Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital is a sponsor of the 2010 DINOSAURS! exhibit at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. Come visit Isadora our pet Iguanodon and stop by the gift shop for your free commemorative sticker afterward.
Iguanodons are bulky herbivores that have the ability to go from bipedality to quadrupedality. They have been estimated to have weighed on average of 3.5 tons and measured about 32.8 ft as an adult, with some specimens possibly as a long as 42.6 ft. This species had a large, tall but narrow skull, with teeth like those of an iguana, but much larger and more closely packed.
Learn more about all the dinosaurs that have returned to the Cleveland Zoo. From the water-spitting Dilophosaurus to the 20-foot-tall predator T. rex, 18 prehistoric beasts come to life along the shores of Waterfowl Lake this summer at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. DINOSAURS! features creatures from as far away as Australia and as close to home as Utah. This journey to prehistoric times introduces you to the powerful monsters that once ruled the earth. Through the magic of animatronic technology, DINOSAURS! brings life to the 20-foot-tall Tyrannosaurus rex, the 30-foot-long Iguanodon, the fierce Deinonychus and the fish-hunting Baryonyx.
