Team members at Everything Dinosaur review the Rebor Saurophaganax maximus “Notorious Big” dinosaur model in the “jungle” colour scheme. Three colour variants of this Late Jurassic apex predator have been introduced, “Badlands” was highlighted in an earlier blog post: Rebor Saurophaganax “Badlands”, we intend to showcase the crimson-coloured “volcanic cavern” in the near future but today, we focus on the “jungle” colour variant.

An Articulated Dinosaur Model

The Saurophaganax figure measures 41.5 cm long and it is articulated, with a flexible tail, moveable forelimbs and an articulated lower jaw so the model can be posed either mouth open or mouth closed. Of the three figures introduced, the “jungle” colouration is perhaps the most realistic colour scheme, after all, Saurophaganax fossils are associated with the famous Morrison Formation of the United States and these strata represent deposits laid down in a lush, verdant floodplain environment.

The Rebor Saurophaganax maximus dinosaur model has a declared scale of 1:35.

Conifers dominated the riparian* environment along with cycads, horsetails, tree ferns and ginkgo trees. As these tend to be predominately shades of green, a green coloured theropod would have been well camouflaged amongst the vegetation.

The colouration of the Rebor Saurophaganax model is predominately green with yellow countershading. Prominent stripes can be seen on the broad, deep tail.

A riparian* environment is a terrestrial zone that lies between the land and a river or stream. It describes the ecosystem (plant habitats and animal communities) that inhabit river margins and the banks of streams. The Morrison Formation deposits were laid down in floodplains and riparian zones. Several theropod dinosaurs have been described from fossils found in these strata, Saurophaganax (S. maximus) is one of the largest described to date.
