Don’t you just want to bring him home and name him Fido?
Much more gentle than the carnivorous beasts and famous gigantic terrors of the prehistoric world such as the Tyrannosaurus Rex or Velociraptor, the Parasaurolophus (that’s a mouthful) was a kinder creature, who fed on tasty vegetation rather than flesh.
This figure portrays a true-to-form representation of the Parasaurolophus, and has adorably amazing detail in its design. Sitting next to his dinosaur companions, the Parasaurolophus (Fido) makes an excellent addition to your dinosaur toy collection.
