Does anybody have a comparison shot of the Sumatran rhino with any of Safari's others?

Also, how large are the Lemon Shark and Manta Ray? What scale are they?

Great addition stemturtle! Looks like a nice realistic figure, rather than an anthropomorphised character.

King Louie actually is not in the Jungle Book books. He was added for the Disney cartoon movie, but when they made the live action/CGI one a couple years ago, they changed Louie from an orangutan to Gigantopithecus, namely because the former has never occurred in India whereas the latter has!

I am surprised this figure didn't get more chatter on DTF since it's an extinct guy! :)

Seeing those treasures (especially Odontochelys) brings back lots of memories.

I just realized that I think this is my accidental 'fossil turtle' shelf...other than a couple Kaiyodo and one Shapeways of course...!

King Louie, Gigantopithecus sp. (Disney / Just Play), height 2.25 inches or 5.7 cm.

The Jungle Book character King Louie identified himself as a Gigantopithecus in the CGI film by Disney in 2016. This extinct pongid is part of a set of 5 figures. It is not articulated. Life size may have been 10 feet or 3 m, which is only an estimate because of the scarcity of fossils. Orange is the new Kong. ;)  I like the realism of this figure.

Since this topic came up again, any chance of replacing the photos?  ;) C:-)

Thanks!
