My fascination/ obsession with dinosaurs started in the 2nd grade. When I was younger, I've always wanted to be a paleontologist. Therefore, my nerdy self has designed a set of dinosaur pins to add to the line of products.
Skinny Vinny Dinosaur Pin Set consists of 3 different species of dinosaurs. Why specifically these 3? Well, what's cooler than having horns on your face, being a gentle giant or spikes on your tail? Not much. Also, I'm partial to herbivores.
Triceratops - is a genus of herbivorous ceratopsid dinosaur that lived during the late Maastrichtian stage of the Late Cretaceous Period, around 68 to 65.5 million years ago in what is now North America. The term Triceratops, which literally means "three-horned face", is derived from the Greek. ( Recently, many scientists are saying the Triceratops is just a juvenile Torosaurus. )
Apatosaurus - previously misnamed Brontosaurus, is a genus of sauropod dinosaur that lived from about 154 to 150 million years ago, during the Jurassic Period (Kimmeridgian and early Tithonian ages). It was one of the largest land animals known to have ever existed, with an average length of 23 m (75 ft) and a mass of at least 16 metric tons (18 short tons).
Stegosaurus - is a genus of armored stegosaurid dinosaur. They lived during the Late Jurassic period, some 155 to 150 million years ago in what is now western North America.
The last dinosaurs died about 65 million years ago. The most amazing fact is dinosaurs roamed the Earth for 160 million years. Humans have been here for about a million years, give or take.
Limited edition set consists of 3, 1" casted, gold-plated pins, from a manufacturer based in Vermont.
