Dinosaur figure Giganotosaurus with a very realistic and durable design.
Giganotosaurus: (‘giant’ + ‘back’ + ‘lizard’) was a large Theropod dinosaur. The animal was a carnivore (meat-eater), and lived in South America during the early Cenomanian age of the Late Cretaceous period, approximately 99.6 to 97 million years ago.
Giganotosaurus was one of the largest known terrestrial carnivores, about a total length of 12 to 13m, a skull of 1.53 to 1.80m in length, and a weight of 4.2 to 13.8tons. Some researchers have found the animal to be larger than Tyrannosaurus, which has historically been considered the largest theropod. The skull was low, with rough and wrinkled nasal bones and a ridge-like crest on the lacrimal bone in front of the eye. The front of the lower jaw was flattened, and had a downwards projecting process (or "chin") at the tip. The teeth were compressed sideways and had serrations. The neck was strong and the pectoral girdle proportionally small. Giganotosaurus is thought to have been homeothermic (a type of "warm-bloodedness"), with a metabolism between that of a mammal and a reptile, which would have enabled fast growth. It may have been relatively slow-moving, with a suggested running speed of 14 metres per second (50 km/h; 31 mph). It would have been capable of closing its jaws quickly, capturing and bringing down prey by delivering powerful bites. The "chin" may have helped in resisting stress when a bite was delivered against prey.
Giganotosaurus is thought to have been the apex predator of its ecosystem, and it may have fed on juvenile sauropod dinosaurs.
This dinosaur measures approximately 21 cm from nose to tail and is approximately 16 cm tall.
It has a moveable jaw also, for more interactive play.
