Everything Dinosaur Gets Exclusive Access to New Steppe Mammoth Model

By | August 21st, 2017|Dinosaur Fans, Educational Activities, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Press Releases|0 Comments

Everything Dinosaur will be Stocking Eofauna Steppe Mammoth Model

Everything Dinosaur will be stocking the new Eofauna Scientific Research 1:40 scale replica of a Steppe Mammoth (M. trogontherii).  The UK-based specialist supplier of dinosaur and prehistoric animal models has been granted exclusive access to this new figure for on-line sales for a British Isles-based company.  The beautifully sculpted PVC figure measures nineteen centimetres in length and shows some amazing detail.  Team members are currently working on the data sheet that will accompany sales of this model through Everything Dinosaur’s website.  As Eofauna Scientific Research is staffed by vertebrate fossil specialists and researchers too, this fantastic mammoth model will also be supplied with a hang tag and bonus collectable card to educate collectors about this geographically widespread, Middle Pleistocene proboscidean!

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“Working with the dedicated team at Eofauna Scientific Research has been a great experience.  They have done an amazing job producing what will be a highly sought after and collectable mammoth model.  It is an honour to be involved in the launch of this new, PVC model series and we can’t wait to see how this range of replicas develops.”

Mammuthus trogontherii – The Steppe Mammoth

The Steppe Mammoth (Mammuthus trogontherii) was one of the largest of all the proboscideans, with some fossil specimens indicating a bodyweight in excess of ten tonnes.  This mammoth was an evolutionary intermediary between the ancestral mammoth M. meridionalis and the better-known Woolly Mammoth (M. primigenius).  It evolved around 1,600,000 years ago and roamed much of the northern latitudes of Europe and Asia.  The elephant’s skull was shorter than those of its ancestors, this is skilfully depicted in the anatomically accurate 1:40 scale Eofauna replica and the teeth of Mammuthus trogontherii were adapted to feeding on tough grasses and sedges – check out the superbly painted upper molars that are visible in the open mouth of the model!

Coming Soon to Everything Dinosaur!

The First of a New Range of Prehistoric Animal Models

This is the first of an exciting range of PVC models, the range is being introduced with the aim of giving fans of prehistoric animals and model collectors the opportunity to build up a collection of highly accurate, museum quality figures.

General Director of Eofauna Scientific Research, Asier Larramendi explained:

“All our work is based on scientific research.  Several members of Eofauna, including myself, are scientists and our aim is to use our considerable knowledge and expertise to develop an exciting range of figures that really do reflect the fossil record.  It is fantastic for us to be teaming up with such a well-respected company such as Everything Dinosaur, who like us, share a passion for palaeontology and helping to educate the next generation of scientists.”

If the 1:40 scale Steppe Mammoth is anything to go by, then collectors and prehistoric animal fans are going to be roaring with excitement as this new range is rolled out.  Just wait until you see the dinosaurs….

Everything Dinosaur Stocks PNSO Age of Dinosaurs

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“The PNSO product range aims to inform and to educate and contains a huge variety of prehistoric animal models, both big and small.  It is wonderful to see replicas of some of the amazing dinosaurs from China incorporated into this product range and it’s not just dinosaurs too, there are Ichthyosaur models such as Himalayasaurus to collect and even a Confuciusornis!”

A Cretaceous Bird Named after a Chinese Philosopher

Many Confuciusornis fossils have been found in the Liaoning Province (north-eastern China) and fossils of these early birds (they belong to a group called the Enantiornithines), have helped palaeontologists to work out how Maniraptoran feathered dinosaurs evolved into birds.  We are sure that the great Chinese philosopher and teacher Confucius would have approved of these prehistoric animal replicas, helping to inform and educate about China’s remarkable fossil record.  Male birds were slightly different from the females, just like many extant species of birds today.  The males had a pair of long tail feathers, the females lacked these adornments.  The PNSO Dinosaurs of China Confuciusornis model is therefore a male bird.  The long tail feathers played no role in powered flight, they probably were used in visual displays as the males attempted to attract a mate.

Marine Monsters and Museum Quality Dinosaur Replicas

As well as family favourites such as Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus rex, the larger models include spectacular models of sea monsters.  There is a serpentine Basilosaurus replica, that at around half a metre in length, makes a brilliant centrepiece to any model collection.  We must also mention the fantastic Megalodon (C. megalodon) replica, the detail on this giant shark figure is stunning.

The nautical theme continues with the introduction of the CollectA mini prehistoric marine animals, a set of twelve replicas representing some of the amazing marine fauna that once existed in the seas and oceans of our planet.  What fantastic news for model makers and fans of prehistoric dioramas.  For example, a trilobite can be added to a marine model scene that features Dunkleosteus, or Mosasaurus can be chasing ammonites in a Cretaceous model diorama!

