Holztiger Dimetrodon The dimetrodon isn't really a dinosaur - in fact it died out 40 million years before any dinosaurs actually appeared - but don't let that put you off this fab wooden figure. This dimetrodon is certainly eye-catching. He has been hand-crafted from solid wood and painted with water-based paints which allow the rich grain of the wood to shine through. He has a tan body and a huge coral red sail rising up from his spine, which was used to attract the ladies. This figure measures 11 x 6.5 x 2.3cm. Suitable from age 3.
