Amongst the twelve models in the new Schleich “World of History” prehistoric animal range, there is a Spinosaurus replica. Based on the “Saurus” Spinosaurus, this is a not-to-scale dinosaur model and we at Everything Dinosaur have produced a brief five minute video review. It is interesting to note the choice of colour for this dinosaur. Spinosaurus fossils are associated with lush, tropical, estuarine environments, however, the designers at Schleich have decided to give their replica a sandy-brown colour, camouflage more suited to arid, desert environments.

In this short video, team members at Everything Dinosaur describe the model and show how spinosaurid fossils have been studied to provide this replica with some nice detail.

In common with the other theropod dinosaurs featured in this range – T. rex, Giganotosaurus, Velociraptor and Allosaurus, this Spinosaurus replica has an articulated lower jaw. The model can be posed either mouth open or mouth closed.
A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur praised Schleich for adding more dinosaur replicas to their already extensive model range and commented that numerous model collectors and dinosaur fans had expressed their excitement about the introduction of this new Spinosaurus dinosaur model.
