  Genus Ouranosaurus
Ouranosaurus was a plant-eating dinosaur that lived in the early Cretaceous period, about 115 to 100 million years ago. Its fossils have been found in Niger in Africa, and its name, which means "brave monitor lizard" was chosen by the French paleontologist, Philippe-Taquet in 1976.

Ouranosaurus was 23 feet (7 meters) long, and probably weighed around 4 tons.

Ouranosaurus has long thick spines on its back and tail, and for many years scientists believed that these supported a large fin (sometimes also called "sail") that was covered with skin, similar to the fin found on Spinosaurus. It was thought that this fin was probably used for temperature regulation: the animal could face it towards or away from the sun, depending on whether it needed to heat up or cool down.

Close examination of Ouranosaurus however suggests that whatever was on its back may have been quite different from the fin on Spinosaurus. In fact, many scientists now believe that the spines on Ouranosaurus back are more likely to have supported a hump (similar to a modern bison's hump) than a sail. If this was the case, the hump may perhaps have been used to store food and water (like a camel's hump).

Others traveled in large herds to stay safe. Bold, full-color illustrations, easy-to-read charts and maps, and interesting facts take readers back to a time when bird-footed dinosaurs walked the earth. This book supports common core standards.

  • FUN FACT: Ouranosaurus means "Brave Lizard." Its most interesting feature was a huge back sail. This has been explained as a heat regulator or a base for a camel-like hump to store nourishment.
  • AUTHENTICITY: Each prehistoric sculpture has been approved by Anthony Beeson, a well respected expert in palaeoimagery who is also an art librarian, archaeologist and collector, based in the city of Bristol, England.
  • PRODUCT SPECS: Ouranosaurus measures 5.7" L x 2.6" H and is portrayed in a quadrupedal stance displaying its rather long front limbs.
Product Description:
CollectA's detailed replica of the Ouranosaurus is lifelike down to the wrinkles in its raised tail and the folds in its dorsal sail. The herbivorous dinosaur dates from the Cretaceous period, about 110 million years ago. Based on fossils found in Nigeria, paleontologists say the Ouranosaurus grew to be approximately 27 feet long. Scientists still debate the purpose of the ''sail'' on the creature's back. Was it used to regulate the dinosaur's temperature, or was it used to attract other Ouranosaurus? This beautifully sculpted, collectible figure from our Prehistoric Life Collection measures 5.7''L x 2.6''H. Each prehistoric figure in our collection has been approved by archeologist Anthony Beeson, a well-respected expert in paleoimagery. All CollectA models are individually hand crafted to the highest standards and made with the finest and safest phthalate-free, lead-free materials. Create a natural world in miniature with high quality toy replicas from CollectA. Our mission is to educate collectors and to provide the greatest opportunity for creative play.
