Walk-around of the Safari Ltd Wild Safari Wildlife (male) Common Chimpanzee, Pan troglodytes (Blumenbach, 1776); item No. 224729. Snout-vent length is approx. 72 mm, so the scale is somewhere between 1:9 and 1:13. The human figure (South American Father by Miniland "Los Amigos del Mundo") is approx. 1:13 - 1:14 scale. I'm not overly fond of many of the rather anthropomorphic or cute poses chimpanzee figures typically show so I was very pleased to see that this is an entirely different approach. The figure is dynamic and powerful, depicting a charging adult male. If you are searching for a chimpanzee figure that looks aggressive and muscule-bound enough to be capable of fighting off the occasional leopard, this is probably the best figure to get. The name "Common Chimpanzee" is somewhat misleading, its geographical range is larger than that of the closely related Bonobo, Pan paniscus, but like all extant species within Hominidae other than Homo sapiens, it is actually highly threatened and IUCN considers it as "Endangered".
