On the Hunt for Carnotaurus and Styracosaurus

Two new additions to the Schleich “Prehistoric Animals” model range, what we at Everything Dinosaur refer to as the “World of History range” are due out in May of this year.  The company will introduce a replica of the Abelisaurid Carnotaurus as well as a model of Styracosaurus to go with the other horned dinosaur model (Triceratops) which is already in this particular range.

Schleich had made models of these dinosaurs before, they were marketed under the “Saurus” brand before being retired some years ago.  The two new additions are certainly more colourful than their predecessors.  One of our team members managed to catch up with Schleich recently and took some pictures of these dinosaurs, which are not due to be released until the late spring.

The Schleich Carnotaurus has an articulated lower jaw.  It reminds us very much of the Carnotaurus that featured in the Disney film “Dinosaur” that we think was released in 2000.

The second new model, the Styracosaurus is coloured a vivid blue with a brightly coloured head shield.   The Schleich Styracosaurus measures approximately sixteen centimetres in length and stands around nine centimetres high.  The Carnotaurus is slightly bigger measuring twenty-two centimetres in length with a head height of around twelve centimetres.

Interestingly, 2013 marks the 100th anniversary of the naming of the genus Styracosaurus.
