The Ankylosaurus is the fifth creature to appear in the Lost World Collection from HotCo. Other issues to date include the famed Tyrannosaurus Rex and the massive Wooly Mammoth. Often referred to as a tank in the Cretaceous Period, the Ankylosaurus could be considered the inspiration behind modern battle tank armor.
All 8 oz Antique Finish Ankylosaurus Silver Statues available for purchase today depict the armored design whose fossils have been discovered in geological formations that date to the end of the Cretaceous Period. The last Ankylosaurus members are believed to have died about between 68 and 66 million years ago in western North America.
The Ankylosaurus was a unique creature even in a world of species that modern man cannot truly imagine visually. Its genus name translates literally as fused lizard, and is due to the presence of thick skull plates that covered its entire back and its head. The Ankylosaurus also had a large, solid tale that was used as its primary means of defense and attack. An Ankylosaurus could grow to a length of 19.7 feet to 26.2 feet on average and weight as much as 8.8 short tons.
All Lost World Collection statues have a proprietary antique finish that pulls out the intricate elements of the design on the Ankylosaurus. Each plate on its back and head is individually visible and the antique polish lends an heirloom quality to these statues. An individual serial number and the statues metal purity are laser-etched onto the underside of the statues.
