Scale Model of Ankylosaurus from Bullyland of Germany

The new scale model of Ankylosaurus (Ankylosaurus magniventris), is a new interpretation of this Late Cretaceous ornithischian from Bullyland of Germany.  The model depicts this animal as quite lithe and animated in the middle of swinging its large tail club.

This scale model is beautifully painted and shows lots of fine detail.  Interestingly, for a model depicting the largest of the known and fully described ankylosaurs, the Museum Line Ankylosaurus model shows a relatively slim line version, far removed from the squat and heavy set Ankylosaurus models that we normally see.  The dermal armour resembles the shell of a turtle with a carapace like appearance, other models show the scutes and other elements of the body armour as more raised.
