Product Description

This Canadian tyrannosaur is believed to have hunted in packs.
The Carnegie Collection presents this fine figure depicting the Canadian carnivore, Albertosaurus. This animal was a smaller relative of the famed Tyrannosaurus. Albertosaurus is one of the most well-documented species of theropod dinosaurs. A whopping thirty specimens have been found, many of them concentrated in the same area, suggesting a strong social or pack mentality (although the animals may have simply gathered to feed on a large carcass). Convention dictates, for unknown reasons, that the Albertosaurus is grey in color. There is no scientific evidence to support this popular color scheme, other than the possibility that a neutral color may have aided in camouflage. As such, the Carnegie Albertosaurus figure is hand-painted the color of a storm cloud, and has a length exceeding 21 centimeters. This figure also has the rare distinction of being one of the few theropods in the Carnegie line capable of standing entirely on its own two feet, without the aid of a third supporting "tail-leg". Instead, the tail is held straight out and parallel to the ground, making it one of the most accurate depictions of this species available.
