many more in the early Cretaceous time period while living in Europe, Asia, and North America simultaneously. This week will be all about one of the plainest looking, child friendly (I remember seeing it all the time growing up in my dinosaur books, on TV, and everywhere else), and earliest discovered dinosaurs: Iguanodon.
