CollectA's replica of the Oviraptor is detailed and lifelike, down to its feathers and distinctive crested head. The Oviraptor's n...ame means ''egg taker'' in Latin, because its partial skeleton was found on a pile of fossilized eggs. Scientists originally thought those eggs were part of the Oviraptor's diet. Later analysis shows that the eggs were probably Oviraptor eggs, indicating that the specimen was found on or near a nest. Based on the fossilized skeleton, scientists estimate that the Oviraptor lived about 75 million years ago in the area that is now Mongolia. It was probably about 8 feet long and weighed approximately 75 pounds. This beautifully sculpted, collectible figure from our Prehistoric Life Collection measures 3.5''L x 2''H.

Isn't it fun to break open geodes and find the beautiful crystals growing inside? But it is very disappointing when you break them... open and find solid rock with very few crystals. Good News! The company that puts together these kits guarantees that you will find crystals in their geodes collected from mines around the world.(Sorry, No Amethyst crystals in these.) This science kit is an adventure ready to be discovered! Geodes were formed millions of years ago when prehistoric volcanoes erupted and gas bubbles were trapped in the lava. The result is a science phenomenon of incredible crystal caverns within each exciting geode. When kids gently hit one of the geodes with a hammer, it will break open to reveal a hidden mineral treasure. Kit Includes 1 pair of safety goggles, 4 geodes (2 each of 2 different kinds). Geodes range in size from 1.5"-2", 1 display stand, 1 Activity Book with 10 Puzzles, 1 Full Color Information Guide.

CollectA's detailed replica of the prehistoric Irritator is lifelike, down to the scales on its hide and its long, conical teeth. ...The story of the dinosaur's name is an interesting one. The first skull specimen, which may have originated in Brazil, had been artificially elongated by fossil poachers. Paleontologists who restored the skull to its more accurate form were ''irritated,'' hence the name. The Irritator may have resembled another South American dinosaur, the Spinosaurus. It probably lived in the Middle Cretaceous Period, 100 million years ago, and could have reached 25 feet in length. The shape of its snout indicates that it probably preyed on fish. This beautifully sculpted, collectible figure from our Prehistoric Life Collection measures 6.1''L x 2.4''H.
