Donation to the museum[]

In Wild World[]

Upon completion of the iguanodon exhibit at the museum in Wild World, Blathers will give the player some information about the creature.

"Hooooo! Indeed, hootie hoo! I couldn't possibly be more enthused! Hoo hoo! The iguanodon holds the distinction of being the first dinosaur ever found! Until this beast was found, we were unaware that dinosaurs even existed, wot! One wonders if the first iguanodon tooth found was thought to be an iguana's! Ah. Hoo, terribly sorry. I went on a tangent again, didn't I? Hoo, sorry!"

In City Folk[]

After donating all of the pieces of the iguanodon to the museum in City Folk, Blathers will give the player information on the creature with the following dialogue.

"The spikes that look like spears are characteristic of the iguanodon, eh wot? When it was first found, it was actually thought to be a giant iguana because of the shape of its teeth. Indeed, that's how it got its name. It was also thought that it would fight off predators with its spikes... Any way one slices it, all signs point to this beast being one mobile, tough, herbivorous dinosaur!"

In New Leaf[]

In New Leaf, a plaque by the display offers information about the fossil instead of Blathers.

"The iguanodon is so named because it was mistakenly believed to be a large iguana. An herbivore, it is famous for its spikelike thumb claws, which seem somewhat odd on a nonpredator. Supposedly it would run on two legs but would use all four when it was just walking at its leisure."

In New Horizons[]

Upon donation to the museum or selecting "Tell me more about this!", Blathers will say:

"Ah, that graceful ballerina of the Cretaceous, the Iguanodon! When I say it was graceful, I mean by the...ahem...rather low bar set by other large herbivores. Apparently it would nimbly dodge the attacks of predators and fight back with its thumb claws! It could even walk on two legs when it wanted to! Er...truly it was the most elegant and lithe of dinosaurs."

The iguanodon is displayed along the back wall of the second fossil room, between the ankylosaurus and parasaur.
