All ichthyosaurus reviews

Carnotaurus with Ichthyosaurus (Jurassic World Hero Mashers by Hasbro)

2.3 (4 votes)
Time for a second helping of Hero Mashers! This time we’ll be looking at Carnotaurus, the mighty “meat-eating bull” of South America, and Ichthyosaurus, the English “fish lizard” that helped make Mary Anning a legend among paleontologists.

The Carnotaurus is made up of ten parts. Once assembled, it ends up being articulated at the neck, shoulders, hips, knees, and two sections of the tail.

Most kids love dinosaurs, this is a fact. Other prehistoric creatures too but as we know many non-dinosaurs are still called dinosaurs, so the umbrella term here is dinosaurs. Kids love dinosaurs. Most adults however end up losing this interest, it’s a shame really. Who decided that dinosaurs were kid stuff anyway?

Ichthyosaurus is one of the most iconic fossil marine reptiles, being a milestone in vertebrate paleontology since it was discovered by Mary Anning, and it was subject of a German poem about the lower Jurassic (“Der Ichthyosaurus” by Viktor von Scheffel, 1856).

Ladies and gentlemen, I present the last Invicta model that needed a review on this very blog. Over the past decade or two, these models have been a staple for our community as they are the very first museum quality scale prehistoric models to ever hit store shelves.

Ichthyosaurus-Leptonectes(Stuttgart NHM, by Bullyland)

Ichthyosaurs are a well known extinct marine reptile.  They first appeared in the Triassic, became very diverse by the Jurassic, and then disappeared during the Cretaceous.  The ichthyosaur fossil record is well known and abundant with over 102 valid species.  They have been considered a great example of convergent evolution, especially since many people compare them to dolphins and tunas. 

Prehistoric Animals (Panini, review part 2)

Panini prehistoric animals and dinosaur toys

In part 1 of this review we looked at 12 dinosaur toys (and one pterosaur) from Panini’s Prehistoric Animals line. In part 2 we pick up where we left off to complete the full set of 24 toys.

Figure numbers 13 to 15 are a trio of marine reptiles, and their dark blue colour works very well for aquatic animals.

Review by Cordylus, photos and figure captions by Plesiosauria
This is truely a marine reptile lover’s dream come true. For years, Nothosaurus, Metriorhynchus, Basilosaurus and the like were all hard to find and expensive (if there were any to even be found) – until now.
Last september the dinosaur collecting community was stunned by the toys safari ltd was going to release the next year; now, most safari dinosaurs so far this year have been released.
