Eofauna Steppe Mammoth Dimensions and Scale

Yesterday, (August 21st), Everything Dinosaur announced that it would be selling the Eofauna Scientific Research Steppe Mammoth model.  Everything Dinosaur has been granted exclusive access to this new figure for on-line sales for a British Isles-based company.  We have already received lots and lots of enquiries about this beautiful replica and in this short blog article we shall provide information on two of the most common questions that we have been asked about this figure – how big is it?  What scale is it in?

The photograph above shows this new figure posed against one of our geology field rulers.  These rulers are handy as they photograph really clearly and instantly provide a guide to the size and scale of any given replica.

The Dimensions of the Eofauna Scientific Research Steppe Mammoth Model

Out with the tape and the callipers and these are the approximate dimensions of the figure:

  • Length approximately 19 cm (measured from the furthermost back heel to the anterior face of the raised tusks)
  • Height to shoulders approximately 11.5 cm
  • Height to top of the head approximately 12.8 cm
  • Height to tip of the raised tusks (highest part of the model) approximately 15.5 cm
  • Length of the skull approximately 3.1 cm (cranial length) – measured from the top of the head to the alveolus (socket for the tusk) skull length is 5 cm approx.
  • Width of the skull approximately 2.4 cm (cranial width)
  • Width of the model across the hip region 5 cm approximately

The model is officially in 1:40 scale and those clever and very talented people at Eofauna Scientific Research know a great deal about proboscideans.  Many collectors like to group their model collections together, so we took some photographs of this new Steppe Mammoth model (M. trogontherii), next to one our favourite Mammoth models, the Papo Woolly Mammoth (M. primigenius) juvenile.  These images should also help with size estimations and scaling.

Once again, one of our trusty geology field rulers helps to provide size and scale information.

Superbly Detailed Steppe Mammoth Model

The dynamic pose of the Eofauna Scientific Research might make measuring tricky, but this is a small price to pay for such a beautifully crafted prehistoric animal replica.  We hope our photographs help to give collectors and prehistoric animal model fans a better impression of the size and scale of this superbly detailed Steppe Mammoth model.
