Crew members at The whole lot Dinosaur are busy making ready for the arrival of the brand new Beasts of the Mesozoic figures. They’re wave three of the tyrannosaur collection and the brand new figures will embody the Asian tyrannosaur Alectrosaurus (Alectrosaurus olseni).
The brand new tyrannosaur figures embody:
- Eotyrannus lengi
- Moros intrepidus
- Albertosaurus sarcophagus
- Gorgosaurus libratus
- Daspletosaurus torosus
- Tarbosaurus bataar
- Alectrosaurus olseni
To view the vary of Beasts of the Mesozoic fashions in inventory: Beasts of the Mesozoic Fashions.
Alectrosaurus is thought from hindlimb fossils and fragmentary components of the hips. A lot of the ascribed fossil materials was found in the course of the Third Asiatic Expedition to Inside Mongolia (China), by the American Museum of Pure Historical past. It was formally described in 1933 (Gilmore).
The fossil materials got here from deposits related to the Iren Dabasu Formation. The age of the strata stays unsure. Relative relationship utilizing the plentiful ostracod fossils counsel a Late Campanian to Maastrichtian age. Nonetheless, the vertebrate assemblage represents fauna that point out that the deposits are a lot older maybe relationship from the Turonian faunal stage. This is able to counsel that Alectrosaurus lived round 90 mya (million years in the past).

Evaluation of the limb bones and their ratios (femur to tibia), point out that this dinosaur was a quick runner. It was most likely a pursuit predator. The burden of A. olseni has been estimated to be round 600 kilograms.
An The whole lot Dinosaur Scale Drawing
As a part of our preparations for the arrival of the brand new Beasts of the Mesozoic tyrannosaurs, we’ve got commissioned an Alectrosaurus scale drawing. This illustration shall be included into the free reality sheet that we are going to ship out with the Alectrosaurus olseni mannequin.
