NAUTILUS & TRILOBITES MINIATURE FRAME & FOSSIL 15CM POLYRESIN STATUE (PRE-HISTORIC CREATURES)
Ammonites are an extinct group of marine animals in the Cephalopoda class. They are invertebrates and are more closely related to coleoids (squids, octopus, and cuttlefish) than they were to the modern chambered nautilus, even though they are closer in appearance to the latter. Ammonites first appeared in the oceans during the Devonian Period, some 400 million years ago. They died out around 65.5 million years ago along with the dinosaurs.
This full scale replica of the Nautilus is fixed in a frame with a prehistoric ocean background and depicts the creature partially outside its shell. Available as a Deluxe set with the Nautilus replica or separately, a fossil of three nautilus as they would be unearthed today is a separate display piece.
The trilobite is an extinct marine arthropod that lived over 500 million years ago during the Paleozoic Era. These creatures were one of the earliest complex organisms to evolve on Earth and have left behind a rich fossil record. The trilobite had a hard exoskeleton which protected it from predators and environmental hazards. Some species grew up to three feet in length. They lived in a variety of marine environments, from shallow tropical seas to deep ocean trenches.
This replica of a trilobite is mounted in a display frame and shows how it might have looked as a living creature in the prehistoric ocean. A fossil replica of two trilobites is available as part of the deluxe set with the framed trilobite or as a separate piece.
The Nautilus and Trilobite are also featured on the base of the Star Ace Dunkleosteus statue.
Product Size: Frame
Product Size: Fossil
The two versions of the Ammonites available are $198.99 for framed creature and fossil replica, and $114.99 for framed creature only.
SPINOSAURUS HEAD SKULL STATUE
The Spinosaurus was the largest carnivorous dinosaur that ever lived, outweighing the Tyrannosaurus Rex with a much larger head and body. It roamed North Africa over 90 million years ago and may have hunted in and out of the water.
This replica Spinosaurus Skull is made of polyresin and measures over 30cm long. It can be mounted on the wall or displayed on the accompanying environmental base with a nameplate.
T-REX HEAD SKULL POLYRESIN STATUE
The terrifying Tyrannosaurus was king of the dinosaurs during the late Cretaceous period, over 60 million years ago. A giant predator that could measure 14 meters long and weigh over 6 tons, the Tyrannosaurus is the most well-known and beloved dinosaur for kids and collectors alike.
This replica Tyrannosaurus Skull is made of polyresin and measures over 30cm long. It can be mounted on the wall or displayed on the accompanying environmental base with a nameplate.

The Elasmotherium ranged the wide-open plains of Eurasia as recently as 29,000 years ago, making it contemporary with early humans. It was most likely made extinct by the change in climate during the most recent Ice Age.
Elasmotherium was as large as a Wooly Mammoth, measuring from 4 to 5 meters in length and standing over 2 meters tall. It may have had a large horn up to 2 meters long used for defense and digging.
Star Ace presents a new statue sculpted by renowned animal sculptor, Sean Cooper as part of the Wonders of the Wild series. This polyresin prehistoric rhinoceros features two bird companions to help keep the larger animal free of bugs, just as birds do for modern rhinos. The Elasmotherium is attached to a base representing its natural habitat.
This polyresin statue is 28cm long and stands 16.5cm tall. The Elasmotherium (Winter) will be available with black fur. Only 150 pieces of this variant will be produced, and it will quickly become a much sought after collector’s item!
