JurassicCollectables Reviews the Papo Cave Bear Model

Papo Cave Bear Video Review (JurassicCollectables)

The latest video review from JurassicCollectables has been posted up and it features the wonderful Papo Cave Bear model.  This replica is one of two prehistoric mammals being added to the Papo “Les Dinosaures” model range this year.  The Smilodon replica has been delayed, so for the time being we have this Ursus spelaeus figure to admire.  In this short video review, (it lasts just under three minutes), the narrator takes us on a tour of this beautifully painted Papo model.

It is great to see another prehistoric mammal added to the Papo range, especially after the retirement of the Woolly Rhino figure a couple of years ago and the recent news that the Papo baby Woolly Mammoth is going out of production*.   The JurassicCollectables video displays the quality of the paintwork and attention to detail on this model.  Thanks to “off-colour Alan” and a handy Tyrannosaurus rex, this video provides a good idea of the model’s size and scale.

The Distinct Sloping Forehead of U. spelaeus 

The narrator talks about the distinctive sloping forehead of Ursus spelaeus that helps to distinguish this model from more ubiquitous models of Brown Bears (Ursus arctos).  He also explains about some of the problems that can occur when trying to sculpt realistic looking fur on models of large mammals.

In this excellent video, the narrator comments on the beautifully sculpted feet and paw pads.  The dynamic pose is discussed and the position of the hind legs noted.

The JurassicCollectables YouTube channel has amassed well over 54,000 subscribers and has something like seven hundred dinosaur and prehistoric animal inspired videos.  We think this might be the first video review of a Cave Bear replica undertaken by the team at JurassicCollectables.

The Powerfully Built Cave Bear

Becoming extinct as recently as 24,000 years ago, the Cave Bear would have been known to the people of the Late Pleistocene.  It was a powerfully built animal, but not the largest bear that ever lived, a common misconception. True, a fully grown, male might have weighed as much as one tonne and when it reared up on its strong hind legs it could have stood more than 3.3 metres high, but the fossil remains of a South American Short-faced Bear (Arctotherium angustidens) indicate that this animal was much larger, weighing around 1.6 tonnes.
