I woold like to ask everybody if there have been any excavation's in
thought not with is werd because there are iguanodon's(prey) but no
found, there must be like Megalosaurus and baryonix and neoventaor, that
worth digging up no?
As far as I know, all the *Iguanodon* material from Belgium was found in a
coal mine; the bones had accumulated in a fissure in Carboniferous rock.
This means there is no Cretaceous rock in that area, except for the fissure
filling which has probably been completely dug out. Probably the coal mine
has also been closed.
There is Cretaceous rocks in Belgium yes, and not only in Bernissart, but
it's the most well-known locality. ;) In addition to Iguanodons we have
ornithischian teeth from Namur (Craspedodon, but I think it's a nomen
dubia), and an undescribed sauropod tibia from a Wealden quarry near
The coal mine is effectively closed now but specimens of Iguanodons and of
other "beasts" are still in the subsoil.
