The Eofauna 1:35 Scale Giganotosaurus Dinosaur Model

The Eofauna 1:35 scale replica of the huge theropod Giganotosaurus (G. carolinii), is in stock at Everything Dinosaur.  This is the third replica in the Eofauna Scientific Research series and the first representative of the Dinosauria to be introduced to this highly-respected model range.

An Accurate Representation of a Member of the Carcharodontosauridae

Remarkably, when the fossilised remains of a leg bone from a large, meat-eating dinosaur was found by car mechanic Ruben Carolini whilst prospecting for fossils in Neuquén Province (Argentina), the field team that was dispatched to explore the site went onto excavate nearly seventy percent of the skeleton of an individual dinosaur.  To find so many elements of the skeleton of a large theropod in close proximity is exceptionally rare.  From this material, palaeontologists were able to build up an accurate picture of this hypercarnivore.  Ironically, it was some years after the announcement of the discovery of Giganotosaurus (1994), that a more complete study of the anatomy of this Late Cretaceous dinosaur was undertaken.

The scientists at Eofauna Scientific Research have used their expertise to create an accurate representation of a member of the Carcharodontosauridae family.  Giganotosaurus carolinii may have been bigger than Tyrannosaurus rex, although estimates of a body length in excess of 14 metres are based on fossilised teeth not more conventional size estimates such as femora measurements.

A Museum Quality Model

Measuring approximately thirty-nine centimetres in length and with a head height of eleven centimetres, this is a most impressive model and much larger than most other replicas of Giganotosaurus that have been produced in the last few years.  The attention to detail on this figure is superb and the muted colours and patterns help to emphasis the figure’s quality.  The lower jaw is articulated and when the mouth is opened a glossy, red coloured mouth and tongue are revealed.

To purchase the Eofauna Giganotosaurus and the rest of the prehistoric animal models within the Eofauna Scientific Research range: Eofauna Scientific Research Figures.

There are life-size skeletal reconstructions of Giganotosaurus on display in several natural history museums around the world, however, we think collectors and dinosaur fans are going to be more than happy with this 1:35 scale, museum quality replica.  Although this figure has been available for just a few days, reviews and feedback has already come in from Everything Dinosaur customers.

William wrote to tell us:

“The giganotosaur’s beautifully robust head is masterfully captured with clean lines, smoothly closing jaws an all-round superb job.”

Our thanks to William and all the other model collectors who have contacted us to let us know their delight at acquiring this fine piece.
