Hypsilophodon



dinosaur picture hypsilophodon


Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Sauropsida
  Superorder Dinosauria
  Order Ornithischia
  Suborder Cerapoda
  Infraorder Ornithopoda
  Parvorder Iguanodontia
  Family Hypsilophodontidae
  Genus Hypsilophodon
Hypsilophodon lived in the early Cretaceous period, about 125 to 120 million years ago in England, Portugal and North America.

Hypsilophodon was a herbivore (plant-eater), about 4 to 7 feet (1.2 to 2.1 meters) long.

About 20 perfect fossilized skeletons of Hypsilophodon have been found together in the Isle of Wight, England, so it seems likely that these animals must have lived and died together. Scientists therefore believe that Hypsilophodon lived in herds.

The first remains of Hypsilophodon were discovered in 1849, but were incorrectly believed to be a young Iguanodon. Only in 1870, was Hypsilophodon properly described (by T.H. Huxley) after he had been provided with a number of fossils skeletons by Rev. William Darwin Fox. For almost a century, Hypsilophodon was thought to have been tree-dwelling, much like a modern tree-kangeroo. However, in the 1970s, the skeleton was reexamined, and most scientists now believe that there is in fact no evidence that Hypsilophodon lived in the trees - in fact, it seems more likely that Hypsilophodon is actually a fast runner.
