Torosaurus by CollectA
Torosaurus is a dinosaur that is very similar to the Triceratops. The name Torosaurus is frequently translated as "bull lizard" from the Latin noun taurus or Spanish toro but much more likely is derived from the Greek verb toreo, "to pierce, perforate". The large frill of the Torosaurus has windows or holes in the bone and of course their horns are designed to pierce!
CollectA design beautiful and realistic figurines that inspire children's imaginations and enrich their natural play drive.
This life-like figurine measures 15cm x 8 cm
A few fun Torosaurus facts:
- Lived in a terrestrial habitat
- Diet: herbivore
- Reproduced by laying eggs
- 8 different specimens have been found by paleontologists
- There is some controversy around the Torosaurus and the Triceratops! Some think that the Torosaurus was the mature grown up version of the Triceratops.
