Yellow-footed tortoise (Schleich-Wild Life).
« on: December 23, 2014, 01:48:05 AM »
Hello friends, this is the figure of Yellow-footed tortoise (Chelonoidis denticulata) Linnaeus, 1758 of Schleich-Wild Life. Total lenght is 80 mm. This figure was relased in 1991 and it is retired nowaday. The yellow-footed tortoise is also called the yellow-foot or yellow-legged tortoise, the Brazilian giant tortoise, or South American forest tortoise, as well as local names such as morrocoy, woyamou or wayamo, or some variation of jabuta. Many of the local names are shared with the similar red-footed tortoise









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 but the colors would be better. I think that. Details of hair are really good. The stand of this figure is nice. I bought this figure in a flea market two weeks ago ^-^.

While it's a nice tortoise figure for sure I don't think this is meant to be a Yellow-footed. It doesn't look like one and I think it was originally named "Riesenschildkröte" which would indicate one of those Galapagos species.

Thanks friend. I thought that it is this specie because it appeared in South America map inside schleich catalog  ^-^.