Dimorphodon, Uintatherium, Basilosaurus and Mini Prehistoric Marine Animals Arrive

The final batch of new for 2017, CollectA prehistoric animal models has arrived and what a splendid collection they are!  CollectA had introduced their new dinosaurs earlier in the year, so this final set of 2017 models does not contain any “terrible lizards”, just a group of well-crafted models that are going to delight collectors.

CollectA Dimorphodon with Movable Jaw

It is great to see CollectA introducing another replica of a large Pterosaur into their “Deluxe” range.  The Dimorphodon will sit proudly next to the Guidraco figure, a model that was introduced back in 2015, to much acclaim.  Everything Dinosaur team members have been in discussion with leading expert on the Pterosauria Mark Witton recently, like Mark, we think that this Early Jurassic flying reptile may well have lived in an arboreal environment and not on the coast as depicted in many illustrations.  The team at CollectA, think this was the case also, as they chose to illustrate their new CollectA Dimorphodon in a terrestrial setting.

The CollectA Deluxe Uintatherium

The CollectA Deluxe Uintatherium model is one of our favourite replicas to be released this year.  We have followed the development of this prehistoric mammal figure very closely.  Although, Uintatherium was one of the largest land animals of the Eocene Epoch and is well represented in the fossil record of North America, very few replicas of Uintatheres have been produced.  Measuring a fraction under nineteen centimetres long, this is an excellent 1:20 scale model of “Uintah Beast”.

CollectA Basilosaurus

Fans of the “Walking with Beasts” television series have waited a long time for a model of the giant, toothed whale Basilosaurus and CollectA have certainly delivered with this thirty-six-centimetre long model, complete with colonies of barnacles on its skin.

Although this model is much bigger than many of the replicas in the CollectA Deluxe scale model series, it is not actually part of that model range.  The size of the model, merely reflecting the actual size of this early whale.  Males may have reached lengths in excess of eighteen metres (females were slightly smaller), based on these measurements, we estimate that the CollectA Basilosaurus is around 1:50 scale.

CollectA Box of Mini Prehistoric Marine Animals

Model makers and diorama builders are in for a real treat with the addition of the set of mini prehistoric marine animals from CollectA.  The set of twelve figures, ranging from a trilobite, ammonites, prehistoric fish and marine reptiles, are ideal for use in prehistoric landscapes, adding variety and colour to any marine diorama.  Our personal favourite is the replica of the Late Cretaceous sea turtle Archelon, but look out also for the Leedsichthys and the Xiphactinus.

Dinosaurs of China Exhibition Starts Today

By | July 1st, 2017|Dinosaur and Prehistoric Animal News Stories, Dinosaur Fans, Main Page, Press Releases|0 Comments

Dinosaurs of China Exhibition Opens

Six years in the planning, but finally the great day has arrived!  “Dinosaurs of China – Ground Shakers to Feathered Flyers” opens today, a once in a lifetime opportunity to get up close to some of the most remarkable, amazing and significant dinosaur fossils ever found.  Based in the beautiful Wollaton Hall, (Nottingham), with a complementary exhibit located at the nearby Lakeside Arts Centre, this not-to-be-missed exhibition runs from today until October 29th.

Evolution – Challenging Perceptions

This cleverly constructed exhibition features a total of twenty-six prehistoric species, plus a wealth of other exhibits and artefacts that tells the story of how one group of dinosaurs – the Maniraptora, evolved into the birds that live alongside us today.  There are lots of helpful information panels to help guide visitors and look out for the astonishing artwork that accompanies the fossils created by the famous Chinese palaeoartist Zhao Chuang.  Dr Adam Smith (Nottingham Natural History Museum and Exhibition Curator) and his team have skilfully contributed to the informative story-telling aspect of the exhibition by including a selection of fossils and other objects from the Nottingham Natural History Museum’s own collection – no mean feat in itself, as the museum is one of the largest dedicated natural history museums in the UK with over 750,000 items, including some 40,000 fossils.

With a lifelong passion for palaeontology, television presenter Chris Packham commented that he felt like “a kid in a sweet shop”.  For Chris, ground shakers such as the huge Mamenchisaurus skeleton, the tallest dinosaur exhibit ever seen in the UK, are simply awesome, but the real jaw-dropping moments are when you can get to see some of the exquisitely preserved fossils of feathered dinosaurs.  These remarkable fossils, most of which are more than 100 million-years-old, provide the “smoking gun”, as Chris so elegantly phrased it, linking the birds to the Dinosauria.

