Eofauna Konobelodon atticus Reviewed

By | May 12th, 2022|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Product Reviews|0 Comments

Our thanks to prehistoric animal fan and model collector William who sent into Everything Dinosaur a review of his recently purchased Eofauna Konobelodon atticus figure.

William wrote to Everything Dinosaur commenting on how well packaged his parcel had been. The Konobelodon atticus is the fourth prehistoric figure released by Eofauna and he praised the scientific accuracy of this exciting range.

Konobelodon Reviewed

William began his review by explaining that the skull was longer and lower than those of modern elephants. He compared the Konobelodon head to other extinct proboscideans such as mastodons and gomphotheres. He highlighted the position of the eyes and the orbits set deeper and protected by a ridge of bone.

He summarised how these prehistoric elephants got their nickname “Shovel-Tuskers” and postulated that due to the observed pattern of wear on the tusks, the lower tusks were probably used to rasp the trunks of trees in order to feed on the bark.

William praised the trunk on the Eofauna model, commenting that it looked very natural and with the tip of the trunk swaying to the left it gave the impression that this elephant was either feeding or drinking.

The reviewer added:

As with all the Eofauna Proboscidea no detail is missed on the mouth from pink tongue to the tusks and the nasal openings. There are two, beautiful, pale yellow eyes that even in miniature form seem to portray the Proboscidea as having wisdom and compassion.”

Konobelodon model
Originally named in 1857, Konobelodon atticus has had a long and complicated taxonomic history. William praises this figure for its scientific accuracy.

Roaming the Savannah or Forest

The body is described as being long and robust, typical of the Amebelodontinae. William points out that old illustrations of this animal depicted it as a sprawling hippo-like swamp dweller. The Eofauna Scientific Research replica is a modern interpretation, this model would not be out of place roaming a savannah or forest.

William stated:

“This is all down to Eofauna’s painstaking research to create the perfect accurate model.”

Information About K. atticus

William remarked that the model’s colour scheme was similar to the colouration seen today in extant Asian elephants with a mixture of splashes of pink and fleshy tones on the ears, chest, forehead and trunk.

The toenails have had the same pink and grey wash applied and the tuft of black hair on the end of the tail was singled out for comment by the reviewer.

William provided the model’s measurements:

Scale: 1/35.
Height: 4 inches.
Length: 9 inches.

A short history of the discovery of the first Konobelodon fossil material was provided encompassing the role played in the discovery by the historian John Finlay, soldiers in the army of the Bavaria that occupied Greece and how the fossils came to the notice of the German palaeontologist Johan Andreas Wagner.

Epoch: Miocene 15–10 million years ago.
Geographical Range: North America, Europe and China.
Weight: 9-10 Tons.
Height: 12-13 Feet.
Length: 26 Feet.

Eofauna Scientific Research Konobelodon atticus
The stunning Eofauna Konobelodon model measures 23 cm long and stands approximately 11 cm high.

William concluded his review by stating that in his opinion the Eofauna Konobelodon prehistoric elephant model was a “masterpiece” and he praised Everything Dinosaur for their excellent customer service and the swift delivery of his order.

Our thanks to William for sending into Everything Dinosaur his Eofauna Konobelodon model review.

William Reviews the Eofauna Diplodocus carnegii Model

By | May 9th, 2022|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Product Reviews|0 Comments

Our thanks to dinosaur fan and model collector William who sent into Everything Dinosaur a review of the new for 2022 Eofauna Scientific Research Diplodocus carnegii model. William commented that the model arrived within 24-hours of placing the order and it was perfectly and expertly wrapped, being supplied in a strong cardboard box to protect the model in transit.

The new for 2022 Eofauna Diplodocus carnegii dinosaur model is supplied with a beautifully illustrated collector’s card. Everything Dinosaur team members helped with the hang tag and labelling for the new Eofauna Diplodocus.

The Second Sauropod from Eofauna Scientific Research

In William’s review he pointed out that the Diplodocus carnegii model was the second sauropod figure to be released by Eofauna following the introduction of their Atlasaurus figure in 2019. He praises the typically small diplodocid head, highlights the skin wrinkles and suggests that some palaeontologists think that sauropods had beaked lips to help them shear vegetation. William states that the beak keratin on the model is painted black which contrasts nicely with the inside of the mouth which is painted pink.

