Hello friends, these are the figures of African buffalo calf (Syncerus caffer) Sparrman, 1779 of Schleich - Wild Life. Total lenght is 80 mm. This figure was relased in 2010 and it is retired currently. The horns of African buffalo are very peculiar. A characteristic feature of them is the adult bull's horns have fused bases, forming a continuous bone shield referred to as a "boss', which can not always be penetrated even by a rifle bullet. From the base, the horns diverge, then bend down, and then smoothly curve upwards and outwards.











Schleich are one of the oldest brands that they do figures currently. They have done new figures of some old replicas even their cubs, calfs and juveniles. This replica is one of their old figures. This figure is a very nice replica. The proportions of this figure are nice from my point of view. The stand of this figure is nice. I think that it are one of the best replicas of this specie. I bought this figure in a store of Madrid (Spain) one month ago ^-^.

Very cute! :) The figure is already retired? It seems to me that the production life of Schleich figures in general has become quite short.
