Iguanodon bernissartensis
Iguanodon bernissartensis is a species of herbivorous iguanodontid ornithopod dinosaur that lived during the Cretaceous period, approximately 126 to 125 million years ago, in what is now Western Europe, specifically in what is now Belgium. It was one of the first dinosaurs to be described and named, and is one of the best-known and most iconic dinosaurs in the world.

This dinosaur was large and robust, with a length of approximately 9 meters and a weight that could reach 3 tons. It was characterized by its distinctive serrated beak, which allowed it to pluck and crush vegetation, as well as its hands with spur-shaped thumbs, which it possibly used to defend itself from predators or to manipulate objects.

One of the most notable discoveries of Iguanodon bernissartensis occurred in the Bernissart coal mine in Belgium, where more than 30 almost complete skeletons were found in the 1870s. These fossils provided valuable information about the anatomy and behavior of this species. dinosaur, as well as on the paleobiology of dinosaurs in general.

It is believed that Iguanodon bernissartensis was a social animal that lived in herds and fed mainly on low plants and bushes. Its body structure suggests that it was capable of moving on both two legs and four, which gave it great locomotor versatility.
