Description

Megalania is the largest terrestrial lizard known to have existed. The lack of complete, or nearly complete fossil skeletons has made it difficult to determine the exact dimensions of Megalania, with estimates raging from 7 to 4,5 meters long. Judging from its size, Megalania would have fed mostly upon medium to large sized animals, including any of the giant marsupials like Diprotodon along with other reptiles, small mammals, and birds and their eggs and chicks. It had heavily built limbs and body and a large skull complete with a small crest in between the eyes, and a jaw full of serrated blade-like teeth. (information from Wikipedia.org) This replica is a complete skeleton from this giant varanus-like lizard and the shipping for this one is free!
