Introducing a Tyrannosaur Family Photograph
Amid speculation from palaeontologists as to whether members of the Tyrannosauroidea lived in family groups and perhaps hunted in packs, Papo, the figure and replica manufacturer from France, have introduced two models of juvenile Tyrannosaurs to accompany the adults in the company’s “Les Dinosaures” model range.
There are actually two baby T. rex models being released by Papo this year (expected with Everything Dinosaur in May). One of these is painted green, we think as a companion piece to the new running T. rex sculpt. The second, a dusky, brown coloured replica which works well with the new re-painted version of the original (dark green) T. rex replica. The two brown tyrannosaurs can be seen in the picture below – a sort of T. rex family “snapshot”. They are to be added to the Papo dinosaurs model range.

In our picture, the juvenile is looking up to the adult tyrannosaur, the detail on the models can be made out and these 2012 additions, keep up the excellent quality that can be found in the rest of the Papo model range. The two baby rexes are the same model (both have articulated jaws, just like the adult replicas), but they have been painted in different colours. Great to see another Papo T. rex figure.

The juvenile rexes, each measure approximately 11 centimetres in length and stand 9 centimetres tall.
