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 iconic Triceratops figurine is of no exception; sculpted true to its characteristically stocky, herbivorous appearance; with elephantine feet and visible muscles controlling its powerful forelimbs for an impeccably realistic moving pose. No dinosaur collection will be complete without the presence of this humble herbivore, who has gained its own cult-like status in the prehistoric world as one of the first dinosaurs that was ever discovered.
TERRIFIC TRICERATOPS FACTS!
• Not even dinosaurs are inflation-proof. In 1997, the average Triceratops skull cost roughly USD2500, but today, fetch prices more than 10 times of that. Talk about investment!
• Despite being an herbivore, the Triceratops had a total of up to 800 teeth, which constantly grew back. Nonetheless, it was incapable of chewing food, as its jaw could not move from side to side.
• Did you know that when the first Triceratops fossils were discovered, it was mistaken for an oversized bison? During the American Gilded Age, paleontologist Othneil Charles Marsh received a pair of fossilized horn fragments which he thought belonged to a bison - only to realize later that he'd in fact discovered a whole new dinosaur species. He eventually named it 'Triceratops', which means Three-Horned Face.
