Product Description:
CollectA's finely detailed replica of Torosaurus is lifelike down to its dramatic bony frill and jutting horns. The name of the Torosaurus means ''perforated lizard'' and comes from the large openings in its frill. It lived 68 - 66 million years ago in North America. The dinosaur's massive skull alone measured up to 9.1 feet in length, and its body could have grown to be as long as 30 feet. Some scientists now theorize that the Torosaurus, with its larger, perforated frill, may be a fully mature Triceratops, but no conclusions have been reached. The Torosaurus was herbivorous, able to chew tough plants and ferns that grew during the Cretaceous Period. This beautifully sculpted, collectible figure from our Prehistoric Life Collection measures 5.5''L x 3.1''H.
