Eofauna Scientific Research Deinotherium Model Due October 2019

The second, new for 2019 Eofauna prehistoric animal figure has been announced.  A replica of the huge, prehistoric elephant Deinotherium (D. giganteum) is being added to this exciting range.  The model will be available in the autumn, probably in October, a short while before the Atlasaurus figure, which was announced a few days earlier.

The “Famous Five”

With the addition of the Atlasaurus and the Deinotherium, this brings the total of Eofauna Scientific Figures to five.  Eofauna Scientific Research is staffed by researchers, creatives and specialists with a focus on prehistoric fauna.  The company has demonstrated expertise in the study of ancient members of the Order Proboscidea (elephants and their relatives), three of the five models produced so far are prehistoric elephants.   The D. giganteum figure will be joining a Straight-tusked elephant (Palaeloxodon antiquus) and the first of this range to be introduced, a Steppe mammoth (Mammuthus trogontherii).

A Fact Card will be Supplied with the New for Autumn 2019 Eofauna Scientific Research Deinotherium Model

Deinotherium giganteum

Deinotherium fossils are known from Africa, Europe and parts of Asia.  It was not closely related to extant elephants or the Mammuthus genus.  The Eofauna model shows the long legs and long, low skull associated with this genus.  It is believed Deinotherium became extinct around 2.5 million years ago.

Everything Dinosaur has opened a priority reservation list for this figure, which should be in stock in October.  To join our no obligation, priority reserve list for the Eofauna Scientific Research Deinotherium, just drop us an email: Email Everything Dinosaur.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“We are delighted to announce that this figure will be in stock at Everything Dinosaur during the autumn.  We should have stocks of this new exciting prehistoric elephant figure and the sauropod Atlasaurus in plenty of time to ensure a happy Christmas for collectors of Eofauna models.”

Deinotherium Model Measurements – Tale of the Tape

The new Eofauna Deinotherium model has a stated scale of 1:35.  The model measures around 20 centimetres in length and stands and impressive 13 cm high.  Observant model collectors will note that this new figure is depicted on the move.  Elephants do not have the gaits associated with faster moving, large mammals such as the trot and the gallop.  Instead, when an elephant moves slowly, its limbs remain relatively straight and column-like.   Locomotion studies have shown that when moving quickly, the limbs become more mobile and flexible acting like “pogo sticks”,  helping the animal to maintain velocity.  Even when moving at full speed, the four feet of the elephant do not leave the ground simultaneously, as opposed to the limbs of a horse when galloping.
