Spinosaurus (Carnegie Collectibles Spinosaurus) Gets Reviewed
A few weeks ago, we asked our loyal followers what dinosaurs and prehistoric animal models they would like us to review. We are grateful for all the suggestions that we received and slowly but surely we are getting through the list that was compiled. One of the most popular requests was for Everything Dinosaur to produce a video review of the Carnegie Collectibles Spinosaurus dinosaur model, so this is exactly what we have done.
This short review ( 5 minutes 25 seconds), explains a little about the fossil evidence which has led a number of scientists to postulate that this dinosaur was perhaps the largest, carnivorous, terrestrial, animal known to science. The approximate scale of this replica is discussed and we consider what purpose the sail-like structure on the back of this animal might have had.

To view Everything Dinosaur’s range of dinosaur, pterosaur and prehistoric animal figures in the Safari Ltd model series: Wild Safari Prehistoric World Models and Figures.
Launched in 2009 this Spinosaurus model has proved to be very popular with collectors and dinosaur fans. It is interesting to note the great variety of Spinosaurid models available, each manufacturer seems to have their own distinct interpretation of the fossil material. Safari Ltd have made their Spinosaurus look very graceful, even elegant. It is a long-limbed, lightweight version of Spinosaurus. This contrasts with other Spinosaurus models such as the recently introduced Spinosaurus (World of History) replica made by Schleich.
A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented that this was a substantial and very well made theropod dinosaur figure.
