It’s a new year and a new Ceratopsian from our friends at Safari Ltd. And this one’s so colorful it has no trouble standing out from the rest. Their 2019 Styracosaurus is even more striking than last year’s Triceratops and already making a splash on my horned dinosaur shelf. Though many companies have released their own model of this creature, I believe this is one of the best. But don’t take my word for it, see for yourself…
As a kid, I remember playing “dinosaurs” with numerous Marx Dimetrodons – having no idea the animal wasn’t a dinosaur at all. This creature, notable for the large sail on its back, is actually a member of the synapsid family; a group of reptiles that lived over 270 million years ago and attributed to having mammal-like features. Though there’ been numerous models of the animal since, Safari Ltd. has just delivered one of the best!
