New PNSO Spinosaurus Model

Everything Dinosaur in collaboration with PNSO announce the addition of a mid-sized Spinosaurus replica to the PNSO model range.  Say hello to Essien the Spinosaurus, the latest addition to this exciting range of dinosaur and prehistoric animal replicas.  This beautiful dinosaur model incorporates a lot of the anatomical details from recently published scientific papers and the replica has been given an articulated lower jaw!

Not to be confused with the 1:35 scale “Essien” the Spinosaurus figure, part of the “Scientific Art” range from PNSO, this new figure has been based on some of the very latest thinking concerning this huge North African theropod.  For example, it has been given a much thicker, wider fin-like tail in line with a paper published in May (2020): Spinosaurus the River Monster.  In addition, it is portrayed as a “knuckle-walker” and the proportions of the model’s limbs definitely indicate that this dinosaur was quadrupedal.

PNSO Spinosaurus Dinosaur Model Measurements

The new mid-size PNSO Spinosaurus measures around twenty-three centimetres in length, it would be longer but the tip of the tail of the model is curled round.  That spectacular sail stands nearly ten centimetres tall.  Size estimates for Spinosaurus aegyptiacus vary considerably.  Size ranges of between twelve and eighteen metres have been proposed.  If you take the size estimate put forward by acclaimed dinosaur expert and author Gregory S. Paul at fourteen metres, this indicates that the new PNSO Spinosaurus replica would be in approximately 1:60 scale.  If required, this new mid-size model, which is approximately half the size of the PNSO “Scientific Art” figure could represent a sub-adult specimen.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“The Spinosaurus will be shipped to Everything Dinosaur’s warehouse along with the recently announced Pachyrhinosaurus, Borealopelta, Atopodentatus, Corythosaurus, Lambeosaurus and Tuojiangosaurus figures.   These models might be in stock just before Christmas, but in all likelihood these figures will be available in the New Year.”
