Everything Dinosaur has posted up onto its YouTube channel the second video in the trilogy showcasing the Rebor Saurophaganax maximus Notorious Big 1:35 scale dinosaur models. The second video features the “Jungle” colour scheme. The short YouTube video highlighting the Rebor Saurophaganax in the “Badlands” colour scheme was posted up a few days ago, the final video in this series, showcasing the stunning “Volcanic Cavern” figure will be posted shortly.
The “Jungle” Colour Variant
Saurophaganax fossil material is exceptionally rare, much rarer than its contemporaries such as Allosaurus fragilis or Ceratosaurus nasicornis. Although numerous theropods are associated with the the Brushy Basin Member, which is the youngest part of the Morrison Formation, only a handful of fragmentary fossils have been ascribed to S. maximus.
Careful and systematic study of the sedimentary characteristics of the Brushy Basin Member (Tanner et al, 2014), contradict the original conclusion that these sediments were laid down in a very wet environment with extensive lakes and marshes. The palaeoclimate suggests strong seasonal variations with semi-arid periods caused by reduced rainfall (weaker monsoons) interspersed with much wetter, sub-humid periods that resulted from much stronger monsoons. A green-coloured predator would have been camouflaged well against the background vegetation. Of all the three colour variants offered by Rebor – “Badlands, “Jungle” and “Volcanic Cavern”, arguably “Jungle” would provide the best camouflage for the predator.
Rebor Saurophaganax maximus “Jungle” Video Showcase
Everything Dinosaur’s Rebor Saurophaganax maximus “Jungle” video showcase starts by showing the dinosaur model on a revolving turntable, the model is held to provide a guide for size and the articulated jaw and arms are demonstrated.
