PostSubject: My little collection of dinoes   Tue Apr 26, 2011 9:22 am

Slowly I have begun to find an interest in Dinosaurs, only I think I will never be able to remember their names scratch

I like the “Museum-line” from Bullyland, because of the tag, that has a good, little description for beginners.
Also they are relatively easy to get hold of on Ebay here in Europe, and even the retired ones are not so darned expensive Laughing

So far my collection is very small and totally random. But I like them very much and would like to show them to you.

The first one is the one I love the most. It the very rare procynosuchus. And then it is a fantastic gift from Roger .
The procynosuchus was about the size of a dachshound and was one of the first ancestors of mammals. It lived app 250 million years ago


Archaeopteryx. It was the size of a raven, and lived app 150 mill years ago.


The Arizonasaurus was a swift predator that lived app 250 mill years ago


Dimatrodon meat eater that lived app 280 mill years ago:


Iguanodon, a large plant eater that lived app 120 mill years ago. The “Thumbs” were a sort of thorn, probably used for defence.


Liliensternus. I love this figuere. 220 mill years ago these elegant creatures were probably hunting in prides :


Parasaurolophus, Decendant of the iguanodon, a gentle meateater.


Paratypothorax , covered with thick bont plates. Omnivorous. Lived app 210 mill years ago :


Plateosaurus. Plant eater that lived app 210 mill years ago.


Pteranodon Stenberli, I think the one to the right should have had a fish in his beak. They lived app 114 - 75 mill years ago:


Stegosaurus, app 195 mill years ago this creture was eating soft plant material. Its brain was no lareger than a walnut, so it was good that he only had to bend his head and chew Wink :


Velociraptor, I have read him described as a “ ferocious ballet-dancer with daggers on his feet”


I hope I got the data right, as mentioned I am a total beginner Rolling Eyes

Fabulous collection - I'd like to have the procynosuchus as a pet, he looks rather like a dog Very Happy
You'd better not look at Papo's dinos Shocked

Yes, that procynosuchus could be a lovely pet Very Happy
I can just see you walking around with him at your heels cheers

Ooooh, yes, the Papo-dinoes I love you I did actually buy the pachyrhinosaurus ( A patched-up rhino ? Shocked) on Ebay, but then it turned out that the seller wanted 17 Euros to send him !!!!! Fortunately she was willing to cancel that deal Embarassed

Does anybody have the Papo pachyrhinosaurus ? Is he big ?
Perhaps some day if I win in the lottery Wink

Thanks, Robertbert flower

No, he is not very big, - why on earth did she then want that much to send it ????? Shocked
Perhaps she wanted to keep the wonderful figuere for herself Laughing Laughing

I don't have him either. He's not very big, Christophe made a review of him a while back http://sts-forum.forumieren.de/t147-here-comes-the-pachyrhinosaurus

Awesome collection! These are in my opinion Bullyland's best prehistorics - far superior to their later models. The only current one I really like is the velociraptor, and apprently I'm one of very few who do!

Madly jealous about the Archies, BTW - they're so cool, and shockingly rare as models. Would love to get my hands on one, but I guess they're long discontinued.

I got the archies together with some other stuff from Bullyland, - I was probably lucky ?

I also like the current Velociraptor !!
It seems Bullyland and the Museum in Stuttgard have changed their mind about how it looked Shocked



BTW, I read in a crime novel that there has been found a fossile of a T.Rex baby with feathers, is that fiction or could it be right ?????

The feathered dinos are my favourite ^^

About the T-rex with feathers, I think that could be possible since scientist have found fossils with feathers markings on them, I recently saw a nature´s programm about that.

WOW! A cute, fuzzy T-rex What a Face
But I don`t find it strange, - the bald dinoes look kind of weird Rolling Eyes
Yes, the Velociraptor with feathers certainly looks more "real". It is fun to see them both, I think Laughing

Thank you, Sylvia flower

This guy, a pteranodon, was flying in a bush in my garden Laughing



Perhaps he also really had feathers, - he does look a bit bald Shocked

I also got a jellyfish, - a Medusa. As far as I know it completes the little collection af Bullyland`s so called fossiles.
Of course they are not dinoes, - and surely NEVER had feathers, but there they are Wink

