Walk-around of the Safari Ltd Wildlife Wonders Moose, Alces alces (Linnaeus, 1758); item No. 113289, new for 2016 and this year's only release within the series. Like all Wildlife Wonders models this is a big figure: Snout-vent length is 195 mm and shoulder height is 131 mm (total height to the highest point of the antlers is 172 mm) so the scale is anywhere between 1:13 and 1:16 or even 1:17 for a record specimen. Safari Ltd gives a scale of 1:15 which fits well for a bull standing nearly two metres high at the shoulder. The large size of the figure allows for a finely detailed texture of the fur and well proportioned, rather slender legs. The figure's pose appears quite elegant when compared to Papo's Moose. Hallmark Fonzie is approx. 1:16.5 - 1:17 and Homo sapiens by Bullyland is approx. 1:16 - 1:18 scale.
It has been suggested that the North American moose represents a distinct species, Alces americanus (Clinton, 1822), but often it is just regarded as a subspecies of A. alces. IUCN treats both as separate species which, at present, are both widespread and common so they are both listed as "Least Concern": http://www.iucnredlist.org/details/41782/0 http://www.iucnredlist.org/details/818/0
Currently, the figure is not listed on Safari Ltd's website but I may add a link later.
