Blue Wildebeest (Papo - Wild Animals)
« on: December 27, 2012, 08:33:29 AM »
A walk-around of Papo's Blue or Common Wildebeest, Connochaetes taurinus (Burchell, 1823) from the Wild Animals line or "Les Animaux Sauvages".
The shoulder height of this figure is 79 mm, so corresponding to a shoulder height of adult specimens between 1.18 and 1.45 m the scale would be approx. 1:15 - 1:18.

Indeed, Postsaurischian! All too often Wildebeest are portrayed as seemingly sluggish, dopey animals. Papo, however, have created a superb lively stance for this one  -  he looks great! I am already beginning to visualise so many dioramas....  :))
