Sir David Attenborough and the Amazing Pliosaur Fossil Skull

By | December 31st, 2023|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur and Prehistoric Animal News Stories, Dinosaur Fans, Main Page, TV Reviews|0 Comments

A new television documentary featuring Sir David Attenborough is due to be shown on the BBC tomorrow (New Year’s Day). Entitled “Attenborough and the Giant Sea Monster”, it tells the story of the excavation of a huge pliosaur skull from the Dorset coast.

The image (above) shows a replica of a pliosaur on display at the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery. Scientists from Bristol University were involved in the study of this pliosaur skull. The skull likely represents a new genus of pliosaur, and at around ten metres long it was a monster!

The Giant Pliosaur Skull

Such is the preservation of the skull, that although crushed the bones remain in articulation. An accurate three-dimensional image of the fossil could be produced. From these images a three-dimensional model of the skull was made. Professor Emily Rayfield (University of Bristol) and expert in jaw biomechanics was able to use this model to estimate the bite force of this apex predator.

Based on scaling up bite force calculations from Saltwater crocodiles (Crocodylus porosus), a biteforce of around 32,000 newtons was calculated for the pliosaur. Although there is a margin of error to take into account with these calculations, the result represents the highest bite force estimated for a marine animal living or extinct.

The film follows Sir David Attenborough as he investigates the discovery of a lifetime. Sir David joins two of Britain’s most intrepid fossil hunters, Steve Etches and Chris Moore, as they face a race against time to excavate the fossil material from its precarious position halfway up a cliff near Kimmeridge Bay.

“Attenborough and the Giant Sea Monster” is due to be shown on BBC1 at 8pm on January 1st (2024).

Haolonggood Alamosaurus Photographs

The picture (above) shows the proposed colour scheme for Alamosaurus version A. The horned dinosaurs included in the photograph help to show the size of the titanosaur model. The Haolonggood Alamosaurus is in 1:35 scale and it will stand around thirty-five centimetres tall.

The first batch of these figures will be supplied with a display base, tree and an unpainted pterosaur figure.

Email Everything Dinosaur if you want to reserve one of these special dinosaur models: Email Everything Dinosaur.

Those Alamosaurus models reserved prior to the end of the year will be sent out with a display base, tree and an unpainted pterosaur model. The image (above) shows the Alamosaurus version B. It is standing on the display base and unpainted pterosaur figures (both designs) can be seen in the photograph. Only one unpainted pterosaur model will be sent out with each Alamosaurus.

The Limited-edition Alamosaurus (Version C)

The limited-edition (plain) Alamosaurus figure will only be made once. After the first batch of these models have been sold, that colour scheme will be retired.

Favourite and Most Popular Blog Posts of 2023 (Part 2)

By | December 29th, 2023|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Main Page, Photos/Pictures of Fossils, Press Releases|0 Comments

Today, we at Everything Dinosaur continue our countdown of our favourite blog posts of 2023. In the second of this two-part series, we look at the months July to December (2023).

In July we received some amazing prehistoric animal drawings, undertook model review videos, released newsletters and learned about a prehistoric mammal attacking Psittacosaurus. Fans of the invertebrates were not disappointed to read about Arthrolycosa wolterbeeki, the oldest fossil spider to be found in Germany: Germany’s Oldest Spider Arthrolycosa wolterbeeki.

Stocking the Haolonggood Model Range

Book launches, addressing international conferences and discussing trilobites. Just a few of the highlights from August (2023). New abelisaurs were described along with possibly, the heaviest vertebrate that ever lived (Balaenoptera musculus). We welcomed new Beasts of the Mesozoic and PNSO models, but it was another manufacturer that we focused upon. Everything Dinosaur announced that they would be stocking the Haolonggood prehistoric animal model range.

Vectidromeus insularis

In September, we wrote a blog about the first dicraeosaurid from India. Fossil feather proteins and the complexity of birds were discussed along with a new, bizarre theropod from China. Haolonggood models arrived in stock and brachiopods took centre stage. The second Isle of Wight member of the Hypsilophodontidae was described, over 150 years after the first. The dinosaur named Vectidromeus insularis is geologically much older than Hypsilophodon foxii. Blog readers can expect to hear about more new Wealden Group dinosaurs in the future.

