Everything Dinosaur’s Instagram username for our site is entitled @everythingdinosaur1 and we will be posting up various images and videos and looking up all our thousands of Facebook chums.  In addition, team members are looking forward to liking and commenting on all the amazing dinosaur and prehistoric animal images that have already been posted up onto the platform.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“We had been planning to get ourselves on the Instagram platform for quite a while, however, our work commitments, teaching and other projects kept getting in the way.  Just before we run into our Christmas sales period and the teaching programme becomes very congested, we thought that this month was a good time to launch our presence on this social media networking site.”

Kaiyodo Sofubi Toy Box T. rex Figures in Stock

The amazing and highly collectable Kaiyodo Sofubi Toy Box T. rex figures are in stock at Everything Dinosaur.  A shipment of all three versions of this articulated Tyrannosaurus rex figure has arrived at Everything Dinosaur’s warehouse and team members have been busy alerting all those customers who wanted to be placed on the company’s priority reserve list and emailed when the models arrived.

All Three Versions of the  Kaiyodo Sofubi Toy Box T. rex Figures

Special Edition Articulated Replicas

The Japanese company Kaiyodo has built a strong reputation for high quality, innovative figures and models, some of which, like these T. rex replicas are articulated.  Kaiyodo models are ideal for serious model collectors and enthusiastic dinosaur fans, the trio of T. rex figures represent a collection of hand-painted and individually sculpted prehistoric animal and extinct creatures.  Many of the Kaiyodo prehistoric animals are special edition replicas with a limited production run.

Ten Points of Articulation

Each figure has ten points of articulation, allowing the T. rex to be put in a variety of poses.  These are the first collectable tyrannosaurid figures to have ten points of articulation, permitting them to be displayed in numerous positions.  For example, we have been informed by some customers keen to get their hands on these dinosaurs that they want to buy a pair, so that one can be displayed in the classic “kangaroo pose” with the tail on the ground, whilst the other figure can be displayed in a more modern, anatomically correct position.

018A, 018B and 018C Tyrannosaurs

The models have an age restriction upon them, they are collectable figures and therefore not suitable for persons under 15 years of age.  Kaiyodo is famous for its novel and quirky designs, even the product designations of 018A, 018B and 018C are unusual.  The classic figure (018C), comes in a presentation box with a clear plastic front so that the model can be seen inside the packaging.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“We are delighted to welcome these Kaiyodo figures into our product portfolio, they have proved very difficult to get hold of and we know that there has been a limited quantity made, so it is very satisfying to be able to offer all three of these articulated collectable dinosaur figures to our customers.”

Crystal Palace Statues Helping to Change Perceptions

By | September 8th, 2018|Dinosaur and Prehistoric Animal News Stories, Dinosaur Fans, Educational Activities, Everything Dinosaur News and Updates, Press Releases, Teaching|1 Comment

Crystal Palace Statues Helping with Outdoor Learning

Recently, Everything Dinosaur has been providing advice on how best to utilise the outdoor resources at the famous Crystal Palace Park in south London.  Schools have been invited to make the most of this area, with its historic “dinosaur statues”.  Outdoor learning is being encouraged and the park with its hard and soft landscaping as well as its iconic prehistoric animal figures makes a fantastic open space for creative activities linked to the English national curriculum.

Prehistoric Animal Figures Not Just Dinosaurs

In reality, dinosaurs make up only a small proportion of the more than thirty statues on display.  The figures created by Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins with scientific input from the soon to be knighted Sir Richard Owen, who went onto to help found the London Natural History Museum, include marine reptiles, crocodilians, turtles and extinct mammals.  They were erected in the middle of the 19th Century (circa 1854) and they represent the first attempt to create life-size, dinosaur figures.  However, our view of the Dinosauria has evolved somewhat since the 1850’s and the dinosaurs, depicted as four-footed, tail-dragging scaly lizards, is wildly inaccurate by today’s standards.

Grade 1 Historic Monuments

All the figures are listed on Historic England’s “National Heritage List for England” as Grade 1 monuments.  This listing recognises the historic importance of these statues and a lot has been done to help preserve the dinosaurs and other figures as part of our country’s scientific and historical heritage.

In our advisory work, team members have suggested ways in which our changing views about the Dinosauria can be incorporated into the teaching programme.  The dinosaurs represented by the figures, the first three genera to be incorporated within the order Dinosauria, Megalosaurus, Hylaeosaurus and Iguanodon, show how our interpretation of the fossil record has changed over the last 170 years or so.  The statues provide a three-dimensional testament to how scientific ideas evolve and change in the light of new evidence.

The Devastating Fire at Brazil’s National Museum

By | September 4th, 2018|Dinosaur and Prehistoric Animal News Stories, Dinosaur Fans, Main Page, Photos/Pictures of Fossils, Press Releases|0 Comments

Terrible Blow to the Fossil Heritage of South America

The scientific community is beginning to come to terms with the devastating fire that took place last Sunday night (2nd September), that left the historic Museu Nacional located in Rio de Janeiro a gutted ruin.  The fire tore through the museum, Brazil’s oldest scientific institution (founded in 1818), media reports state that much of the collection, some 20 million items of cultural and scientific interest have been destroyed.  The extent of the loss has yet to be confirmed but it is likely that the majority of the artefacts housed in the building have been lost, or damaged beyond repair.

