It’s been a while since my last model spotlight which featured Safari Ltd’s beautiful Woolly Rhinoceros. Now I’m back to review one of its equal furry cousins, Elasmotherium – a hulking behemoth the size of a mammoth! In celebration of this immense beast, CollectA has unleashed an equally impressive model and I honestly had no idea how big this sucker was until I saw it with my own eyes! So let’s dive in…
A Woolly Rhinoceros would feel right at home in Chicago these days. With yet another round of subzero temps, I was reminded of the value of a nice, warm coat. Back in the Pleistocene, many animals adapted to frigid temps by growing impressive ones of their own, including an extinct species of rhino that’s the topic of today’s blog. As you know, I’m crazy about modern day elephants and rhinos, so it’s always a pleasure adding models of their ancient relatives to my collection. Though Woolly Mammoths get their fair share of attention, Safari Ltd. has shifted their focus to a couple of lesser-knowns such as the 2018 Mastodon and a brand new Woolly Rhino for this year. So let’s take a look at their latest “fuzzy” creation.
