Schleich Barapasaurus Video Review by JurassicCollectables

Those talented people at JurassicCollectables have put together another dinosaur model video review.  This time, it is the Schleich Barapasaurus dinosaur model that has been given a spin on JurassicCollectable’s turntable and what a fascinating prehistoric animal replica this model is.  In this brief video (duration 4:19), the narrator talks through the finer points of this 2016 model, part of a range named by Schleich as the “First Giants”.  In the case of Barapasaurus, this is an appropriate description, it was a sizeable herbivore, one of the biggest known from the Early Jurassic.  Tentatively assigned to the Cetiosauridae family of Sauropods (whale lizards), it has been estimated that this dinosaur reached lengths of around fourteen metres.

An Indian Dinosaur

It is great to see a model manufacturer introducing a replica of a less well-known Sauropod dinosaur, especially one whose fossils are associated with southern India, a country that is proving to be quite a “hot-bed” for dinosaur discoveries, although, most of the specimens uncovered to date herald from strata laid down in the Cretaceous.

In the video, viewers are given the opportunity to see this large model from a number of perspectives.  The narrator looks at the carefully sculpted head in detail and comments on the skill of the model makers for creating such a formidable looking dinosaur model.  As it is stated in the video review, we too would not want to meet Barapasaurus on a dark night!

Big-legged Dinosaur

The narrator comments on the size of the model, estimating it to be over twelve inches in length and various props including “off-colour Alan” are used to give viewers an idea of size and scale.  Special attention is paid to the colours used on this replica.  It certainly, is a vibrant dinosaur model with its burnished reds and turquoise spots – a long way from the ubiquitous elephantine grey used in previous Schleich Sauropods such as their “Saurus” Apatosaurus, that was introduced in 2009.
