Bearded Vulture (Bullyland - Animal World)
« on: December 30, 2012, 06:37:44 PM »
This walk-around covers the Bullyland Animal World Bearded Vulture (or Lammergeier) Gypaetus barbatus (Linnaeus, 1758). Length is approx. 89 mm, wing span (if the wings were fully stretched out) approx. 170 mm, so the scale would be between 1:11 and 1:14 based on body length and 1:14 - 1:16 based on wing span. The human figure ("European Father" from Los Amigos del Mundo) is approx. 1:13 - 1:14 scale.

Bone breaker?  So it's no coincidence that this figure is clutching a bone. It looks like a bone anyway - some sort of femur?

Yes, apparently they lift large bones in the air and drop them from high altitude to crack them open. The Name "Lammergeier" comes from German "Lämmergeier" and would translate into "Lamb Vulture" because it was (falsely) thought to prey on lambs.

It's a part of their Birds of Prey tube and it's not nearly as well done as this Bullyland one. :)
