Pyritized Iguanodon

Pyritized Iguanodon

Iguanodon was one of the first dinosaurs to be discovered and an incredibly important puzzle piece to our modern understanding of the creatures. The herbivore stood three meters tall and weighed over 5 tons, with sharp thumb-like claws for defense and elongated little fingers to grasp at food. It was even capable of bipedal locomotion, using its tail as a counterweight.

This specimen is a pyritized fossil piece of an iguanodon from the Weald Clay deposits on the Isle of Wight. It dates back 125,000,000 years and shows an incredible internal pattern of glittering minerals.
