Checking Models Over Prior To Despatch

Stocks of this 1:40 scale model arrived around noon (BST) and prior to sending out orders, our dedicated team members inspected the models just to ensure that everyone had an appropriate data card and that the replicas were in tip-top condition.  The first orders were packed and sent on their way within two hours.  As well as the data card, Everything Dinosaur is sending out a fact sheet on the Steppe Mammoth with every model purchased.

This exciting Elephantidae replica, yes, Mammoths are members of the elephant family, (though they are more closely related to extant Asian elephants than they are to living African elephants), is the first in a new model series from Eofauna Scientific Research.  Collectors can expect more prehistoric mammal models as well as some amazing dinosaur models in the future.

Steppe Mammoth (Mammuthus trogontherii)

Mammuthus trogontherii was one of the largest members of the elephant family to have existed.  A fully grown adult male could weigh as much as fourteen tonnes and measure 4.5 metres high at the shoulder.  These elephants were probably cold adapted and gave rise to the much smaller, but better known Woolly Mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius).  The very last of the Steppe Mammoths are believed to have died out around 30,000 years ago.

The Eofauna Steppe Mammoth model is based on a Steppe Mammoth specimen studied by Eofauna company members in northern China.  The bones of this specimen were then scaled up to equate to the remains of the largest individual known (a specimen from Mosbach, Baden-Württemberg in south-west Germany).  The head is modelled on the only complete skull known of this species, which was discovered in Novosibirsk, Russia.  A prototype model was created initially and from this the production model came about.  Collectors and model fans can be assured that the Eofauna Scientific Research Steppe Mammoth is a highly accurate replica, one that was subjected to rigorous testing by researchers who really know their elephants.
