Schleich Amargasaurus Review:
The Schleich Amargasaurus was introduced in Jan, 2022. We really like the Schleich Amargasaurus figure. As the second cheapest Amargasaurus figure available it represents a good deal for the money.
Spikes on the back are a good combination of individual spikes and "sail" type. Well made so they will not bend like on some of the other figures. Deep texturing on the sides of this figure. We would rank this as the most textured figure and with the dark undercoat - the textured grooves really stand out. This is a good figure and warrants your consideration.

Amargasaurus Dinosaur Facts:
Amargasaurus is a genus of sauropod dinosaurs (long necks, long tails, relatively small heads, and four thick legs) that lived in what is now Argentina about 125 million years ago. The Amargasaurus is one of the smaller sauropods – measuring only 30 feet in length and weighing an estimated 2-3 tons.
The most distinctive feature of the Amargasaurus was two parallel rows of tall spines down its neck and back. There is a debate among scientists as to whether they were individual spikes or if they were connected by some sort of “skin” to form a “sail”. The Amargasaurus spikes may have provided protection from predators or (if covered by skin) a way to dissipate heat) – or a combination of the two functions. The tallest of the Amargasaurus spikes may have reached as high as 24 inches.
The Amargasaurus was likely a slow-moving animal. While its legs were think and one would think strong, the relative shortness of the legs (relative to the size of its body) likely limited the speed at which it could walk.
Our knowledge of the Amargasaurus is limited by the fact that only ONE fossil specimen has been discovered. Found in Argentina in 1984, it provides most the information scientists have inferred about the Amargasaurus.
For the “gamers” out there, the Amagarsaurus is the dinosaur tamed in the game Lost Island and the Amagarsaurus ARK must be tamed to advance in the game
