Torvosaurus



dinosaur picture torvosaurus


Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Sauropsida
  Superorder Dinosauria
  Order Saurischia
  Suborder Theropoda
  Superfamily Spinosauroidea
  Family Megalosauridae
  Genus Torvosaurus
Torvosaurus was a carnivore (meat-eater) that lived in the late Jurassic period, about 144 million years ago. Fossils of the animal were first found in North America (in Dry Mesa Quarry in Colorado), but subsequently have been found in Europe (specifically Portugal).

Torvosaurus is believed to have been the largest Theropod dinosaur living in the Jurassic period. It was about 30 to 36 feet (9 to 11 meters) in length, about 8 feet (2.5 meters) tall at the hips, and weighed at least 2 tons. Scientists believe that Torvosaurus was fairly closely related to the somewhat earlier dinosaur, Megalosaurus

  • FUN FACT: Torvosaurus was the largest European theropod known so far. It is related to the American Torvosaurus tanneri but has differences in dentition and skull shape.
  • AUTHENTICITY: Each prehistoric sculpture has been approved by Anthony Beeson, a well respected expert in palaeoimagery who is also an art librarian, archaeologist and collector, based in the city of Bristol, England.
  • PRODUCT SPECS: Deluxe Torvosaurus measures 9.6" L x 4.9" H making this a relatively large model, but one that can still be held comfortably by the hands of a small child. Sculpted in an acurate pose, it is mounted on an earthen-shaped base to prevent tipping over.
Product Description:
Often found in the same quarries as Allosaurus, albeit in lesser numbers, Torvosaurus had long, deep skulls set with elongated teeth that they presumably put to work on the hides of sauropods. And that's not to mention their short, stout forelimbs which bore a set of three wicked, recurved claws. No complete specimen has yet been found, but the bones discovered so far indicate this thirty-foot long predator prowled the Jurassic floodplains of Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, and, as recently realized, Portugal. Each of the Collecta deluxe models comes with a little plastic palaeontologist know as "Sir Arthur Gauge". Sir Arthur comes complete with pickaxe and binoculars and provides scale for each model. This really allows the size of the Torvosaurus to be appreciated. Each prehistoric figure in the CollectA collection has been approved by archeologist Anthony Beeson, a well-respected expert in paleoimagery. All CollectA models are individually hand crafted to the highest standards and made with the finest and safest phthalate-free, lead-free materials. Create a natural world in miniature with high quality toy replicas from CollectA. Our mission is to educate collectors and to provide the greatest oppportunity for creative play.
