A “Battle Damaged” Pachycephalosaurus
Wild Safari Prehistoric World Pachycephalosaurus with “Battle Damage”
The new for 2020 Wild Safari Prehistoric World Pachycephalosaurus model is a little bit special. Naturally, it is beautifully painted and an accurate depiction of a Late Cretaceous “bone-headed” dinosaur, but the design team at Safari Ltd have taken care to introduce an element of subtle “battle damage” to their figure. It is a case of a dinosaur model demonstrating some “pachycephalosaur pathology”.
To help collectors and dinosaur fans to see what we mean, team members at Everything Dinosaur put together this short video.

Demonstrating that Dinosaurs Had Tough Lives
In this short video, (it lasts a little over two minutes long), we show the model and provide close-up views of the brown mark on its skull. This is not a flaw in the particular replica we use in the video, to prove it we show another figure from our stock, with exactly the same feature. The design team at Safari Ltd have provided their Pachycephalosaurus figure with a little bit of “battle damage”, perhaps after a fight with another Pachycephalosaurus over social status in the herd, or perhaps in a dispute over food. The Wild Safari Prehistoric World Pachycephalosaurus might have damaged his headgear whilst competing for females. After all, extant male red deer, the bucks, do damage their antlers in the autumn rut, when they are fighting to win the right to mate.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:
“Safari Ltd have gone that extra mile by thinking carefully how they could reflect inferred behaviour in their Pachycephalosaurus dinosaur model. We congratulate the design team for their foresight and consideration. This is a very detailed figure and it is intriguing to see the little extra details that have been incorporated into the sculpt.”
The Everything Dinosaur YouTube channel contains lots of helpful and informative videos about dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals. Team members try to post up a new video once a week and with all these new Safari Ltd models, our script writers are going to be kept very busy.
