Inside the glass cage of the Bernissart Iguanodons in the Museum of Natural Sciences, one much smaller specimen stands out.

That means the specimen belongs to a different genus and species than the larger iguanodons it is surrounded by.

News - Making-of Plateosaurus Ben

135 years after the Bernissart Iguanodons, the Museum of Natural Sciences showcases an authentic and complete dinosaur fossil: Ben, the Plateosaurus from Switzerland.

After one and a half year of chiselling, gluing and welding, Ben the Plateosaurus – 6.4 meters long and 210 million years old – is the new star of our Museum of Natural Sciences. Plateosaurus was one of the first long-necked dinosaurs, possibly an ancestor of Diplodocus. This is Ben’s story.