“Lonesome George”

Hollywood film premieres, mentoring university students and the boom in mammoth tusk sales threatening extant elephants were all highlighted. Talented model makers and new theropod figures from PNSO and Nanmu Studio were discussed in October. We enjoyed writing about “Lonesome George” an amazing replica of a Pinta Island giant tortoise.

The Everything Dinosaur Blog in November

In November in the UK, the nights were certainly drawing in. The longer evenings allowed us more time to prepare blog posts on the new for 2024 CollectA figures, a new fleet-footed theropod from Brazil and TetZooCon. Rebor introduced GrabNGo Alligators and the Wild Past Scutosaurus and Kotlassia arrived. It was the front page of a national newspaper that drew most attention. Mammoths were going to be back within five years:

2023 Draws to a Close

In the last month of 2023, we wrote about last recommended parcel posting dates and a new television documentary presented by Sir David Attenborough. A new, enormous titanosaur from Argentina was described and we learned about the last meal of a Gorgosaurus. We highlighted our model video reviews and discussed blog maintenance and new model releases.

The first production figure of the new CollectA Deluxe Dearc sgiathanach arrived and this was certainly a highlight of our entire year.

What New Blog Posts for 2024?

There are lots of exciting research papers due to be published. Several new books about prehistoric animals are due to be launched. We at Everything Dinosaur have some exciting plans of our own. There is certainly a lot to do in 2024 and a lot of fascinating stories to cover.

We look forward to continuing our blog and trying to write a daily article.

Favourite and Most Popular Blog Posts of 2023 (Part 1)

By | December 28th, 2023|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur Fans, Main Page, Photos/Pictures of Fossils, Press Releases|0 Comments

At Everything Dinosaur, we try and post up an article on this blog site every single day.  This can be quite a challenge considering all our other activities and projects.  However, as a result of our work on this weblog we have managed to compile a huge amount of information, articles and features chronicling (for the most part), advances in the Earth sciences and new fossil discoveries along with research into prehistoric animals.

We thought it would be interesting to look back at some of our blog posts this year and list the top ten favourite and most popular posts.

Here is part one, numbers ten to six covering January to June.

It was an action-packed January for Everything Dinosaur. The company was awarded Feefo Platinum Trusted Service Award once again, there was a cyber incident at Royal Mail, and we discussed Carboniferous suction feeders. However, it was a superb pterosaur fossil from southern Germany that caught the eye.

To read about this discovery (Balaenognathus maeuseri): A New Pterosaur Species is Described.

February Frogspawn

In February a baby Torosaurus model was reunited with its mum, Mojo models took centre stage and the Rebor Deinosuchus figures arrived. We wrote articles about the larynx of Pinacosaurus, how to leave a review and rare dinosaur footsteps. For the first time, frogs spawned in the office pond in February.

An impact of climate change: Frogspawn in the Office Pond.

Dinosaurs Had Lips

At the end of March, we published an article summarising a new scientific paper that postulated that dinosaurs had lips. The lips versus lipless debate has existed for more than a century. Early depictions of dinosaurs gave them lips like extant lizards. When it came to depicting dinosaurs such as Tyrannosaurus rex in early films, the lips were ditched so that cinema goers could see their teeth. The teeth on show made the dinosaurs more frightening. Movie monsters bearing their huge teeth became a recurrent theme that is still seen in movies today. However, this new paper came firmly down in support of lips on theropod dinosaurs.

It also gave us the opportunity to display the excellent artwork of Mark Witton.

Top Everything Dinosaur Blog Posts (April to June 2023)

In April we discussed T. rex brain size, took into stock new CollectA figures, new staff training and praised the Wyoming “Jurassic Fest”. One of our highlights was the article that examined newly published research on marine reptiles. The study focused on the wide variety of swimming styles adopted by Mesozoic marine reptiles.

To read this post: Mapping Marine Reptiles.

Schleich model retirements were discussed in May along with new Nanmu Studio and PNSO model releases. A rare letter penned by Mary Anning finding a home and a New York prehistoric animal exhibit mystery was solved. However, our highlight was the opportunity to visit the new April the Tenontosaurus exhibit at the Manchester Museum.

