Schleich - Giganotosaurus Juvenile
Schleich Juvenile Giganotosaurus Review:
Schleich currently offers two versions of Giganotosaurus figures - this 15017 Giganotosaurus is the "juvenile" version they offer. This is figure is part of the only Giganotosaurus "sets" currently available.
We like the fact that the Schleich Juvenile Giganotosaurus has a "parent' Giganotosaurus that can be purchased separately. It is nice to have a matching set in terms of design and colors. That said, we prefer the adult Schleich Giganotosaurus to this Juvenile version. This is a fine figure - we just prefer the other adult figure. The details on the adult figure are sharp - possibly as it is larger = more room to develop the details. Paint scheme is similar to the adult version - just doesn't seem as sharp. Good figure as part of the set. If you can only get one Schleich Giganotosaurus - we prefer the adult version.

Giganotosaurus Dinosaur Facts:
Giganotosaurus is a genus of theropod dinosaur (hollow bones and 3 toed limbs) that lived in what is now Argentina, during the early Cenomanian age of the Late Cretaceous period, approximately 99.6 to 97 million years ago. One Giganotosaurus fossil was in 1993 and was almost 70% complete. Giganotosaurus translates as "giant southern lizard". The genus attracted much interest and became part of a heated scientific debate about the maximum sizes of theropod dinosaurs. Giganotosaurus is thought to have been one of the largest theropod dinosaurs but it is difficult to estimate its size reliably. It is therefore impossible to determine with certainty whether it was larger than Tyrannosaurus, for example, which has been considered the largest theropod historically. Giganotosaurus has been compared to an oversized version of the well-known genus Allosaurus.
