Wales’ very own Dinosaur!!!

dracoraptor hanigani

Wales’ very own Dinosaur!!! Dracoraptor hanigani: New Species of Dinosaur Discovered in Wales

dinosaur-dracoraptor-hanigani

A partial skeleton of the new dinosaur, including a skull and teeth, was discovered on a beach near Cardiff. It was analyzed by a team of UK scientists led by Dr. David Martill from the University of Portsmouth, and was identified as a new species and genus of the theropod dinosaur.

 

“Approximately 40% of a skeleton including cranial and postcranial remains representing a new genus and species of basal neotheropod dinosaur is described,” Dr. Martill and his colleagues from the Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales, the University of Manchester, and the University of Portsmouth, wrote in a paper in the journal PLoS ONE.

 

“It was collected from fallen blocks from a sea cliff that exposes Late Triassic and Early Jurassic marine and quasi marine strata on the south Wales coast near the city of Cardiff.”

 

Dr. Martill and co-authors proposed the name Dracoraptor hanigani for this new dinosaur.

“The genus name Dracoraptor is from Draco alluding to the dragon of Wales with raptor, meaning robber, a commonly employed suffix for theropod dinosaurs,” they explained.

“The species name honors Nick and Rob Hanigan who discovered the skeleton.”

dinosaur-dracoraptor-hanigani-2

 

According to the paleontologists, Dracoraptor hanigani was a small, agile carnivore, about 2.3 feet (70 cm) tall and 6.5 feet (2 m) long, with a long tail.

It was a distant cousin of T. rex and lived at the beginning of the Jurassic period, approximately 200 million years ago, possibly making it the oldest Jurassic dinosaur in the UK or even in the world.

The specimen also represents the most complete theropod dinosaur from Wales and the first dinosaur skeleton from the Jurassic of Wales.

It is thought that the fossil was from a juvenile animal as most of its bones are not yet fully formed.

“The Triassic-Jurassic extinction event is often credited for the later success of dinosaurs through the Jurassic and Cretaceous, but previously we knew very little about dinosaurs at the start of this diversification and rise to dominance,” said co-author Dr. Steven Vidovic, of the University of Portsmouth.

“Now we have Dracoraptor, a relatively complete 6-foot-long juvenile theropod from the very earliest days of the Jurassic in Wales.”

Albashed’s Farmyard Animals need a home

alba-shed-dinosaurs-direct-lifesize-models-life-sized-replicas-model-Mallard-Duck-Realistic-Lifesize-Model

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

Before you say anything, these aren’t real farmyard animals that we’re keeping in our warehouse, but they still need to find a good home all the same.

At Albashed, we have a variety of lovely farmyard animals available to purchase to spice up your farm shop, cafe or children’s play area. They will definitely make look twice to check if they’re real!

On the Albashed ‘farm’, we have a few little pigs that are so life-like, it may even prompt you to step back to avoid the smell (don’t worry, they don’t actually smell…).[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”7263″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”7258″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]Or take our cute little Ewe for example. A model so gorgeous, you’ll want to pick it up and hug it, although we wouldn’t suggest it as the models are very hard…

Also, take a look at all the chickens and ducks that are running around the place – they will definitely definitely grab the kids’ attention.

With so many animals around the place, we have our own little model farm at Albashed, but remember, these animals need to go to a special home and if you think you can provide that, get in touch with us. We have plenty of farmyard animals for you to take a look at.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

New products at the Shed!

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

We’re constantly getting new design ideas and inspiration at Alba Shed, so here’s some of our newest life-sized models.

April has seen lots of new and exciting additions to the Shed’s collection of life-sized and detailed replica models. Especially, in the Alba Shed zoo and farm…[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Our realistic Buffalo head wall hanging is a real eye-catcher. The stunningly realistic features of the decoration will definitely make people question if it’s real (don’t worry, it’s not) and would make a fantastic addition to any Wild West themed area or animal park.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”7286″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”7285″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]We have a brand new set of Gloucester Old Spots pigs, who are as cute as anything! These eye-catching replicas would look perfect in an animal theme park or farm-themed restaurant or cafe to really bring your establishment to life.

Not only are we stocking up on life-sized animal models but also, detailed decorative artisan pieces. Take our bronze-tinted deep sea diving helmet for example. This piece is perfect to add a little bit of class and sophistication to any area but wouldn’t go a miss in an aquarium or fishing shop in order to grab people’s attention.

Just take a look at all our incredible new products right here.

Which one of our larger than life pieces can perfect the look you’re going for?

Give us a call or come and see these incredible life-sized replica models for yourself at the Shed.
