About Everything Dinosaur’s Blog

Welcome to the Everything Dinosaur Web Log

Everything Dinosaur are a team of teachers, parents and dinosaur enthusiasts who write about anything and everything to do with dinosaurs, fossils and other prehistoric animals.  The blog was established in 2007 with the aim of providing open access to news about palaeontology, research into dinosaurs and updates on fossil discoveries.  Our blog articles also provide an insight into Everything Dinosaur’s work with schools, museums and other educational bodies as we strive to help inform and educate with regards to the amazing history of our planet.

One of our objectives is to provide updates on palaeontology and other elements of the Earth sciences but in a way that minimises the technical terms and use of jargon.  We try to write articles that can be read by those who don’t have a formal scientific training, but share our interest in all things related to palaeontology.  Articles that can be used by fellow teachers, articles that showcase the work of others, articles whose aim is to inform and to educate.

Our company, Everything Dinosaur: Everything Dinosaur was formed in 2005, we celebrate it’s anniversary on August 1st each year, our cake baking is getting better!  Everything Dinosaur specialises in the supply of dinosaur and prehistoric animal related toys, models, books, posters, clothing and other dinosaur themed merchandise.  Every single item that gets put onto our website is tested and has to be approved by our own dinosaur experts.  We are passionate about what we do and hopefully this blog helps to keep our customers informed about our activities, new products and our adventures.

When we started this blog, we agreed that we would try to produce an article every day.  We have just about managed to do that and now our blog posts number in excess of 2,000.  In addition, we made a promise that we would read every comment, respond to every email, reply to every question that we got asked.  We have just about managed to stick to this principle too.  Not bad for a bunch of H. sapiens.

    I work for the mail online in London. We would like to use the image of the dinosaur brain http://blog.everythingdinosaur.co.uk/blog/_archives/2013/11/13/scientists-create-detailed-map-of-the-dinosaur-brain.html?utm_source=feedly
    Would it be OK to take from your site? Thanks

    • Mike says:

      There are two pics related to that article, one is a picture of the T. rex head that comes from our own exhibitions archive, the other which relates to the brain morphology of the early bird Archaeopteryx comes from an earlier paper on the brains of extinct animals published by a scientist from the American Museum of Natural History New York, we would not know about reproduction permissions concerning the Archaeopteryx photograph.

      Hope this helps.

    Hi there,

    Would you like to receive a copy of The Paleoart of Julius Csotonyi for review?

    If so, shoot me an email.

    I don’t know if you guys can help me or not. My brother (adult) has a T-Rex plastic figure that he takes pictures doing various activities. We (his loving sisters) want to try to find one exactly alike to play some tricks on him. I noticed that your blog has a great deal of information on the various plastic figures that come out. Is there anyway, if I send you a picture, that you could help us identify the maker? I know it is a long shot but are having fun with his T-Rex antics.


  4. Jim says:


    Just wanted to say I love your site. My son is obsessed with dinosaurs and I really don’t know what we’d do without you guys!

    Thanks a bunch!

    Not really related, but I’m doing Dinovember with my class for the first time and would love another class to share writing/photos with, do you know any schools who are doing it?


    • Mike says:

      We work with lots of schools but we don’t know who is doing Dinovember, you are welcome to contact us at Everything Dinosaur with examples of the children’s work.

    Do you have any idea where I can get the Green Papo T-Rex? Not the running version, but the standing one.

  7. Scott Macdonald says:

    I saw a dinosaur episode on one of the cable channels several years ago. Focus of one episode was a watering hole which was drying up attracting all the dinosaurs and other animals. One dinosaur was living in the hole and was able to hibernate. Sadly another dinosaur found him while he was in this sleep like state. Which dinosaur was that and do you know name of show. Would really like a copy. THANKS! Scott

    • Mike says:

      I think you refer to a scene from the Walking with Monsters DVD, Gorgonopsids digging up Labyrinthodont amphibian that has gone into dormancy (aestivation) as the waterhole dries up. The scene represents the Permian and it is featured in episode 3. No dinosaurs I’m afraid.

