The new Safari Ltd Wild Safari Prehistoric World Albertosaurus dinosaur model is now in stock at Everything Dinosaur. A magnificent and colourful tyrannosaur.
Wild Safari Prehistoric World Albertosaurus
This striking replica of a Late Cretaceous, North American member of the Tyrannosauridae family is a welcome addition to the Safari Ltd model range. This extensive model series already includes several T. rex figures and in 2021, a replica of Daspletosaurus was added to this range.
The model measures 25 cm long (10 inches) and that detailed head stands approximately 11.5 cm (4.5 inches) off the ground. A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented that the patterning on the model chosen by the designers would have helped to camouflage this large carnivore as it stalked its prey in the woodlands that were common throughout the Late Cretaceous landscape of northern Laramidia.
Albertosaurus fossils, specifically the nearly 1,150 fossil bones recovered from the Dry Island bonebed adjacent to the Red Deer River in Alberta, provide evidence that this theropod was gregarious and lived in packs.
The type species Albertosaurus sarcophagus was named and described by Henry Fairfield Osborn in 1905, the same year in which Osborn named and described the much larger, geologically younger but closely related Tyrannosaurus rex.
