Common Octopus (Maia & Borges).
« on: December 23, 2014, 06:36:00 PM »
Hello friends, this is the figure of Common Octopus (Octopus vulgaris) Cuvier, 1797 of Maia & Borges. Total lenght is 200 mm. The common octopus hunts at dusk. Crabs, crayfish, and bivalve mollusks (two-shelled molluscs such as cockles) are preferred, although the octopus will eat almost anything it can catch. It is able to change colour to blend in with its surroundings, and is able to jump upon any unwary prey that strays across its path.









Maia & Borges is a portuguese brand whose that done the earliest sea life figures of Schleich. It has produced some figures of animals with a really nice quality. This is one of the best examples of this. Sculpt, colors and details are really awesome. I Think that it is beautiful replica of this specie. I bouhgt this figure the last saturday in a book shop  ^-^.

Great! :) Since I never had the Schleich "Seetiere 1:32" Octopus (which as far as I remember looked virtually identical) I was wondering: Is this exactly the same sculpt or a different one? I only have three of the newer Maia & Borges figures, one of them being the Right Whale which, from the manufacturer's photo, looks very similar to Schleich's retired "Nordkaper" but in fact it is a considerably different figure. But some of the others look as if they were indeed the same as older Schleich "Seetiere 1:32" figures.