Nice photo of your garden! It looks even pteranodons are happy there!:) sunny
I think the best option for dinosaurs would be using protofeathers, it works like fur or even feathers! But something is saying me that some large dinos have peafows tails! drunken
The only thing I'm sure about dinosaurs is that they had bones! :)

Laughing I am not so sure, I had to take the Pteranodon away from the bush, - there was two little nosy Siamese kitties who had discovered this funny bird cat cat Laughing

Friends, I am really, really happy you like mý collection. It is quite coincidence that I started with Bullyland, but now I have begun, I have become used to the way they look even if some other brands are nicer and I originally collect Schleich drunken

Great collection of Bullyland jewels Susanne. You still have to find the fabulous Edaphosaurus and the so rare mastodonsaurus Cool

Some Bullyland are REALLY great and at last more accurate than SCHLEICH. Believe me it's a good start cheers

These figures are great Christophe, it is incredible the diversity of prehistoric species Bullyland lauched and some are really great! This frog is probabily the only ever made, unless a Japanese brand did it! :)

The Elefantosaurusses elephant from Bullyland, - unfortunately I am not a millionaire Crying or Very sad

But I am getting one from Safari, an ambelodon, I hope he is nice also bounce bounce cheers

The first one is an edaphosaurus, it was a Permian planteater and a cousin of the well known dimetrodon. Those are pelycosaurs and not dinos, they are indeed closer to us than to dinos because they are synapsids like us.

The second one is a mastodonsaurus, which was a Triassic amphibian. This frog cousin had a head which reached 1,25 meter long so the whole animals would reached 4 to 5 meters long What a Face

Don't worry for the price of the Bully deinotherium... The Mastodonsaurus is also very rare and expensive drunken

It is all very confusing, - a mastodont is a sort of elefant with too many tusks, and a mastodonsaurus is an enormous frog alien scratch scratch

And "-odon-" means something with teeth, saurus is Lizard, and none of them are lizards, and a frog has no teeth (?) ... affraid

A frog has no teeth BUt a mastodonsaurus had a lot of teeth. It was not a frog, it was a big amphibian.. With teeth What a Face

Some animals were called saurus when they were discovered and the finder first thought they were reptiles but they were not.

It's the story of the mastodonsaurus, which was a big amphibian and of the basilosaurus which was a very big mammal

First my gratulations on your very nice Bullyland pre-historics, this way i can't make a mistake i guess, haha... Wink

About those names...
I know this from my tropical fish and stuff like that...
The name that was given first, is normally the name that stays, that means, the name of the species, the genus, so the name of the family can change, if there are new insights into the matter...
An example:Panthera tigris, the tiger...
Panthera is the family, tigris the species, eventually with a third name, the subspecies, so for the Siberian tiger: Panthera tigris altaica
If it is found out, that the tiger doesn't belong into this family, the first name Panthera will be changed by any scientist in an official article, but if this is accepted by the rest of the scientists is another question... Rolling Eyes scratch
But the rest of the name stays, only possibly slightly changed to the first name, if it is female, male or neuter...
Another example for this...
I do have a fishspecies from Central-America here, that was known as Vieja synspila.
But as the family name changed into Paratheraps, the species name changed into synspilus, which fits to the first familyname...
Is it still understandable??? scratch study
Anyway, there are strict regulations in naming species, and this has to make things clear, but if a name changes a lot, a lot of people get lost in the matter of course.
As i do write national- and international articles about tropical fish, i have to keep up, which is not always easy as you may understand, so how can we aspect from normal people that they understand the names of the pre-historic creatures all of the time... Rolling Eyes
But it helps if you are really interested, and when you do speak some Latin languages, like French, Spanish, Portugese, Italian, Romanian or Latin.
This way you can recognise lots of names by the meaning of them, like Susanne did before with donto as teeth... Wink
But to make things more complicated, the names of species are taken from the Latin or Greek, with a lot of variations in that, so forget it, if you are not into it, because you will loose track, haha... geek

affraid affraid affraid

I did have Latin and French at school, - but that is 40 years ago farao Laughing Laughing

And it seems to me that many of those dinoes have greek names scratch geek

So I make "idiot rules", like "Dilopia", - ear-lope.
Or Parasaurolophus, - something with a parasol on the head that is a lope, - but then I remember wrong and get Paralopusaurus... so I just call him a parasollosaurus Laughing Laughing Laughing geek clown
