Description

Affordable, but none the less beautfully modelled and finished range of dinosaur models from CollectA brand. Hand-painted and finely detailed. A great range to collect for any dinosaur fanatic!

Borealopelta sported some serious armour — thick bony plates and lethal shoulder spines that protected it from attack. But what was out there to attack it?

When it comes to dinos during that time, if you’re thinking Jurassic Park, think again. When Borealopelta lumbered around North America 110 million years ago, more recognizable dinos like the Tyrannosaurus rex or Triceratops didn’t exist. In fact, they wouldn’t be around for another 40 million years or so! (A smaller, lighter ancestor of T. rex was found during this period, but it weighed only 90 kilograms and was as tall as a human — not exactly the fierce predator it would come to be.)

Different dinos were on the hunt during the Cretaceous, including the Utahraptor, a 450-kilogram, highly intelligent and incredibly fast species that probably lived in groups and may have hunted in packs. But Borealopelta’s biggest threat would likely have been Acrocanthosaurus, the top predator at the time, which boasted powerful arms, clawed fingers and enormous blades for teeth.