He highlights the dermal spines and comments upon the dermal bumps that are depicted over the large body.

Eofauna Diplodocus scale model
The Eofauna Diplodocus carnegii model measures around 60 cm in length and stands 11 cm tall. It is a 1/40th scale model.

A Terrific Torso

The reviewer reflects on the scientifically accurate sculpt of D. carnegii, from the finely rendered legs with the toenails well painted, including the more prominent inner toe claw on all four, compact, sturdy feet (digit I). William states that:

Never will you see such a long model from the tip of the neck to the end of its deadly tail tip.”

The complex colour scheme complete with its counter shading is discussed in William’s review and he praises the design team at Eofauna for their depiction of this iconic dinosaur.

William added:

“When you view the model from a side profile you see a pleasing, warm, earthy palette of hues just right for this Dippy.”

Eofauna Diplodocus and Konobelodon.

The reviewer comments that this figure is in 1/40th scale and measures between 24 and 25 inches in length and stands around 4 inches tall. He explains that this Diplodocus species is associated with the Morrison Formation (Upper Jurassic).

Diplodocus Biography

In concluding his review, William kindly provided some additional notes about this remarkable sauropod genus. Explaining that the genus was erected by the American palaeontologist Othniel Charles Marsh in 1878.

Weight: 15-20 Tonnes.
Height: 16 feet high at the hip.
Length: 88 feet.
Neck length: 20-21 feet.

Ending his model review William kindly praised Everything Dinosaur stating:

“May I take a moment and thank the entire team of Everything Dinosaur.”

He is excited about future model introductions and is looking forward to hearing news of 2023 model releases from Eofauna Scientific Research.

PNSO Zhuchengtyrannus Reviewed

By | April 10th, 2022|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Product Reviews|0 Comments

Our thanks to dinosaur fan and model collector William who sent into Everything Dinosaur a detailed review of the recently introduced PNSO Zhuchengtyrannus.

PNSO Zhuchengtyrannus dinosaur model
The new for 2022 PNSO Zhuchengtyrannus model. Dinosaur fan and model collector William has provided a review of this recently introduced figure.

PNSO Zhuchengtyrannus magnus “Lu Xiong”

The new for 2022 PNSO Zhuchengtyrannus dinosaur model is release number 58 in the PNSO prehistoric animal model range. The head is a fabulous sculpt of a classical Tyrannosaurinae skull. The skull is powerful and robust ideal to attack prey and with jaws capable of crushing bone. The PNSO Zhuchengtyrannus is depicted as an apex predator. The lacrimal horn is of the same superb standard as seen on other PNSO theropod models. William also praises the detailing associated with the mandibular fenestrae.

PNSO Lu Xiong the Zhuchengtyrannus has an articulated lower jaw.

William points out that this figure has an articulated jaw and carefully sculpted teeth and praises the ear vents, commenting that this top predator had sensitive hearing capable of picking up the subtle rumble of low frequencies.

Forelimbs, Legs and Skin Tone

The reviewer states that the now familiar but carefully crafted PNSO shoulders, arms and two fingered hands of this figure are on a par with other PNSO carnivorous dinosaurs. The limbs are particularly robust and show some wonderful detail. The left foot is slightly raised giving the impression of slow but deliberate movement.

William compliments the design team at PNSO for the care and attention they have taken over the skin texture and scales.

He comments:

“From every fold and wrinkle and right down to his bull neck and well hefted bulk of the ribcage we have a Zhuchengtyrannus magnus in his full power of his youth and prime in perfect condition. For those with an extra eye for detail we have the perfect cloaca.”

The Colouration of the Model

William describes the colouration of the PNSO figure explaining that the skin tone moves from a beige cream to a yellow beige with an olive-green wash running from behind the eyes down the neck and shoulders across the thighs and towards the rear of the model. He points out that dark brown and tan stripes can be observed running the length of the tail. The anterior portion of the muzzle has black scales. The eyes are painted yellow with black pupils and the lacrimal crests are tinged with a hint of orange that “bring Lu Xiong to life”.

