Description

Der Unterkiefer des Pflanzen fressenden Dinosauriers Iguanodon bernissartensis BOULANGER ist einer der herausragenden Funde einer Diniosauriergrabung, die das damalige "Geologisch-Paläontologische Museum" in den Jahren 1978-1982 durchgeführt hat. In einer Karstspalte blieben Reste u.a. verschiedener Dinosaurier erhalten, die zuvor in einen Waldsee gefallen waren.
Dieser rechte Unterkiefer-Ast zeigt deutlich die für Pflanzenfresser typische lange Reihe meißelartiger Zähne.

Fundort: Brilon-Nehden, Sauerland/Nordrhein-Westfalen
