Malawisaurus was a relatively small titanosaurid sauropod dinosaur from the early Cretaceous Period. Like other titanosaurs it featured large dermal scales covering the skin on its back.

  • Scientific Name: Malawisaurus dixeyi (meaning "lizard from Malawi, Africa")
  • Characteristics: Like most sauropods, this Malawisaurus has a long neck and long tail. Its midsection is quite rotund, and its back is covered with an arrangement of ossicles, or dermal scales. This hand-painted figure is exquisitely detailed to reflect the most current scientific research available.
  • Size and Color: The Malawisaurus figure isn't nearly as large as the real thing, but it's still no slouch at 14 inches long and 4 inches high. It's a bit longer than a standard American ruler and a bit taller than a credit card on its side. The main color pattern of the figure is a muted orange with brown tiger-like stripes, with a white underside and face.
  • The Malawisaurus is part of the Wild Safari® Prehistoric World collection.

History:

Malawisaurus is one of the few titanosaurs whose discoveredremains include skull material, giving us a better idea of whatthis animal and its relatives looked like in life. The nameMalawisaurus refers to the place of discovery, in the republic ofMalawi in southeast Africa. It was originally described in 1928 bySidney Haughton, who incorrectly believed it was a type ofGigantosaurus (a sauropod related to Diplodocus, now known asTornieria). Though small for a sauropod, Malawisaurus was stillquite a large animal at over 50 feet long.
