Isaac the Sauropelta

Sauropelta (S. edwardsorum), is thought to have been an early member of the Nodosauridae family.  The fossils of this heavily-built herbivore come from the Little Sheep Mudstone Member of the famous Cloverly Formation, this strata represents the middle section of this Early Cretaceous formation, the bedding planes associated with Sauropelta edwardsorum fossils are believed to have been deposited approximately 108 million years ago (Albian faunal stage of the Cretaceous).

Sauropelta co-existed with a number of theropod dinosaurs including the allosauroid Acrocanthosaurus as well as the large dromaeosaurid Deinonychus.  The armour, including huge defensive spikes, so exquisitely replicated in the new PNSO model would have helped to defend this slow-moving quadruped from attacks from these predators.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“It’s great to see a replica of this American nodosaurid added to the extensive PNSO dinosaur model range.  The company has announced a number of new armoured model introductions recently, including a model of Borealopelta and a replica of the Chinese stegosaur Tuojiangosaurus.  They are all so good it is difficult to pick out a favourite.”

The PNSO Sauropelta dinosaur model is likely to be in stock at Everything Dinosaur in early 2021.   The model measures 17.3 cm in length.
