Two New Dinosaur Figures

Safari Ltd may have reduced the number of new prehistoric animal models they have introduced this year compared to 2020, (nine prehistoric animal models were introduced in 2020), but there is no denying the quality of these new additions. Each model is beautifully painted and reflect the very latest scientific thinking. It is wonderful to see a new model of a tyrannosaur introduced into a product range, a refreshing change from the ubiquitous T. rex models.

The Spinosaurus Tail

Last year (2020), a team of international scientists including researchers from the University of Portsmouth, the University of Detroit Mercy and Leicester University published a paper in the journal “Nature” that concluded that Spinosaurus was indeed an aquatic dinosaur. A review of fossil tail bones (caudal vertebrae), revealed that it had a wide and flexible tail which was very fin-like. The tail of Spinosaurus was well adapted to propelling this huge predator through the water. The design team at Safari Ltd have worked hard to incorporate this research into their model. The tail of the Wild Safari Prehistoric World Spinosaurus, is broad and accounts for around half the model’s entire length. It seems ideally suited to propelling this dinosaur through the rivers and lakes of early Late Cretaceous North Africa.
