New Look for Everything Dinosaur Website

Regular visitors to Everything Dinosaur’s main website (Everything Dinosaur), will notice some subtle changes to the theme and the website’s framework.  Customers can still expect our award winning 5-star service, that has not changed, nor have we reduced the range of dinosaur and prehistoric themed products that we stock, however, our use of sliders and animation has been reduced to help maintain fast page load times when our site is viewed on mobiles and other devices.

Constantly Working to Improve our Customer’s On Site Experience

Team members at Everything Dinosaur are constantly working to improve and enhance the experience visitors and customers have when they visit our websites.  Making such improvements are part of a long-term and on-going programme of investment to help this UK-based company stay ahead of the curve when it comes to technical developments.  After all, with our knowledge of the Dinosauria, we don’t want Everything Dinosaur going extinct!

The changes we have made will have no bearing on how the site is viewed.  It will have no impact on the site pages, all the customer benefits are retained, the changes just permit those visitors using mobiles and other devices (not viewing the site from a personal computer), to have slightly quicker load times, for the pages that they wish to view or the landing pages that they are directed to.

The Front Page Will Still Inform Customers About New Products and New Models

Website Functionality

The functionality of the website will not be affected by these changes.  The front page of our website will continue to inform visitors about new arrivals/new products and the Feefo ratings along with the chat live options will continue to be prominently displayed.  The “contact us” email link will still be accessible, but in the near future another, additional “contact us” link will be provided nearer the top of the page, just for customer convenience.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“These changes are part of an on-going process to reflect changes in technology and the preferences of customers.  We continue to monitor the performance of our various websites on a daily basis and to adjust them so that we can continue to meet the needs of our ever-growing and international customer base.  The first slides we have put up on Everything Dinosaur’s home page support our work with Eofauna Scientific Research and Kaiyodo.  These slides also give us the opportunity to promote our very popular dinosaur and fossil workshops in schools.  We now have greater flexibility in the sort of slides and other visuals that we can use to keep our website refreshed and up to date.”

A Programme of Further Investment

Just like when writing a scientific paper or report, the work done so far is part of a continuing process.  As with science, things move on and the Everything Dinosaur websites are constantly being reviewed and updated to meet the changing needs of the market place.

Preparing for Prestosuchus

Everything Dinosaur team members are preparing for the arrival of some of the new for 2019 Wild Safari Prehistoric World models including the Prestosuchus replica.  The beautiful Prestosuchus figure is just one of a number of new Wild Safari Prehistoric World figures that Everything Dinosaur hopes to stock before Christmas.

A Formidable Predator of the Middle Triassic of Brazil

Prestosuchus (P. chiniquensis) was not a dinosaur, but a member of the Archosauria, just like the dinosaurs, but from a lineage that is more closely related to modern crocodilians than to living birds and extinct dinosaurs.  Fossils of this large predator have been found in south-eastern Brazil from strata that date from the Middle Triassic.  Prestosuchus was named by the German palaeontologist Friedrich von Huene in 1942, the genus name honours Brazilian self-taught palaeontologist Vicentino Prestes de Almeida and the trivial name honours the town where Vicentino Prestes de Almeida was born (Chiniquá, Rio Grande do Sul).

Producing a Scale Drawing

It had been thought that this animal measured around 5 metres in length, about the size of a Nile Crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus), however, a specimen described in 2010 indicated that this quadruped may have reached lengths of around 7 metres and it might have weighed 1,000 kilograms or more.  Everything Dinosaur team members have had to examine a number of scientific papers in order to produce a scale drawing for use in their Prestosuchus fact sheet.  This fact sheet will be sent out with purchases of the Prestosuchus model.
