(Indian Crested) Porcupine from "Fizzio" (Schleich - Bayala)
« on: March 27, 2013, 09:07:50 AM »
Walk-around of the Schleich Bayala porcupine from "Fizzio" (some sort of elven porcupine warrior), apparently an Indian or White-tailed Crested Porcupine, Hystrix indica Kerr, 1792 (the mane has no or at least very little white, unlike H. cristata and H. africaeaustralis would have). Snout-vent length of the porcupine is approx. 65 mm so the scale would be between approx. 1:11 and 1:14 (it would be a little too large to be in scale with "Fizzio"). The "European Father" from Miniland "Los Amigos del Mundo" is approx. 1:13 - 1:14 scale and gives a better comparison of an adult human with the animal. The figure has just been retired so I had to get one while I could. A little too expensive for my taste (since I'm not overly fond of Fizzio, he's in the last two photos) but the porcupine itself was too cute to pass on this one... ^-^

Very nice animal, too bad it couldn't be bought out of the set...

The porcupine is rather fine. That's quite a quiff to go with those quills.  :D

Hehe, if the quiff would be pointing more forward it would qualify for being a member of Leningrad Cowboys. ;D But the mane is indeed very long in those crested porcupines.
