The amazing ITOY Studio Paraceratherium models have arrived at Everything Dinosaur. We have in stock the ITOY Studio Deluxe Paraceratherium that comes with a heavy polystone base and the ITOY Studio Elite Paraceratherium, the model being supplied without the display base.
A Very Large Model of a Very Large Prehistoric Mammal
The Paraceratherium genus is considered by many palaeontologists to have been the largest land mammal to have ever existed. Some fossil specimens indicate that this giant relative of the extant rhinoceros stood nearly five metres tall at the shoulder. The ITOY Studio model, in keeping with the fossil record, is also enormous. The figure measures over 40 cm in length and that beautifully detailed head is nearly 25 cm off the ground.
Everything Dinosaur customers who purchase this model will also receive our free fact sheet that provides information about this extinct genus. Scientists are learning more about Paraceratherium as new fossils are discovered. Recently, we published a blog post about a newly described species of Paraceratherium
Scientists had uncovered fossil bones and we produced a blog post summarising the paper that announced a new Paraceratherium species (Paraceratherium linxiaense) from Gansu Province, China.
To read our blog post from June 2021, about Paraceratherium linxiaense: A New Species of Paraceratherium is Described.
Paraceratherium Elite and Deluxe
The decision was taken to bring in both versions of the Paraceratherium replica (Elite and Deluxe). This enabled team members to price the Elite version (supplied without the heavy polystone base) lower than the price for the Deluxe figure.
The Elite Paraceratherium figure is supplied in a big black box, whilst the Deluxe model with base is supplied in a large white box. At least this colour scheme will help our packing team to differentiate between the two replicas.
