Brighstoneus - age-of-dinosaurs-popular-sizes


14.8cm x 4.8cm
Period:Lower Cretaceous

Named after the village of Brighstone on the Isle of Wight

Fun Facts:
  • Fossils discovered in 1978 thought to represent an Iguanodon were re-examined and the Brighstoneus genus erected in 2021. This dinosaur had a prominent, bulbous snout. The patterning on the model would have helped to break up this herbivore's outline and camouflage it as Brighstoneus moved through the dimly lit understorey of the forest.
