Bully for the Brontosaurus Model

Brontosaurus is one of those dinosaurs that is popular and easily identified by the general public.  This is in part to it being featured in lots of films, television shows and books.  A Brontosaurus featured in the original King Kong movie that was distributed by Radio Pictures, released in 1933 and starring Fay Wray, Robert Armstrong, Bruce Cabot and of course, King Kong himself.  King Kong was a giant gorilla that shared its home (Skull Island), with a variety of dinosaurs including a fearsome, supposedly carnivorous Brontosaurus.

The genus name was erected by the eminent American palaeontologist Othniel Charles Marsh in 1879.  However, for many years it was regarded as a junior synonym of the closely related Apatosaurus that had been named earlier.  The name Brontosaurus was regarded as “nomen dubium”.

An extensive revision of the diplodocid dinosaurs, at the time the most comprehensive review of dinosaur fossil material ever undertaken (2015), led to establishment once again of Brontosaurus as a valid genus.

The Diplodocidae Family

The scientific review of the Diplodocidae family of sauropods was undertaken by Dr Emanuel Tschopp, Professor Octávio Mateus, (Museu da Lourinhã, Portugal), Dr Roger Benson (Oxford University) and edited by Dr Andrew Farke (Raymond M. Alf Museum of Palaeontology, California).  Schleich have added a replica of this famous Jurassic dinosaur to their range and it joins other long-necked dinosaur figures such as Barapasaurus, Brachiosaurus and the model of the South American sauropod Agustinia, which was only introduced a few months ago (2020).

One of our Dinosaurs is Missing!

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“Just like in the 1975 Walt Disney production “One of our Dinosaurs is Missing”, Everything Dinosaur were missing a long-necked dinosaur.  Ports around the world have been very congested and delivery networks so stretched that sometimes cargoes are separated from each other, even though they are in the same shipment.  Within 24-hours all the Schleich figures were safely in our warehouse.”
