Dinosaur Statues for the Garden or Yard!
I have focused on Dinosaurs in the past. I talked about some kids toys that communicated with each other and I did a post about some 3D dinosaur cookie cutters! Today I am going A LOT BIGGER!!! Today lets talk about some HUGE Dinosaurs that you can Buy!
If you are planning on having the Most Amazing Dinosaur Garden around you need to have some Dinosaurs! So I went Dinosaur Hunting to find them for you! Be warned these Dinosaurs don’t come cheap. But you really wouldn’t want a cheap dinosaur in your yard anyway would you? These dinosaurs are cast in High Quality resin and each are hand panted!
So here they are in no particular order.
Jurassic – Sized Velociraptor Dinosaur Statue
Velociraptor (/vɨˈlɒsɨræptər/; meaning ‘swift seizer’) is a genus of dromaeosauridtheropoddinosaur that lived approximately 75 to 71 million years ago during the later part of the CretaceousPeriod. Two species are currently recognized, although others have been assigned in the past. The type species is V. mongoliensis; fossils of this species have been discovered in Mongolia. A second species, V. osmolskae, was named in 2008 for skull material from Inner Mongolia, China.
Jurassic – Sized T-Rex Dinosaur Statue
Tyrannosaurus (/tɨˌrænəˈsɔrəs/ or /taɪˌrænəˈsɔrəs/; meaning “tyrant lizard”, from Greektyrannos (τύραννος) meaning “tyrant,” and sauros (σαῦρος) meaning “lizard”) is a genus of coelurosauriantheropoddinosaur. The speciesTyrannosaurus rex (rex meaning “king” in Latin), commonly abbreviated to T. rex, is a fixture in popular culture. It lived throughout what is now western North America, at the time an island continent termed Laramidia, with a much wider range than other tyrannosaurids. Fossils are found in a variety of rock formations dating to the Maastrichtian age of the upper CretaceousPeriod, 67 to 65.5 million years ago. It was among the last non-avian dinosaurs to exist before the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event.
Jurassic – Sized Allosaurus Dinosaur Statue
Allosaurus/ˌælɵˈsɔrəs/ is a genus of large theropoddinosaur that lived 155 to 150 million years ago during the late Jurassicperiod (Kimmeridgian to early Tithonian). The name “Allosaurus” means “different reptile”. It is derived from the Greek ἄλλος/allos (“different, other”) and σαῦρος/sauros (“lizard / generic reptile”). The first fossil remains that can definitely be ascribed to this genus were described in 1877 by paleontologist Othniel Charles Marsh, and it became known as Antrodemus. As one of the first well-known theropod dinosaurs, it has long attracted attention outside of paleontological circles. Indeed, it has been a top feature in several films and documentaries about prehistoric life.
Jurassic – Sized Parasaurolophus Dinosaur Statue
Parasaurolophus (/ˌpærəsɔːˈrɒləfəs/PARR-ə-saw-ROL-ə-fəs or /ˌpærəˌsɔrəˈloʊfəs/PARR-ə-SAWR-ə-LOH-fəs; meaning “near crested lizard” in reference to Saurolophus) is a genus of ornithopoddinosaur that lived in what is now North America during the Late CretaceousPeriod, about 76.5–73 million years ago. It was a herbivore that walked both as a biped and a quadruped. Three species are recognized: P. walkeri (the type species), P. tubicen, and the short-crested P. cyrtocristatus. Remains are known from Alberta (Canada), and New Mexico and Utah (USA). The genus was first described in 1922 by William Parks from a skull and partial skeleton in Alberta.
Boris The Brontosaurus Garden Statue
Apatosaurus/əˌpætɵˈsɔrəs/, also known by the popular but scientifically redundant synonymBrontosaurus, is a genus of sauropoddinosaur that lived from about 154 to 150 million years ago, during the JurassicPeriod (Kimmeridgian and early Tithonian ages). It was one of the largest land animals known to have ever existed, with an average length of 23 m (75 ft) and a mass of at least 16 metric tons (18 short tons).Fossils of these animals have been found in Nine Mile Quarry and Bone Cabin Quarry in Wyoming and at sites in Colorado, Oklahoma and Utah, present in stratigraphic zones 2-6.
Here are a couple of Extra things to add to your Amazing Dinosaur Garden Sculptures.
Now you have 5 Amazing Dinosaur Sculptures for your yard, why not go a little further and add some bones!
Check out this Jr. T-Rex Skull, it has been cast from one of the most important Paleontological Finds to date!
“Tinker is one of the most scientifically significant and most exciting Trex skeletons ever found” – Dr. Robert T. Bakker, Senior Scientist, Dinamation International Society.
This is probably something that you wouldn’t want to just put out in your back yard since this is a museum quality piece, and should be treated as such.This skull is cast from “Tinker”, a juvinile Tyrannosaurus Rex. According to Paleontologist Dr. Robert T. Bakker, “Tinker” is one of the most scientifically significant and most exciting T-Rex skeletons ever found, and one of the most important dinosaur specimens from any age and any locale. It was the very fist “Most Complete” skeleton of a young T-Rex ever found, and because of “Tinker” paleontologists had the opportunity to study the way young a T-Rex chewed its food, and study the athletic prowess and build of a juvenile T-Rex. Because of this land mark discovery we also had the first look at unlocking some of the social habits of Dinosaurs such as the parent/child bonds of the mighty Tyrannosaurus Rex!
“Tinker the Kid-Rex’ soon will become one of the very best known fossils among dino fans of all ages.” – Dr. Robert T. Bakker, Senior Scientist, Dinamation International Society.
Here is a special bonus for anyone who wants a life sized DRAGON!
This is not meant to be put up on dispaly out doors though.
Hansa has a reputation for heirloom-quality, individually handcrafted, plush reproductions of the worlds most loved animals, real and mythical. This Grand Dragon is 8 feet tall and 9.5 feet long, and it makes an enormous statement where it lands. It is truly a soft sculpture work of art! Artisans hand sew the Dragon “inside out”, an old world tradition that results in the minimization of seams, and the Dragon’s body is carefully “sculpted” to create “musculature” and “features” like movement in a walking or sitting position that are unique. Stuffing emphasizes careful attention to the placement of the highest quality man-made materials.
This Dinosaur statue is suitable for home, garden, restaurant or hotel.
