Iguanodon - 1950's - Oldies Model 
Detailed Images

The Iguanodon is an ornithopod dinosaur. This very prolific dinosaur was one of the first scientifically well known specimens, and is found in several localities in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. The somewhat strange looking dinosaur is distinguished by large thumb spikes, which may have been used for defense against predators. Iguanodon was able to walk in a bipedal or quadrupedal position.

When this dinosaur was first discovered and mounted it was believed that their thumb spikes were horns, that they dragged their tails and they were strict quadrupeds. By the late 1800's this thinking had been turned around by a paleontologist named Louis Dollo. Dollo's Iguanodon had the spikes properly placed on the hands but the dinosaur itself was in a rigidly upright position. Dollo's view of Iguanodon prevailed until the 1980's, when closer study indicated the improbability of such a stance for this much studied dinosaur. This historic model was sculpted by Japanese Paleo-Artist and Sculptor Kazunari Araki.

This fascinating model is an excellent addition to any dinosaur collection or all by itself. Collect all the Oldies Desktop models available in the Favorite Collection line of historic dinosaur models.
