Realistic detailing and incredible paintwork are what set PAPO's Dinosaurs ahead of the rest. Each figurine is hand painted and manufactured according to strict EN-71 specifications; with meticulous attention paid to details like scale, posture, weight, and even texturing for optimal realism.
This fantastically posed dinosaur gives great flexibility in pretend play, as it allows the predator to be 'wandering around' - or, at the flick of its articulated jaw, be ready to attack an enemy dino. The detail on the sculpt is also nothing short of spectacular, from its overall musculature right down to its its beautifully sculpted scales. There is also meticulous intricacies in its head crest, individually sculpted teeth, and even its tail; packing it with a real hefty punch that few other Ceratosauruses out there can measure up to.
CRAZY CERATOSAURUS FACTS!
• The Ceratosaurus seems to have been made up of parts that did a lot for style, but didn't quite cut it when it came to function. There is a row of bony plates that run down its spine that gives it serious character but wasn't good enough to provide protection; and it also had a thin nasal horn that could neither be used for offense of defence because it was deemed to be on the fragile side.
• One feature that seemed to work though, was its scarily long teeth. The Ceratosaurus' upper teeth were so long that when its maw was closed shut, the teeth actually extended all the way past its lower jaw!
• Apparently, this is another rare dinosaur in the book. The bumpy-snouted predator is only known from a relative handful of skeletons; whilst, once upon a time, single quarry contained assorted bones belonging to at least 44 different Allosauruses (the very same site yielded only one Ceratosaurus).
