#Fossil FridayOver the years I have collected lots of fossils from all over the globe. I have started posting photos of these to my facebook page for #FossilFriday. I'm going to post them here on the blog too.
So far I've been focusing on fossils I have found on the Isle of Wight, UK. This is the best place in Europe to find dinosaur fossils.
So here's this week's image:
|Iguanodon. The best dinosaur, or your money back.|
I suppose technically I should say that this is <probably> from Mantellisaurus, which is the new name for Iguanodon atherfieldensis. I'm not a big fan of taxonomists constantly renaming taxa. Collected from the Wessex Fm (Barremian; Lower Cretaceous, ~130 Ma), Brighstone, Isle of Wight, UK.
