PNSO Tuojiangosaurus

Those dedicated and enthusiastic people at PNSO have been very busy over the summer months.  We are beginning to see the fruits of their labour, as over the next few weeks or so we will be sharing news about new model releases from this exciting company.  Gaoyuan, the iridescent Microraptor model is already on its way to us, we are expecting our next shipment of PNSO prehistoric animals to arrive at our warehouse next month and today, (October 16th, 2020), we can officially announce that we will be stocking a Tuojiangosaurus model.

The Latest Stegosaur Figure to Join the PNSO Range

This Late Jurassic herbivore was the first stegosaur to be discovered in China, it is wonderful to have a Chinese model manufacturer introducing some replicas of iconic Chinese dinosaurs.  The exact taxonomic position of Tuojiangosaurus within the stegosaur family tree has been controversial, but most palaeontologists recognise it to be a member (somewhat derived), of the Stegosauridae, the family named after Stegosaurus, one of the most instantly recognisable dinosaurs of them all!

Introduced to Chinese distributors a few hours ago, Everything Dinosaur team members are happy to post up official pictures of this Chinese armoured dinosaur, a member of the Stegosauridae that was officially named and described in 1977, exactly 100 years after the American palaeontologist Othniel Charles Marsh erected the Stegosaurus genus.  The Morrison Formation of the western United States might have been home to Stegosaurus (as well as other types of armoured dinosaur, even basal ankylosaurs), but many academics believe that the Stegosauria clade originated in Asia.

Not the First Tuojiangosaurus Model

This is not the first Tuojiangosaurus figure that PNSO have produced.  Collectors may be aware of the PNSO Age of Dinosaurs Tuojiangosaurus model, which was one of the original figures in this series launched by the Chinese company.

The smaller figures tend to be more brightly coloured, whereas the mid-size models such as the new T. multispinus replica tend to have more muted colour schemes.