William also comments that the PNSO Zhuchengtyrannus is supplied with a clear plastic support stand, a full-colour booklet and a stunning poster showing the three recently proposed species of Tyrannosaurus (T. imperator, T. regina and Tyrannosaurus rex).

The new for 2022 PNSO Lu Xiong the Zhuchengtyrannus dinosaur model is supplied with colour posters, a 64-page information booklet and the packaging has a QR code that links to a short video that explains how the figure was developed.

William Provides Scientific Details

William provides model measurements and some details outlining the discovery of this iconic Asian tyrannosaur.

Scale: 1:32-1:38 (Campanian faunal stage of the Late Cretaceous)
Length: 12 & 1/4 inches.
Height: 4 & 1/2 inches.

In 2011 the holotype was found in Shandong province of eastern China. A nearly perfect right maxilla with left dentary and teeth.

William concludes his Zhuchengtyrannus review by stating that this model lives up to its specific name “great”.

He adds:

“Remember this, some of us have waited a long time to own a Tyrannosaurinae model. Now is your chance, given to us all by PNSO. Additionally, he will pair to perfection with the previous three PNSO Tyrannosaurinae models.”

William Praises Everything Dinosaur

William praised Everything Dinosaur for supplying the model commenting that his faith and respect for Everything Dinosaur has never wavered from his first purchase many years ago to his latest acquisition “Lu Xiong”.

William stated:

“In truth why I hold them in such high esteem is that the entire Everything Dinosaur company loves and care for what they do equally as they care for every customer from visiting schools to safety testing their products and creating an information sheet for every model they stock to maintaining an up to date homepage and blog and the full spread of their media accounts are fresh and informative…..They are “Everything Dinosaur.”

Rebor Saurophaganax “Volcanic Cavern” Colour Variant

By | March 18th, 2022|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Product Reviews|0 Comments

Team members at Everything Dinosaur review the Rebor Saurophaganax maximus “Notorious Big” dinosaur model in the “volcanic cavern” colour scheme. In total, three colour variants of this Late Jurassic apex predator have been introduced by Rebor in 2022, “Badlands” was highlighted in an earlier (March 2022), blog post: Rebor Saurophaganax “Badlands” . This week, we posted up more pictures of the “jungle” colour variant: Rebor Saurophaganax “Jungle” and today, we conclude by focusing on the stunning, crimson “volcanic cavern” Saurophaganax dinosaur model.

Volcanic Ash and the Brushy Basin Member

The name of this brightly coloured, 1:35 scale dinosaur model has links with volcanism. Naming a Saurophaganax model “volcanic cavern” is highly appropriate and we congratulate Rebor for their choice of moniker. The holotype material collected by J. W. Stovall in 1931 and 1932 comes from a site in Cimarron County, Oklahoma (OMNH Quarry 1). The sediments represent the Brushy Basin Member of the Morrison Formation, one of the youngest geological units associated with the famous, highly fossiliferous Morrison Formation.

The upper portions of the Brushy Basin Member are dominated by layers of weathered volcanic ash. Altered volcanic ash is particularly abundant in the Brushy Basin Member of the upper part of the Morrison Formation. In one 110-metre-thick section in eastern Utah, 35 separate beds of volcanic ash were deposited over a period of 2.2 million years.

A “Popcorn” Texture

A characteristic of the Brushy Basin Member is the amount of bentonite present. This is a form of weathered ash that has become mixed with fine clay. It is extremely absorbent and tends to swell up as it absorbs moisture giving the ground a bubbly appearance resembling popcorn.

During the Late Jurassic, subduction of the North American tectonic plate led to the creation of a line of volcanoes along the western margins of North America. Periodically, these volcanoes would erupt and eject huge volumes of ash into the atmosphere. The ash clouds would drift eastwards and blanket the land further inland. Saurophaganax lived during this time of volcanic activity and these reptiles would have witnessed the volcanism and suffered the consequences as a result of the periodic eruptions that took place far to the west.

The impressive Rebor Saurophaganax maximus dinosaur model in the “volcanic cavern” colour scheme. Fossils of this large theropod have been recovered from the Brushy Basin Member of the Morrison Formation. The upper sections of the Brushy Basin Member contain extensive layers of volcanic ash which once weathered form the clay material bentonite. Naming a model of Saurophaganax after volcanism is highly appropriate.

