Chap Mei dinosaurs come in plenty of different packages – this Suchomimus came in ‘Dinosaur Safari’ packaging as parts of a play set, unique (as far as I’m aware) to the Early Learning Centre in the UK.
This Suchomimus by kaiyodo is easily the best on currently available.
Ever since its discovery in 1997, Suchomimus has never had any difficulty shying away from the public eye, even appearing in the Warpath: Jurassic Park video game only 11 months after it was officially named in November 1998.
PNSO delivered one last surprise for collectors at the very end of 2022, delivering their 67th entry into the Prehistoric Animal lineup with a highly anticipated, superb new rendition of the most complete spinosaurid to date.
The 1990s and 2000s were a boon for paleontology in the southern hemisphere.
The first time I ever heard of Suchomimus was when I saw Jurassic Park 3 and the character Billy said, “It’s a super-predator: Suchomimus, “then Billy uses his hand and mimics the length of the snout and finishes by saying, “the snout.” The Suchomimus, which means “crocodile mimic” definitely had a pronounced and interesting snout that in a quick glance resembles today crocodiles and alligators, though in reality there are many structural differences.