The Impact of the Fire on the Fossil Collection and Palaeontology

Many of the invertebrate specimens and smaller vertebrate fossils were housed in metal cabinets. These cabinets may have survived the fire but the condition of the fossils inside remains unknown. The palaeontology exhibits section of the museum was utterly destroyed as confirmed by aerial views of the museum building taken yesterday.  Fortunately, as Everything Dinosaur understands the situation, a significant proportion of the fish and reptile collections were housed in a separate building and have not been affected by the fire.  However, it is likely that many of the unique dinosaur, pterosaur and other prehistoric animal fossils documenting the ancient fauna of South America have been lost to science.

Much of the vertebrate fossil collection was excavated from Cretaceous-aged deposits from the Araripe Basin of Brazil, notably from the Crato Formation which dates from the Early Cretaceous. It is likely that many fossils of dinosaurs and pterosaurs including many holotypes will have been lost as a result of this tragic fire.

One Likely Casualty the Holotype of the Spinosaurid Oxalaia quilombensis

Whilst it is noted, that thankfully, no-one was injured during the fire, this tragedy has resulted in the likely loss of thousands of irreplaceable specimens and artefacts, as well as the research notes, papers, reports and other documents of numerous scientists.  The laboratories and preparation areas will have been extensively damaged, this is a real blow for the scientific community of Brazil and their colleagues and counterparts throughout the world.

The Crato Formation is famous for its dinosaur and pterosaur fossils, but in addition, more than three hundred types of insect have been identified, both aquatic and terrestrial species and even magnificent aerial hunters like dragonflies.

The Impact on the Pterosauria

The Museu Nacional housed a number of holotype specimens of Pterosaurs.  Several genera of flying reptiles are only known from the Crato Formation of north-eastern Brazil and their fossils were part of the vertebrate palaeontology collection of the museum.  Pterosaur fossils are exceptionally rare and virtually all of the fossil material associated with these genera was stored in the Rio de Janeiro museum.  Potential losses include the holotype of Tapejara wellnhoferi, plus other tapejarid postcranial material including wing impressions, the holotype of Tupuxuara longicristatus, a braincase associated with Anhanguera, plus a holotype associated with Nyctosaurus lamegoi.

The Impact on Pterosaur Research May Be Particularly Severe

Examples of pterosaurs from the Museum Nacional collection.

A number of pterosaurs that model collectors will be familiar with have been affected by the fire.  Fossils related to these well-known flying reptiles are believed to have been destroyed in the fire.

The President of Brazil Michael Temer has described the loss of the exhibits, specimens and artefacts as “incalculable to Brazil”.  The devastating fire and the subsequent loss of so many items in what was one of South America’s largest natural history collections, made last Sunday, a sad day for the whole of science.

Kaiyodo Dinosaurs

Back in June, Everything Dinosaur sent a newsletter to the company’s subscribers hinting that these models would be available from the UK-based specialist dinosaur model supplier.  Subscribers were given the opportunity to register their interest and to reserve a figure.  The response has been overwhelming, very few of these models have been produced and they are very difficult to obtain outside of Japan, but these models are shortly to be going on sale at Everything Dinosaur.

For further information on these T. rex collectables and to enquire about reserving a figure email: Contact Everything Dinosaur about Kaiyodo Dinosaurs

Rare Collectables

The three T. rex colour variants are T. rex A, T. rex B (smoke green) and the T. rex (classic image colour).  These are rare collectables and difficult to obtain outside of Japan.  Production of these models has been limited and Everything Dinosaur has been able to acquire stocks of all three of these fantastic figures.  Each model measures approximately 29 centimetres in length and they have ten points of articulation.  The articulated joints are neck, upper jaw, ankles, forelimbs, the base of the tail (proximal end) and the end of the tail (distal).  All the figures have been carefully painted and beautifully designed and engineered.

These models are limited edition collectables and they will have an age restriction on them 15+ (a collectable prehistoric animal figure).

Prices 

The T. rex (A) and the T. rex (B) – smoke green will be priced at £32.99 plus post and packing.  Whilst the rarer, classic colour Sofubi Toy Box T. rex figure will be priced at £37.99 plus P&P.  A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur did state that it was likely that all three models would be offered to collectors together as a special offer.  The company has offered similar purchasing opportunities in the past, for example, customers were recently given the opportunity to purchase all three Rebor “War Pig” Ankylosaurus magniventris models together at a special discount.

Prices correct as of September 2018.

Archaeologists Battle Tides to Save Ancient Handprints

By | July 28th, 2018|Main Page, Press Releases|0 Comments

Archaeologists in Race Against Time to Save Ancient Handprints

A team of archaeologists are in a race against time to save ancient handprints on the Island of Rousay.  The archaeologists are battling against the tide to complete the documentation and excavation of the remains of a Pictish copper smith’s workshop located on an Iron Age settlement on Rousay.  The site, an important archaeological focus on the Orkney Islands, has revealed a sooty imprint of what is believed to be the smith’s hands and knees.  The archaeologists could have uncovered evidence of a person’s everyday activity, which could potentially be 1500 years old.

