If by "_I. orientalis_" you mean the type material: these bones are very
fragmentary and cannot be distinguished from _I. bernissartensis_ (a 11 m
If by "_I. orientalis_" you mean the big-nosed iguanodontian from Mongolia
(which you probably do), then that dinosaur's true name is _Altirhinus
kurzanovi_. This ornithopod is about 8 m long (a tad over 26 feet).
