After crossing the bridge over the waterfall, Mr Monkey met a couple of Iguanodons and a Hylaeosaurus, with a Pterydactylus or two in the distance. When they were created by Professor Richard Owen (inventor of the name dinosaur) and the animal sculptor Benjamin Waterhouse-Hawkins, these creatures represented the height of dinosaur-based knowledge. As a result of this, the Hylaeosaurus had its back to Mr Monkey because they only had vague ideas about its face, and the Iguanodons have their thumb spikes on their noses.
