One of the first prehistoric lizard-like dinosaurs to dominate the earth about 220 million years ago., the Herrerasaurus was a dangerous hunter that moved on two powerful hindlegs and had sharp, serrated teeth. It was a relatively small dinosaur, measuring approximately 10 to 14-feet long, and it could run like the wind. As this Schleich Dinosaur Herrarasaurus Collectible Figure, the fearful creature measures about 9 1/10-inches long x 4 9/10-inches tall. It sports excellent detail and a movable lower jaw and comes with an informative booklet.
The Herrerasaurus had a rather unusual lower jaw that it could slide back and forth by means of a flexible joint. This allowed it to better grasp its prey. It was named after the Argentinian goatherd, Victorino Herrera, who chanced upon its skeleton in 1959.
