A Video Review of the Wild Safari Dinos Diabloceratops Dinosaur Model

With so many new horned dinosaurs being discovered over the last five years or so, model manufacturers have been working hard to catch up with all the new genera.  As part of Safari Limited’s new prehistoric animal replicas launched this year, a model of the Ceratopsian known as Diabloceratops (D. eatoni) was introduced into their Wild Safari Dinos prehistoric animal range.

Everything Dinosaur has produced a brief video review of “Devil Horned Face”, in this short video (5:50) we discuss the discovery of the fossils in Utah and explain a little about how this new model reflects the fossil material.

This Middle Campanian Ceratopsian has been assigned to the Centrosaurine group of horned dinosaurs, it is regarded as a basal member and hopefully more fossil material will be discovered on the Kaiparowits Plateau, at least half-a-dozen different dinosaurs are known from this part of southern Utah.  Around 80 million years ago the area we now know as Utah in the western United States was a lush, verdant environment that supported a large number of different dinosaur species.

Although not actually a scale model, our team members have looked at the estimated size of Diabloceratops worked out from the skull material assigned to this species, based on this data and careful measurements of the  model, we have calculated the approximate scale of this well-painted replica.  More details about this and other aspects of Diabloceratops in the video review.
