Velociraptor vs. Protoceratops - 'Fighting Dinosaurs' - Fossil Replica 
Detailed Images
During the Polish-Mongolian paleontological expedition to the Gobi Desert of Mongolia, in 1971, an articulated Velociraptor mongoliensis skeleton was found with hands and feet grasping a Protoceratops andrewsi. Evidence suggests that these two dinosaurs were indeed killed simultaneously, smothered by sand, possibly during a dune collapse. The active predatory nature of velociraptor is graphically illustrated as it grasps its prey with its forelimbs, while kicking and raking the belly and chest with its hindlimbs. Protoceratops was discovered in a semi-erect stance with the Velociraptor’s right forelimb clutched between its jaws in a desperate fight for survival. Their discovery reveals a snapshot in time, of a life and death struggle, between these ancient adversaries.

Velociraptor vs. Protoceratops is a re-creation of the original discovery in Mongolia. The skeleton casts we used, though more complete, are positioned in poses very similar to those of the original scene

Ideal for an exciting and dramatic stand-alone exhibit, or use it for a unique children's paleo dig.
