PNSO will add a 1:35 scale model of a Kronosaurus to their scientific art range of figures. The marine reptile figure entitled Jeff the Kronosaurus will be in stock at Everything Dinosaur later in the summer (2021).
Two Distinctive Kronosaurus Species
This monstrous short-necked pliosaur measured around ten metres in length. It was a fearsome, apex predator of Early Cretaceous seas (Aptian to Albian faunal stages of the Early Cretaceous) and two species have been named. Kronosaurus queenslandicus was formally named and described in 1924 and this Australian species was joined by Kronosaurus boyacensis from Columbia which was named in 1992.
Colouration of a Killer Whale
The new for 2021 Jeff the Kronosaurus model has a dark topside and a contrasting lighter, almost white shading underneath. Like extant Orcas (Orcinius orca), this colouration would help to break-up this predator’s outline in the water. The lighter underside would have been difficult to spot when viewed from below against a sunlit water surface. The dark markings on the top of the body, would have camouflaged Kronosaurus and made it difficult to pick out from the murky depths when viewed from above in the water column. The colouration of Kronosaurus is unknown, but team members at Everything Dinosaur recognise that the design team at PNSO have been influenced by living marine animals when it came to Jeff’s colouration.
Kronosaurus Model Measurements
The Kronosaurus model measures 24.6 cm in length and it is 13.1 cm wide across the rear flippers. Although the figure is stated as being in 1:35 scale, based on these measurements, the PNSO model represents and animal around 8.6 metres in length.
In Stock at Everything Dinosaur in the Summer of 2021
A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented that PNSO intended to bring out a lot of prehistoric animal figures in 2021. Jeff the Kronosaurus will likely be in stock at Everything Dinosaur in the summer.
This new PNSO figure joins Levy the Eurhinosaurus and Paulwin the Dakosaurus marine reptile figures that were introduced by PNSO in 2019. As with the Dakosaurus figure, Jeff the PNSO Kronosaurus has an articulated jaw.
Expected to be in stock at Everything Dinosaur in the summer of 2021, Jeff the Kronosaurus marine reptile model is a fantastic addition to the PNSO model range. To view the PNSO models and figures available from Everything Dinosaur: PNSO Age of Dinosaurs.
