Iguanodon was a peaceful herbivore of the Cretaceous period from 135 - 125 MYA. Its length ranged from 9 to 11 metres; height 5 metres; and weight 5,000 kgs. Iguanodon possessed a narrow skull, a horny toothless beak used for grazing, and tall ridged cheek teeth. It featured five-fingered hands that were most unique, each with a spiked thumb, three middle fingers with hoof-like claws, and a grasping fifth digit. Relatively quick for a herding animal, it could walk on all fours. The body moved horizontally with the head forward-pointing and held low. This was counterbalanced by its long, stiff, heavy tail.
