The CollectA Temnodontosaurus Platyodon - Birthing figure captures the dramatic moment of birth. The figure depicts the Temnodontosaurus with its characteristic long, streamlined body and powerful flippers, designed for swift and agile swimming.

The birthing scene is a unique aspect of this model, showing a baby Temnodontosaurus emerging from the mother's body, which emphasizes the live-bearing nature of these reptiles. This dynamic and lifelike portrayal not only adds visual interest but also serves as an educational piece.

The large eyes, which were adapted for hunting in the low light conditions of deep waters, are highlighted. 

The CollectA Temnodontosaurus Platyodon measures approximately in inches:
7 L x 1.7 W x 2.5 H.

One of the most distinctive features of Temnodontosaurus platyodon is its large eyes, which could reach up to 8 inches in diameter. These enormous eyes suggest that Temnodontosaurus had excellent vision, which would have been crucial for hunting in the deep, murky waters where light penetration is minimal. This adaptation indicates that Temnodontosaurus was likely an active predator, relying on its keen eyesight to locate and capture prey such as fish, squid, and other marine organisms.

Temnodontosaurus had a streamlined, torpedo-shaped body that facilitated efficient and powerful swimming. Its limbs had evolved into flippers, with the front flippers being particularly large and strong, aiding in propulsion through the water. The tail was equipped with a well-developed fluke, which provided additional thrust.

Suitable for Ages 3 and Up.

    Great icthyosaur

    The figure is quite nicely detailed for how small it is and the blue grey coloration is very befitting of a marine animal.
