Scale Model of Amargasaurus available in Spring 2012
One of the more bizarre of the late Diplodocids is the Amargasaurus from the Lower Cretaceous strata of Argentina. This dinosaur had a relatively short neck for a Sauropod. The spines sticking up from the backbone between the shoulders and the hips probably carried a sail-like structure with the cervical spines perhaps providing a deterrent from attack.
This Cretaceous giant will be available as a 1:40 scale model from Collecta. The dinosaur replica will be available in the spring.

We are delighted with this new interpretation of this Diplodocid.
