Picture Puzzle 36 – answer

The life-sized model of an iguanodon shown in last week’s puzzle, is in Hastings Museum. The most frequently found dinosaur remains in Sussex are those of the iguanodon, which lived during the Lower Cretaceous period, between 125 and 110 million years ago. The iguanodon was first identified by Lewes doctor Gideon Mantell in 1822. These early finds from a quarry nears Cuckfield were teeth, recognised by Mantell as being similar to those of the South American iguana – hence the name iguana-don, or iguana tooth.
