Rebor 1:35 scale Yutyrannus huali available from Everything Dinosaur
Everything Dinosaur stocks Rebor dinosaur replicas. Rebor have released a 1:35 scale model of a tyrannosauroid whose fossils come from northern China (Yutyrannus huali). This is the first in this exciting new range and team members are keen to see how the Rebor range of dinosaur and prehistoric animal models develops.
The model has been nicknamed Y-REX a reference to the most famous tyrannosaur of all, Tyrannosaurus rex, although in terms of geochronological time, Y. huali (the name means beautiful feathered tyrant), lived at least fifty-five million years before T. rex evolved. In fact, in terms of when this dinosaur roamed, it is much closer to the likes of Allosaurus and the Chinese allosauroid Sinraptor which lived during the Late Jurassic than it is to the Late Cretaceous Tyrannosaurus rex.
One thing Yutyrannus has in common with the mighty T. rex is that it too, was probably an apex predator. At around nine metres in length and weighing as much as a Volkswagen Golf, this dinosaur, which was formally named and described in 2012, proved that in some parts of the world at least, tyrannosauroids were the dominant predators relatively early on in their evolutionary history.
