Model Measurements

The Deinotherium replica measures around 20 centimetres in length and it stands around 13 centimetres high.  This beautifully detailed model has been developed based on analysis of actual fossil material and the Eofauna range of replicas is rapidly becoming a firm favourite amongst model and figure collectors.

The texture on the skin has been carefully crafted and the paint job is excellent, particularly the work on those downward pointing tusks which have a roughened  and weathered look to them.  The downward pointing tusks were used by these prehistoric elephants in a variety of ways.  The tusks probably served a variety of functions to assist with feeding.  For example, some palaeontologists suggest that the tusks were used to excavate tubers and roots.  Other scientists have proposed that the tusks were used to help to scrape bark from trees.  The curved tusks would have made very effective hooks to help Deinotherium pull at tree branches, from which they could strip the leaves.