Dating the Strata from Zircons

These volcanic ash deposits yield, extremely resistant zircon crystals which can be used to precisely date the time of deposition by measuring the radiometric decay of isotopes within the igneous material (usually uranium to lead decay). Radiometric dating permits scientists to make an estimate of the age of the bedding planes and infer the age of the fossils that they contain. The presence of the weathered volcanic ash has assisted palaeontologists in working out the age of Brushy Basin component layers.

Rebor Saurophaganax “Jungle” Colour Variant

By | March 15th, 2022|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Product Reviews|0 Comments

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.

Rebor Saurophaganax in the "jungle" colour scheme.
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.

Rebor Saurophaganax in the “Badlands” Colour Scheme

By | March 10th, 2022|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Product Reviews|0 Comments

Recently, Rebor introduced three Saurophaganax scale models under the moniker “Notorious Big”. Today, we at Everything Dinosaur take a look at one of the three colour variants – the Rebor Saurophaganax maximus in the “Badlands” colour scheme.

The “Badlands” Variant

Saurophaganax is the official state fossil of Oklahoma, where the first fossils that were ascribed to this genus were found (although originally named Saurophagus maximus, until it was discovered the genus name was preoccupied). The validity of the genus remains controversial. Fossils assigned to S. maximus, could represent exceptionally large examples of Allosaurus.

The “Badlands” colour variant with its purple hues and glossy appearance is a bit of a misnomer, no fossils ascribed to Saurophaganax have been found in areas referred to as “Badlands”, its fossils, as far as we at Everything Dinosaur are aware, are confined to sedimentary deposits associated with the vast Morrison Formation.

Rebor Saurophaganax maximus (Badlands Colour Scheme)
The Rebor Saurophaganax maximus “Notorious Big” in the “Badlands” colour scheme. One of a trio of Saurophaganax scale models introduced in the early spring of 2022.

The figure has articulated arms, a flexible tail and an articulated lower jaw. It has a declared scale of 1:35 the model measures around 41.5 cm long and has a head height of approximately 13 cm.

Saurophaganax was one of the largest, terrestrial predators of the Late Jurassic. Fossils are associated with Upper Kimmeridgian to Lower Tithonian aged deposits (155.7 to 145 million years ago). Several major dinosaur-fossil bearing geological formations have revealed that there were many contemporaneous large carnivorous theropods present in the ancient ecosystem. For example, Morrison Formation fossil material indicates the presence of Torvosaurus, Allosaurus, Saurophaganax, Ceratosaurus and Marshosaurus. The roughly contemporaneous Lourinhã Formation (Portugal) indicates a similar theropod biota – Lourinhanosaurus, Torvosaurus, Allosaurus, Ceratosaurus, plus possible megalosauroids and abelisaurids, although no material ascribed to the Saurophaganax genus has been found to date in Portugal.

PNSO Torvosaurus Dinosaur Diorama

By | February 16th, 2022|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Everything Dinosaur Products, Main Page, Photos of Everything Dinosaur Products, Product Reviews|0 Comments

Our thanks to John a dinosaur model collector and fan of PNSO prehistoric animals who sent into Everything Dinosaur some photographs of his recently completed PNSO Connor the Torvosaurus diorama. John was self-isolating after contracting COVID-19, we are glad to hear he is feeling much better and is looking forward to the arrival of the new for 2022 PNSO Harvey the Iguanodon model. Perhaps, there are plans for a Torvosaurus interacting with an ornithopod dinosaur diorama.

Connor the Torvosaurus Dinosaur Model

The PNSO Torvosaurus model came into stock at Everything Dinosaur last year. It is a replica of the Late Jurassic megalosaur, one of the largest carnivorous dinosaurs described to date from this time in Earth’s history. Two species of Torvosaurus are regarded as valid T. tanneri from North America and T. gurneyi from Europe. However, just like the contemporaneous Allosaurus taxon, it is likely that more species of Torvosaurus will be named and described as existing fossil material is re-examined in conjunction with new fossil discoveries.
