1. Iguanodon
2. Cretaceous?
3. Probably only Tyrannosaurus, since they lived in groups.
5. Umm... originally scientists thought the horn was on it's head (almost common knowledge by now :P ). Can't think of anything else off the top of my head.

Wrong, wrong. Also 'its' not 'it's'.

5. Two interesting facts
1. Stegosaurus
2.Jurassic
3. Allosaurus
4. Roof lizard
5. The spiked tail is called a thagomizer which comes from Gary Larson's "The Far Side" (I would NEVER miss this LOL) and Stegosaurus had a second brain that controlled reflexes. Also there is one specimen in the USNM that is called the "road kill" specimen because it looks like it was run over

What is the difference between protosomes and deuterosomes? Names some groups from the list that are protosomes. Do the same for deuterosomes
