History: The actual hypothesis that birds were descendants of dinosaurs was suggested as early as the mid-19th century by biologist Thomas Henry Huxley. However, without significant evidence, Huxley’s theory never gathered steam. It wasn’t until 1969 when John Ostrom found a theropod (a suborder of dinosaurs) which had a skeletal structure that was almost identical to modern birds. This caused a much more systematic search for fossils of feathered dinosaurs, which were eventually discovered in the mid 1990’s.
Characteristics: The Amazon River Basin and the rainforests of South America are home to some amazing creatures. In the water we have the Arapaima, one of the world’s largest freshwater fish, the Amazon River Dolphin or Boto, with its unique pink coloration, and the Black Caiman, the largest species of caiman. In the trees of the rainforest you have the slow-moving 3 Toed Sloth, the predatory Jaguar, and the Harpy Eagle, which has the largest talons of any bird of prey. Rounding out the set is the unusual looking Giant Anteater, and the largest rodent in the world, the Capybara.
Size: This Toob contains 12 professionally crafted figurines that range from 1.25 to 3.75 inches tall, while the Toob itself measures 1.5 inches long, 1.5 inches wide, and 12.8 inches tall, a bit larger than the size of a standard American ruler.
