PNSO Prehistoric Animal Models

This is the second new PNSO product announcement made by Everything Dinosaur this week.  A few days ago, it was announced that the Amargasaurus, Spinosaurus and Mosasaurus figures were being stocked, along with a new range of intermediate models featuring a Megalodon and an Ankylosaurus.  To see this earlier announcement: Everything Dinosaur Announces more PNSO Figures Coming into Stock.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“At the start of the year, we claimed that we would be bringing into stock at least fifty new prehistoric animal models.  Once again, we have proven to be as good as our word with the addition of these two excellent PNSO figures.  Customers can now source PNSO replicas such as the new for 2019 “Ron” the Mosasaurus, “Lucio” the Amargasaurus, “Dayong” the Yangchuanosaurus and “Xiaobei” the Chungkingosaurus, as well as the Giganotosaurus “Lucas” from a supplier based in the west.”

Anatomical accuracy is very important for Everything Dinosaur, when it comes to selecting which prehistoric animal models and figures to stock.  In addition, when it comes to dinosaur dioramas featuring a pair of animals, the geological and temporal context has to be correct.  PNSO have been very careful to create beautiful and anatomically accurate figures based on the fossil evidence.  Yangchuanosaurus and Chungkingosaurus were contemporaneous so the depicting of this encounter between theropod and armoured dinosaur is perfectly valid in our view.

The carnivorous Yangchuanosaurus has an unusual claim to fame, it was the first theropod dinosaur to be named and scientifically described by four authors (Y. shangyouensis by Dong, Chang, Li and Zhou in 1978). 

Yangchuanosaurus is known from several specimens including a considerable amount of cranial material.  Analysis of these fossils has revealed that it had a remarkable change in its body proportions as this dinosaur grew.  A sub-adult specimen reveals a skull some 9% shorter than its femur, but in an adult specimen, the skull is proportionately much bigger, some 15% longer than the adult femur.  As Yangchuanosaurus matured so its skull increased in size, this probably reflects the position of the adults as the dominant, apex predators within the ecosystem represented by the vertebrate fossil assemblage from the Upper Shaximiao Formation.

“Lucas” the Giganotosaurus

Whilst PNSO have tended to produce models of prehistoric animals known from Asia, it is great to see a figure of the super-sized South American predator Giganotosaurus added to their range.
