Collecta Juvenile T Rex Dinosaur Model Revised
Youth collection Tyrant Saurus Rex Revised Dinosaur Model
Tyrannosaurus Rex It may be the most famous of all dinosaurs, but baby tyrannosaurs figures are few and far between. Far East-based Collecta has produced a non-scale replica of a young Tyrannosaurus for their series of prehistoric dinosaur and animal models and what a nice figure too.
The model is about three inches long from its short, stubby snout to the tip of its striped tail and is just over two inches tall. The model has been sculpted to give the impression that this young man had feathers. Paleontologists believe that warm-blooded (endothermic) animals like Tyrant Saurus Rex it may have been covered with insulating feathers to help keep them warm.
Standing on its long legs, this young man was much more agile than the adult animal. It probably had to be how it would have been on the menu of other Late Cretaceous predators, even members of his own family and siblings. The model rests on a base, this allows the three toes to be approximately in proportion to the rest of the body, although as not Tyrannosaurus Rex If a baby skeleton has ever been found, the body proportions are approximate. Fragmentary fossil material from the Hell Creek Formation of the western United States and part of the collection of vertebrate fossils at the Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History, California, has been attributed to an infant. Tyrant Saurus Rex, but several scientists have questioned whether these fossils really represent a juvenile of the species.
Distal growth used to create a dinosaur model
The scientific concept of distal growth has been used to create this Colleca dinosaur model. The animal has been given relatively long limbs in proportion to its head and body. As an adult, the body proportions of Tyrant Saurus Rex it would have been very different.
A camouflaged predator
The model has been painted with green and brown stripes with a white “V” shape on the nape and back, in front of the hips. The head is mostly brown but with a reddish tint behind the eyes. The coloration would have helped camouflage this young dinosaur and prevent predators from seeing it.
Excellent dinosaur replica
The baby Tyrannosaurus Rex Dinosaur is an excellent addition to the Collecta model range. Works well with the 1:40 scale adult. Tyrant Saurus Rex model that can be found in the Deluxe model series. We hope that this manufacturer will continue to make more baby dinosaur models.