  8. Adam says:


    I work for a production company and we’re looking for the UK’s biggest dinosaur fan fir part of a documentary we are making. Someone with tons of dinosaur memorabilia round there house and all that type of thing.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks guys

    Hey there;
    My daughter is a huge dinosaur enthusiast and is currently quite serious about pursuing a career in paleontology. I ready that you have people who do guest spots in classrooms which would be really great, but we’re located on the east coast of Canada. Do you have anyone in our area who could do one?

  10. Elly Eversett says:

    Hi there,

    How are you?

    My name is Elly. I’m contacting you regarding the new Jurassic World film. I have a press release that I’d love to send over to you. Do you have an email address that I could send it to?

    Best wishes,

    Hi Guys,

    I’ve seen some internet chatter around the possibility of a Papo Giganotosaurus either this year or next, have you heard any rumours around this?

    Many Thanks.

    • Mike says:

      Hello Paul,

      The rumours that Papo will introduce a Giganotosaurus replica have persisted for several years, we have discussed a variety of models with Papo’s senior management including a possible Giganotosaurus. We are aware that Papo plans to add more models to its “Les Dinosaures” range starting in the first quarter of 2017. Product identities will have to remain confidential for the time being, we will make an official announcement around 3rd week of December regarding Papo’s model plans for 2017. From the information we have, we are not aware of any plans to add Giganotosaurus to the range. Hope this helps.

    My first novel Edge of Extinction-The Ark Plan (a middle grade novel) just came out with HarperCollins in both the US and the UK, and I’d love to send you a copy for review! I think your readers would enjoy it. There are tons of books about dinosaurs for toddlers, but there isn’t much out there for the kids who kept their love of dinosaurs into middle school. Please let me know if you are interested!

  17. Beatriz says:

    I´m a university teacher in Spain(Madrid,UFV) and i´d like permission to use illustrations on your blog that are cited as your site about “The Lizard from Edmonton – Edmontosaurus” and any photographs to my research work . I am researching bone tumors in dinosaurs(Hadrosaurius) and I need
    all possible information that you can provide me,if you would be so kind.
    Thanks and best wishes.

  18. Jacob Caudill says:

    I was shown your Schleich 2017 articles. I was wondering if I could use the pictures you’ve posted to update my topic about the new 2017 Schleich figures, and if so, what I have to do to use them.


  19. Jessica says:

    Thank you for all the effort you put into this site. I especially love the artwork and the good reviews about books. Keep up the outstanding work, you silly, amazing, arty enthusiasts. Thanks for being the best part of my Monday.

  20. Ryan says:

    I am interested in writing about dinosaurs and fossil research and am wanting to find agents, editors, or other people in this area that I could send a query letter to. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you! Love the website!

    • Mike says:

      We suspect you are based in the United States, if this is the case our advice would be to contact a number of natural history museums, universities and other academic bodies. These organisations can probably provide contact details for you or point you in the right direction.

  21. xander says:

  22. Matt Bille says:

    Thank you for your excellent pieces on Dunkleosteus, including the advance news on a CollectA model as part of a 2017 mini collection. I have a page over on FaceBook on this animal and would be delighted if you took a look and offered comments. I posted about ED today. Thanks

  23. Edgar Díaz. says:

    Hi !
    I really would like to learn as much as possible whatever I could related to Dinosuars, so, How I could receive or get your interesting articles ?
    Thanks in advance.

    • Mike says:

      Our best advice is to explore the Everything Dinosaur blog, it contains thousands of articles about fossils, new research, dinosaur discoveries and so forth, all articles are written by dedicated and knowledgeable team members and we try to post up an article every day.

  24. David says:

    Hi Guys,

    Following a recent family trip to the Natural History Museum in NYC (and also after watching Attenborough and the Giant Dinosaur), my son is very interested in Titanosaurs and the fearsome Tyrannotitan. I wanted to ask if you know of any manufacturer who makes, or has plans to make, figures or models of these amazing creatures?

    Kind Regards,
