Product Details

11" Long Baryonyx Replica
by Papo

Named after its prominent claw, the Baryonyx lived during the early Cretaceous period and could grow up to 8 meters long and weighed about 1.2 tons. The Baryonyx was the first known dinosaur to eat fish. This piscivore hunted near the edge of the water using its heavy claw, much like a bear, to fish for dinner. Its jaw was studded with over 80 teeth (more teeth than a T-Rex!) and designed to minimize prey from escaping with its long, narrow but strong crocodile-like snout. The Baryonyx was closely related to three African theropods; Suchomimus, Carcharodontosaurus and the enormous Spinosaurus. Discovered in England by an amateur fossil hunter, William J. Walker in 1983, this newer addition to the dinosaur bestiary has risen in popularity over the years. 

Made of heavy-duty rubber, the Baryonyx has been painstakingly hand-painted, with an extraordinary amount of detail being sculpted and painted. Like many of the Papo-produced carnivorous dinosaur models, it features an articulated jaw.

Papo has been in the business of creating figures for almost 20 years, and maintains dedicated to producing a top of the line product which will stand the test of time, being passed from one generation of inquisitive minds to the next. Safety to them is a central priority, and something that they start looking at even in the initial design phase. All of their model figures are manufactured following strict compliance with international safety rules, are are tested by approved laboratories.