Here is the article: Amazing Tenontosaurus Fossils On Display.

It seems appropriate to mention April the Tenontosaurus when reviewing our blog posts from May 2023.

A New Armoured Dinosaur – Vectipelta barretti

Dinosaur drawings, new models and rapidly metamorphosising frogs featured in June. Team members got to visit the astonishing Patagotitan exhibition at the London Natural History Museum. This provides an appropriate segway into our favourite post of that month. A new species of armoured dinosaur was named. Vectipelta barretti honours Professor Paul Barrett of the Natural History Museum.

Rebecca Morgan, Director of Commemorative Coin at The Royal Mint commented:

“We are excited to reveal the roar-some new collectable 50p coins by The Royal Mint, featuring some of the most legendary and mighty dinosaurs of all time – including Tyrannosaurus, Stegosaurus, and Diplodocus. For nearly 200 million years, dinosaurs roamed the Earth so it’s fitting that they are honoured forever on an official UK coin. Seeing these dinosaurs on a 50p coin we hope it will delight and inspire both current and budding palaeontologists for years to come.”

Tyrannosaurus on a 50p Coin

This trio of dinosaur coins are part of a series entitled “Tales of the Earth”. These coins celebrate the amazing diversity of prehistoric animals. According to the media release, although Tyrannosaurus is a famous genus, this is the first time this iconic animal has featured on a UK fifty pence piece.

All three dinosaurs, Tyrannosaurus, Diplodocus and Stegosaurus feature in the Natural History Museum model series.

To view this range: Natural History Museum Dinosaur Models.

Stegosaurus Becomes Currency

Each design is a scientifically accurate reconstruction of the dinosaur and the environment in which it lived. Professor Paul Barrett acted as scientific consultant on the project. A selection of the coins available will feature colour, bringing the dinosaur to life on an official UK coin, depicting the dinosaur and its environment as it would have looked like.

Designer Bob Nicholls stated:

“I have dedicated my life to bringing extinct animals back to life through art, I started drawing dinosaurs as soon as I could hold a pencil – it is my obsession. Any project that allows me to work with long-dead animals is a joy but having an opportunity to create collectable coins for The Royal Mint, with royal approval, is very special indeed.”

New Giant Titanosaur from Argentina Described

By | December 23rd, 2023|Adobe CS5, Dinosaur and Prehistoric Animal News Stories, Dinosaur Fans, Main Page, Palaeontological articles, Photos/Pictures of Fossils|0 Comments

A new species of giant titanosaur has been scientifically described. The dinosaur, known from fossils from Neuquén Province, (Argentina) has been named Bustingorrytitan shiva. This dinosaur may have weighed more than sixty-seven tonnes! Although the body mass estimates are prone to error, it is likely that this huge herbivore weighed at least fifty tonnes.

The fossil material was collected from the base of the Huincul Formation and consists of a relatively complete skeleton and the partial remains of three others. The strata have been dated to the upper Cenomanian (95 mya). The fossils were collected from the surroundings of Villa El Chocón. The genus name was erected to honour Manuel Bustingorry, who permitted the excavation work to take place.

The species name is from the Hindu deity Shiva, which transformed the universe. This alludes to the extensive faunal turnover that occurred in the Cretaceous towards the Cenomanian/Turonian boundary.

Bustingorrytitan fossils.

Calculating the Weight of a Giant Titanosaur

Both cranial and postcranial material was recovered. The fossil material includes right and left humeri and fragmentary thigh bones (femora). From these bones (humerus and the femur) the minimum circumference of these limb bones can be established. A formula (Campione and Evans, 2012) can then be applied to estimate the body mass of the animal. These calculations suggest that B. shiva was heavier than Dreadnoughtus schrani and perhaps comparable to the original body weight calculated for Patagotitan mayorum.

Pelvic and hindlimb elements ascribed to Bustingorrytitan shiva. Note scale bars equal 20 cm. Picture credit: Simón and Salgado (Acta Palaeontologica Polonica).

Intriguingly, the holotype material from which some of the limb bone measurements originate, suggests that the holotype specimen was not fully grown when it died. Bustingorrytitan shiva, may have been much larger.
