Illustrated description of an Iguanodon,
from The How and Why Wonder Book of Dinosaurs, p. 29
The First Dinosaur
          The iguanodon was the first giant reptile to be discovered (1822), described and named (1825), by English obstetrician and geologist Gideon Algernon Mantell (1790-1852). In fact, the word “dinosaur” had not even been invented at the time. This dinosaur got its name because of a mistake. When its remains were discovered, it has teeth like that of modern iguanas, only bigger, hence the name iguanodon (derived from “iguana” and “tooth”).
