Collecta Pachycephalosaurus Dinosaur Model Reviewed
Team members at Everything Dinosaur, feel that sometimes the Pachycephalosaurs do not get the credit they deserve. Although known only from fossil fragments (most species, the exceptions are the likes of Stegoceras validum and Dracorex hogwartsia although this may prove to be a juvenile Pachycephalosaurus wyomingensis), these Ornithischian dinosaurs may represent one of the most diverse and abundant clades of the Dinosauria in the very Late Cretaceous.
These “bone-headed” dinosaurs have featured in a number of films and television programmes, albeit mostly as very minor supporting characters to the “A-lister” dinosaurs such as the Tyrannosaurs and Dromaeosaurs. When Collecta introduced a model of Pachycephalosaurus into their not-to-scale prehistoric life model series, we decided to create a short five minute video review of this replica.

In this brief video, (5:24) we review this dinosaur replica and comment on the way it reflects current thinking regarding the anatomy of these Late Cretaceous dinosaurs. Palaeontology may not be known for its wild speculation, but given the paucity of the current fossil record which contrasts with the likely relative abundance of Pachycephalosaurs living in northern latitudes during the Late Cretaceous, there are probably some amazing insights and discoveries concerning this particular group of dinosaurs just waiting to be made.
