This miniature display includes a small social group of Hypsilophodon, one of the most common animals of the Jurassic. Since they were small and had no armaments, these herbivores likely relied on their powerful legs to sprint away from danger. The base can also be connected to the Williamsonia plant diorama (sold separately).

"A problem with producing scale models of dinosaurs are the many important but small creatures that were a prominent part of any prehistoric landscape but that have been too small to realistically be commercially produced for sale in retail outlets as individual figures. It has been my wish for some time to solve this problem and with this in mind in 2012 I have designed and CollectA starts a second innovative new series entitled Dinosaur Families featuring family or clan groups of small dinosaurs in scale with the larger animals in the range. I have chosen Hypsilophodon, one of my favorite “British” dinosaurs to commence the series and, by request, the newly discovered Ceratopsian Koreaceratops. The figures are presented in family groups on landscaped bases also ornamented with an example of prehistoric flora." -Anthony Beeson, Paleontological Consultant for CollectA