Discovery – A History of Chinese Palaeontology

It is a case of “East meets West” with the Dinosaurs of China exhibition.  Some 250 different types of dinosaur have been named from Chinese fossils and several important specimens are on display, such as Lufengosaurus, the first dinosaur from China to be scientifically described.  One of the key themes of the Dinosaurs of China exhibition is to tell the story of Chinese palaeontology.  Thanks to the dedicated efforts of institutions such as the Beijing-based, Institute of Vertebrate Palaeontology and Palaeoanthropology (IVPP), a partner in this Anglo-Chinese joint-venture, visitors will be able to learn how our knowledge of prehistoric animals has been enriched thanks to amazing Chinese fossil discoveries.

Lufengosaurus – Early Jurassic Herbivore

Several of the specimens featured are relatives of much better-known dinosaurs from North America.  American dinosaurs such as Triceratops may have a bigger profile with the general public  than their Asian ancestor Protoceratops, but to a palaeontologist, it is “first horned face” from Mongolia, that is the by far the most significant in terms of the amount of fossil material to study.  Protoceratops is the favourite dinosaur amongst Everything Dinosaur team members and it’s great to see it included as part of this most enjoyable exhibition.

A Journey Through Time

Parents of young dinosaur fans will, no doubt, be informed that the majority of dinosaurs found on the ground floor date from the Jurassic.  In contrast, the exhibits found on the first floor feature Cretaceous prehistoric animals.  The displays have been carefully laid out so that the visitor is taken on a journey through geological time.  There is a transition from the Jurassic through to the Cretaceous, this helps to reinforce the idea that dinosaurs evolved into a myriad of different forms.  Check out the amazing Microraptor specimen and visitors will learn that this four-winged reptile was not the only flying dinosaur.  Take for example, the most recently described animal in the exhibition, the bizarre Yi qi (pronounced ee-chee), which was named just two years ago.  The three-dimensional replica on display preserves astonishing detail about this little Theropod.  The pigeon-sized Yi qi had downy feathers like a young bird, but wings that resembled those of a bat.  It probably was an accomplished glider.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur stated:

“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see fossils that have never been outside of Asia before.  “Ground Shakers to Feathered Flyers”, simply cannot be missed and it’s a real feather in Nottingham’s cap to be able to host such a prestigious exhibition.”

Mojo ” Prehistoric and Extinct” Models Available from Everything Dinosaur

Everything Dinosaur has added the Mojo “Prehistoric and Extinct” model range to its portfolio of prehistoric animal models.  All thirty-one of the current range of figures is now stocked by Everything Dinosaur, everything from Ankylosaurus to the Young Tyrannosaurus rex and every model in between.

Dinosaur Models

The current range includes all the popular dinosaurs.  There are Brachiosaurus models, Stegosaurs, Velociraptors and of course several different models of T. rex including a 1:40 scale replica and a new for 2017, pair of hunting “Tyrant Lizard Kings”.  You have a choice, do you prefer the green hunting T. rex or the fiery red version?

For fans of Theropods, along with the T. rex replicas and three different Velociraptor models to collect, there is also a new for 2017 Allosaurus model too.  All of the models are suitable for children from three years of age and they are all hand-painted.

Not Just Dinosaurs but Prehistoric Mammals as Well

One of the great things about the Mojo “Prehistoric and Extinct” model range is that it features lots of other types of extinct animal as well as dinosaurs.  For example, the current range also includes a Deinotherium, Sabre-Tooth Cat, an Entelodont (Daeodon), the vicious Hyaenodon gigas, two Woolly Mammoth replicas and a wonderful Brontothere (Brontotherium).  We at Everything Dinosaur accept that Brontotherium is a junior synonym of Megacerops, but that did not stop us writing a fact sheet about this “Thunder Beast”!  In fact, all of the Mojo models sent out by Everything Dinosaur are despatched with a fact sheet about the animal, written and researched by our own team members.

Recently Extinct Creatures Too

Everything Dinosaur has also brought in models representing animals that have only recently been declared extinct*.  Within the Mojo range there is a model of the Quagga, a recently extinct sub-species of Plains Zebra from southern Africa.  There is also an excellent Thylacine replica for fans to collect.

* There is an ongoing selective breeding programme to breed back Quagga traits in a herd of zebra, subsequent generations have produced animals with more Quagga-like colouration.

* Scientists in Australia are currently setting camera traps in a bid to capture evidence of a small living population of Thylacines.  The “Tasmanian Wolf” may not be extinct, some fragmented populations may still exist in the more remote parts of Australia, especially on the island of Tasmania.

These two figures certainly don’t look out of place amongst all the Mojo dinosaur models.
