Safari Ltd. Archaeopteryx Review:Awesome feathered beast from Safari Ltd. Model includes multiple types of feathers on different areas of the body. The head, neck, and breast bear what look like fuzzy, pin-feathers transitioning to regular feathers on the body and wings. Wing feathers are beautiful with the black highlights on the tips and between some of the larger feathers.
We most love the purple / blue sheen feathers on the back of this figure. Really distinguishes the figure from most other dinosaurs / prehistoric models.
Feet and wing (hand) talons are well done and aggressive looking. Head is well shaped with semi-stunned looks on its face. Overall a great figure !
Archaeopteryx Information:Archaeopteryx shook the scientific world when it was announced in 1861. This small crow-sized creature had large feathers but also retained primitive reptilian features including sharp teeth, hands, and a long bony tail. This missing link between reptiles and birds helped to shape our understanding of dinosaur evolution. To this day, Archaeopteryx is still the most ancient fossil bird ever found, and one of the most famous fossils in the world. It lived in Germany during the late Jurassic, 150 million years ago.
