Megalosaurus Bucklandii

Brand new from Prehistoric is this museum grade replica of the dinosaur that started it all... Megalosaurus. Remains discovered date back to the 17th century. Megalosaurus was, in 1824, the first genus of non-avian dinosaur to be validly named. The type species is Megalosaurus bucklandii, named in 1827. In 1842, Megalosaurus was one of three genera on which Richard Owen based his Dinosauria. On Owen's directions a model was made as one of the Crystal Palace Dinosaurs which greatly increased the public interest for prehistoric reptiles.

The Bones, (Cast from lightweight polyester resin) are mounted as per the original display today.