The Stone Preserves Evidence of Human Activity (Carbon Smudges)

Dr Stephen Dockrill, Senior Lecturer in Archaeology at the University of Bradford commented:

“Analysis of crucible fragments and the floor deposits demonstrated that a copper smith worked in the building.  The analysis of the floor enables us to say with confidence where the smith worked, next to a hearth and two stone anvils.  The biggest surprise came when we lifted the larger stone anvil and cleaned it; we could see carbon imprints of the smith’s knees and hands.”

An Amazing and Extremely Exciting Scottish Discovery

Senior Lecturer in Archaeology, Dr Julie Bond (University of Bradford), outlined the significance of this chance discovery stating:

“This is an extremely exciting find and we are doing all we can to gather as much information on the site before it is destroyed by the sea.  A handprint is so personal and individual that you can almost feel the presence of the copper smith and imagine what it must have been like working in there all those years ago.”

The dig site consists of the remains of a small, cellular building dating to a period between the 6th and 9th Century AD.  It was semi-subterranean.  The building was entered via steps and a curved corridor, which would have minimised the amount of light entering the smithy, permitting the smith to assess the temperature of the hot metal based on its colouration in the fire.  A door would have separated the workshop from the corridor.  Many of the stone fittings, the pivot stone, door jamb and bar hole, for example, remained intact.  The centre was dominated by the hearth, with a set upright stone on the doorward side protecting the hearth fire from drafts.  Scientific analysis at Bradford University should reveal what was on the smith’s hands to produce the prints and explore the reasons for their remarkable preservation.

Everything Dinosaur team members might be well-versed in mapping and recording trace fossils, but this insight into the life and daily work of a person on the Island of Rousay is quite remarkable.  A spokesperson for Everything Dinosaur commented:

“Let’s hope that the archaeologists can win the race against the tide and the elements and preserve this amazing discovery for the benefit of science.”

Working in Collaboration with the City University of New York

The Pictish smithy is part of an excavation project directed by Dr Julie Bond and Dr Stephen Dockrill.  The site is being excavated by staff and students from the University of Bradford in collaboration with the City University of New York.  The building is part of a substantial Iron Age settlement which is being rapidly destroyed by the sea.  It is expected that with the onset of autumn, the damage to the site from wind and waves will be increased.  Work this year has centred on the Pictish workshop and a Neolithic Chambered Cairn which is also being eroded.

The project is funded by the Swandro Orkney Coastal Archaeology Trust, Historic Environment Scotland, National Lottery, University of Bradford, Orkney Islands Council, Rousay Development Trust and the Orkney Archaeological Society.

Dino Fest at The Beacon Whitehaven

Dino Fest at The Beacon Whitehaven

The countdown has started, there are less than 48-hours to go before our first dinosaur and fossil workshop at The Beacon Museum (Whitehaven, Cumbria).  Staff at Everything Dinosaur have been preparing all the fossils and sorting out a vehicle so that it can be loaded up with all the fossils and other goodies which we will need this weekend as Everything Dinosaur delivers dinosaur and fossil workshops.  The plan is that visitors to Dino Fest at The Beacon will be able to help our team members hunt for fossils including real dinosaur bones!

Dino Fest from Friday 27th July until Sunday 29th July

Be a Dinosaur Detective

Join team members from Friday afternoon and throughout the weekend and take part in fossil casting, fossil handling and get the chance to find your very own fossils of prehistoric animals.  What you find you can keep, so, why not start your very own fossil collection.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“We will be delivering a total of three workshops, starting Friday afternoon.  We plan to conduct some fossil casting of specimens from our collection, including T. rex teeth and Velociraptor claws and then we can look at dinosaur skulls and of course, being shark week, we will have to include some prehistoric sharks too.”

When not providing workshops, the team members from Everything Dinosaur will be laying out fossil trays and inviting visitors to The Beacon Museum to search for ancient crocodile armour, Silurian coral, fossilised wood, sharks teeth, brachiopods, ammonites and other evidence of ancient life Everything Dinosaur has collected on their travels around the world.  As you would expect from a company called “Everything Dinosaur”, there will be some dinosaur fossils to find as well.

Late Cretaceous Dinosaurs

An Everything Dinosaur spokesperson explained that as fossils erode out of the ground, they are acted upon by natural forces causing the material to weather.  If people did not go out hunting for fossils, then much of the fossil record would simply be eroded away and lost forever.

“Imagine a 66 million-year-old Triceratops leg bone, exposed by erosion in the Hell Creek Formation of Montana.  It might be from an animal that lived in the Late Cretaceous but just a few years of freeze/thaw and weathering and the bone would simply crumble away.  By conducting fossil workshops and helping to explain how to tell fossils from rock, we might one day help someone discover their very own prehistoric animal, after all, around 100 different dinosaurs are known from fossils found in the British Isles.”
