Safari Toobs - Ancient Fossils (10pcs)
Our Ancient Fossils Toob is perfect for anyone, from basic enthusiasts to actual palaeontologists! It includes figurines of a dinosaur footprint, giant crab, ammonite, raptor claw, fossilized frog, trilobite, T-Rex tooth, fossilized fish, dinosaur skin, and a sea scorpion. Individually hand painted and professionally crafted to be as scientifically accurate as possible, these figurines are great for imaginative play, insightful learning, or even as cute décor for your nightstand, desk, or bookshelf. Did you know that raptors’ unique arced claw is actually thought to be a predatory tool, similar to the talons of a bird?
While they may look different in colour, such as the orange ammonite or the yellow T-rex tooth, fossils can actually be all kinds of colours depending on what type of material they’re surrounded by in the earth! The main focus of palaeontology, fossils are mainly studied in terms of their age, how they were formed, and any insight they give into our current taxonomy of species.
Although new species are still being discovered, the modern goal of palaeontology and the study of fossils is to fill out and properly order the tree of life. What secrets and previously unknown facts of evolution will you uncover when you dig up and analyse these incredible fossil figurines?
