The ornithischian dinosaur Hypsilophodon from the Wealden of the Isle of Wight. [Peter M Galton]. Hypsilophodons are almost exclusively collected from the “Hypsilophodon Bed” in the cliffs and sea floor close to Cowleaze Chine, on the Isle of Wight.

Only remains from the Isle of Wight have been confidently identified as Hypsilophodon. Lifestyle. A small ornithopod dinosaur, it was originally believed by scientists to be arboreal, using its fourth toe to hold onto branches in a similar manner to the hallux of a bird. Later study in the ’s showed this to be unlikely, and Hypsilophodon is now believed to have lived a gazelle-like lifestyle, feeding on the ferns and cycads, running away when attacked by predators.

Hypsilophodon is one of the more famous dinosaurs that have been discovered in the Isle of Wight,‭ ‬however its discovery was delayed by the fact that for the first twenty years of the first fossils discovery,‭ ‬Hypsilophodon was actually believed to be a juvenile Iguanodon.‭ ‬This is of course in reference to the Mantell-Bowerbank block,‭ ‬a collection of post cranial remains with no skull that was preserved flat on.

Hypsilophodon was a dinosaur which lived approximately million years ago during the early Cretaceous Period. It was first discovered on the Isle of Wright in It was then named in by Thomas Huxley.

He gave it the name Hypsilophodon—a name which means “high crested tooth.” since its original discovery. The Ornithischian (bird-hipped) dinosaurs are one of the two major subdivisions of the Dinosauria, and consist of predominantly herbivorous dinosaurs.

Iguanodon The first ornithiscian dinosaur, Iguanodon was discovered in Ringmer, East Sussex (UK) by Gideon Mantell 1. Hypsilophodon (meaning "Hypsilophus-tooth") is an ornithopod dinosaur genus from the Early Cretaceous period of England.

The first remains of Hypsilophodon were found in and in the type species Hypsilophodon foxii was named. Abundant fossil discoveries were made on Characters: Hyp Hyp's Father. Ornithischia (/ ɔːr n ɪ ˈ θ ɪ s k i ə /) is an extinct clade of mainly herbivorous dinosaurs characterized by a pelvic structure superficially similar to that of birds.

The name Ornithischia, or "bird-hipped", reflects this similarity and is derived from the Greek stem ornith- (ὀρνιθ-), meaning "of a bird", and ischion (ἴσχιον), plural ischia, meaning "hip joint". The Reverend William D. Fox () was born in Cumberland. He moved to the Isle of Wight in to take up the post of curate at the Parish church of St Mary the Virgin in Brixton (Brighstone) on the Isle of Wight.

He became a prolific collector of dinosaur remains and other fossils, most notably from Brighstone and Brook Bays. Hypsilophodon is a small herbivore from Early Cretaceous Britain.

A bipedal dinosaur, it had a small beak filled with sharp teeth for shredding plant material and four fingered hands. Among the earliest dinosaurs to be discovered, Hypsilophodon was at first thought to have been a juvenile Iguanodon, more discoveries showed that it was in fact a completely different species.

Ornithischian, any member of the large taxonomic group of herbivorous dinosaurs comprising Triceratops and all dinosaurs more closely related to it than to ornithischians (meaning “bird-hipped”) are one of the two major groups of dinosaurs, the other being the ischians are so called because their hip bones were superficially arranged like those of birds in that.

NORMAN, FLS. The ornithischian dinosaur Hypsilophodon from the Wealden of the Isle of Wight. Hypsilophodon (meaning “high-ridged-” or “high-crested-tooth”) was a small ornithopod dinosaur that was originally thought to have been arboreal using its fourth toe to hang onto branches.

We now know that it was a fully terrestrial small bipedal herbivore built up for speed and agility to outrun predators. It probably ate ferns and cycads. Hypsilophodon from the Lower Cretaceous of the Isle of Wight, England, is a typical example.

As they grew in size, they could move on four legs but still kept the habit of standing up on their hind legs when needed to reach food or perhaps to defend themselves or to run.

Ornithopoda means "bird feet", from the Greek ornithos ("bird") and pous ("feet"); this refers to their characteristic three-toed feet, although many early forms retained four toes.

They were also characterized by having no armour, the development of a horny beak, an elongated pubis that eventually extended past the ilium, and a missing hole in the lower jaw, called a Mandibular fenestrae.

Hypsilophodon foxii (“Fox’s high-ridged tooth”) was one of the first dinosaurs discovered. This small, plant-eating animal was first discovered ina mere seven years after Sir Richard Owen coined the term dinosaur.Hypsilophodon ("Hypsilophusov zub") bio je rod ornitopoda iz razdoblja rane jivao je današnju Englesku.
