Mojo Fun Woolly Rhino Model
The Mojo Fun Woolly Rhino model will be part of the “Prehistoric Life” series and this replica follows the new version Woolly Mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) that the company developed recently. Replicas of Woolly Rhinos are amongst the most popular Ice Age figures with collectors, only Sabre-toothed cat figures and Woolly Mammoths tend to be stronger sellers.
A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:
“We are looking forward to receiving the new Mojo Fun Woolly Rhino model. This is the only new figure being added to the Mojo Fun Prehistoric Life range and from the images we have seen it looks a really good Ice Age figure.”
This geographically widespread species is thought to have originated in Asia (Tibet). Fossils have been found throughout both eastern and western Europe (no fossils found in Ireland). The last of these magnificent creatures died out around 10,000 years ago. Over hunting by humans may have played a role, however, most palaeontologists consider that these large animals were unable to adapt to a rapidly changing climate at the end of the last Ice Age.
It will be interesting to see if that large nose horn has flattened sides. Scientists think the sides of the horn (which was made of keratin), were worn away as the animal brushed snow aside so that it could graze on the sedges, mosses and grasses hidden underneath.
