Strike your own Iguanodon 50p
In 1822 Mary Mantell found a fossilised tooth embedded in the rocks by the side of the road near Lewes in Sussex. Her husband Dr Gideon Mantell, an amateur palaeontologist, realised it belonged to a giant extinct reptile which he named Iguanodon in 1825.
Iguanodon lived during the Early Cretaceous period, 140–110 million years ago. Reaching a length of about ten metres, Iguanodon probably walked on both two and four legs. It may have used its thumb spike to fend off predators or prepare its food.
