Product Details

6.5" Long Dimetrodon Dinosaur Replica
by Papo

Commonly mistaken as a dinosaur, Dimetrodon actually predates the arrival of the first known dinosaur of the Triassic period, having gone extinct some 40 million years prior. And despite its strikingly reptile-like appearance, it is more closely related to modern mammals than any living reptilian group, despite not being a direct ancestor of any mammals. Its most recognizable feature is the large sail that extends upwards along the spine, and thought to have been used either for thermoregulation or as a sexual display to attract mates.

Dimetrodon has been crafted of heavy-duty rubber and painstakingly painted by hand, with an extraordinary amount of detail being put into the sculpting and painting process. It features an articulated lower jaw, allowing the mouth to be opened and closed.

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.
