Trying to Round up a Megacerops

We have been experimenting with some of the backdrop pictures that CollectA have kindly provided for us.  The picture team members at Everything Dinosaur have created shows a Neanderthal man bravely trying to corral a fearsome CollectA Megacerops (Thunder Beast).  The Brontotheres were extinct by the time the Neanderthals (H. neanderthalensis) evolved but we thought we would practice our photoshop skills by trying to create this image.

Fossils of Neanderthals show a considerable amount of pathology.  The sort of injuries identified match those seen in modern day rodeo riders, so palaeontologists think that these hominids tackled large prey at close quarters.  They must have been very tough, the CollectA Neanderthal figure certainly looks very tough.

A spokesperson for the UK-based mail order company explained that team members had been trying to improve their photoshop skills and the newly arrived CollectA prehistoric animal figures along with the product images that has been supplied had given them plenty of opportunities to experiment.
