Spinosaurus is named for its vertebral spines. These incredible spines were more than 6 feet long! Paleontologists cannot seem to agree on either the function or appearance of this flamboyant adaptation. However, it certainly is the hallmark of this extreme theropod dinosaur.
This brightly colored dinosaur makes an excellent child's toy. There are several Vinyl Models available in the Favorite Collection line of soft bodied toys. Mr. Kazunari Araki, a famous Japanese sculptor, supervised the the production of this line of Favorite Collection models.
