Duck-billed platypus (Wild Safari Wildlife)

Some close ups of the head



Overview of body.



Look, they've even included the spurs on the feet. The underside shimmers.



Here's the official Safari Ltd page for this figure: http://safariltd.shptron.com/p/wild-safari%C2%AE-wildlife-platypus?pp=12&pp=12

Nice. Can I ask how many animal figures you own? (Not counting the prehistoric kind) :)

They came flying from far away, now I'm under their spell....

Not very many! Only about five until I started this forum.

I recently had a delivery of wild animals from Safari, which I will photograph for this section of the forum, but I won't keep them, as they will become prizes for the upcoming diorama contest :)

I can't say as I haven't seen the Papo one in person. But this one is brilliant!

The WS Platypus is an amazing figure. I've seen the Papo version in a toy store - it's good but I still like the Safari figure better. :)

I like this Safari Platypus more than the Papo. The Papo is good though. The other one I like a lot is the Mojo Fun. It is really nice. Not quite as detailed as the Safari. But it is smaller (I like smaller). The Safari is a tiny bit large, but it is still the best sculpted (in my view).
