The "Surrey Dinosaur" is also known as "Claws"
and if you are including re-creations the Crystal Palace Iguanodons are 
known as "Rock"(The one on all fours) and "Paw" (the one with  a raised 
front foot)these names were (as far as I know) first used in a childrens 
story called "Dinosaurs don't die" by a local writer who's name I'm afraid I 
can't remember.
