Everything Dinosaur team members get sent lots of amazing prehistoric animal drawings, we really do have some supremely talented customers. Today, we feature a pencil sketch from Ian, he has chosen to illustrate an iguanodontid. From the heavy build, we suggest that this is an illustration of Iguanodon bernissartensis, however, it could just as well be an illustration of another robust iguanodontid such as Barilum dawsoni.

A Quadrupedal Stance
Ian has chosen to depict his ornithopod in a quadrupedal stance. Such a large and powerful animal would have had little to fear from the predators that shared its habitat, although if threatened and needing to make a quick getaway, these animals could rear up onto their strong hindlegs and adopt a bipedal running gait.
A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:
“Our thanks to Ian for sending into us his splendid pencil drawing of a stocky, robust iguanodontid. It is always a pleasure to receive illustrations of dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals.”
Papo Iguanodon Inspires Illustration
Team members suspect that the 2018 Papo Iguanodon model may have inspired the artist to produce this illustration. What do you think?
