PNSO to Add an Iguanodon Model
PNSO will introduce a replica of an Iguanodon into their prehistoric animal model range in 2022. Harvey the Iguanodon will be in stock at Everything Dinosaur, one of several new figures that PNSO will be adding to their portfolio in the coming months. For example, one of our earlier blog posts introduced the new version of Doyle the Triceratops, another ornithischian added to this exciting product range.
Named and described in 1825, only the second dinosaur to be scientifically described “iguana tooth” has had a troubled taxonomic history, with numerous revisions and changes. For example, the holotype for the species I. bernissartensis has changed. The holotype is the single, physical specimen which acts as the blueprint for all other fossil samples to be compared against. The original holotype consisted of the isolated teeth and partial remains identified by Gideon Mantell. The International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN) ruled that the type species be changed to the I. bernissartensis with the new holotype IRSNB 1534, a much more complete specimen which was part of a treasure trove of Iguanodon fossils discovered in a coal mine in Belgium in 1878 and studied by the famous Belgian palaeontologist Louis Dollo.
A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:
“It is wonderful to see this famous Lower Cretaceous ornithopod added to the PNSO model range. The figure will have an official, declared scale of 1:35 and we are looking forward to stocking this excellent dinosaur in early 2022.”
The Model Measurements
Harvey the Iguanodon model has a declared scale of 1:35. The model measures 27 cm in length and stands around 9.5 cm high at the hip. The acclaimed dinosaur expert and best-selling author Gregory S. Paul has stated that Iguanodon bernissartensis had a maximum length of approximately 8 metres. Based on this size estimate, the 27 cm long model would be in around 1:29.5 scale.
Supplied with a Booklet, Colour Posters and a QR Code Linked to a Video
This PNSO dinosaur model is supplied with an illustrated, full colour booklet, colour posters and the packaging contains a QR code that when scanned links to a short video that explains how the figure was developed.
Harvey the Iguanodon will be in stock at Everything Dinosaur in early 2022.
