With decades of experience in manufacturing museum-quality replicas, Safari Ltd's famous Carnegie Collection line has released this figure of the Giganotosaurus. This Cretaceous theropod is related to the Allosaurus, and received a great deal of media attention upon its discovery as being the first theropod known to be larger than the popular Tyrannosaurus Rex. Giganotosaurus achieved notoriety after its appearance in James Gurney's beautifully illustrated "Dinotopia". It's easy to imagine this "Giant Southern Lizard" using its tremendous size to take down huge prehistoric prey.
Made to scale with other animals in the Carnegie Collection, this foot-long Giganotosaurus is appropriately larger than the Tyrannosaurus Rex figure. Since its release, it has been a bestseller, and Giganotosaurus continues to be in high demand today. This figure ships within its original packaging and signature display tags.
