The Beasts of the Mesozoic Triceratops (sub-adult) Model

We have received some requests to post up more photographs of the popular Beasts of the Mesozoic sub-adult Triceratops dinosaur model.  Our team members are always willing to oblige so we produced a short blog post that features some more pictures of the Beasts of the Mesozoic Triceratops horridus.

This one of the largest of the first wave of ceratopsian models created, this is appropriate as T. horridus is regarded as one of the biggest of all the horned dinosaurs described to date.

In 1/18th Scale

A replica of one of the most popular of all the dinosaurs, the Beasts of the Mesozoic Triceratops is a very colourful figure with twenty points of articulation.  Measuring a fraction under 27 cm in length it is also one of the largest of the first wave of ceratopsian figures created by this company, even though the figure represents a sub-adult.  The model has a declared scale of 1:18 and it represents a dinosaur that lived towards the very end of the Cretaceous.  Palaeontologists have estimated that the temporal range of Triceratops horridus was from 66.8 to 66.4 million years ago (Maastrichtian faunal stage of the Late Cretaceous).  It was superseded by Triceratops prorsus which it is believed it was an ancestor of.  Hell Creek Formation fossils also suggest an as yet, unnamed intermediate species between T. horridus and the younger T. prorsus.
