Fossils discovered in 1978 thought to represent an Iguanodon were re-examined and the Brighstoneus genus erected in 2021. This dinosaur had a prominent, bulbous snout. The patterning on the model would have helped to break up this herbivore's outline and camouflage it as Brighstoneus moved through the dimly lit understorey of the forest.
CollectA’s prehistoric models are created following expert advice and acknowledging the latest scientific discoveries. In order to advance education through play, we are proud to have a tradition of producing models of obscure species and not only the well-known and popular ones. We strive to produce both scientifically accurate models for educational and creative play and ensure that each stage of their production is overseen by a palaeontological expert.
