Commerson's Dolphin - Large (Play Vision)
« on: January 20, 2013, 07:39:44 PM »
This is a review of the large Play Vision Commerson's Dolphin (Cephalorhynchus commersonii).  It is 14 cm long (about 1:15 - 1:10 scale), much larger than its smaller PV counterpart.  This particular individual was purchased at Sea World San Diego, one of the few aquariums that maintain this species.  This figure has some accuracy issues, as its coloration is slightly off, the dorsal fin is much too long, and the pectoral flippers should be more rounded.

Many thanks for posting, Varanus! :) Despite the inaccuracies, it's very nice, interesting figure, and I've never seen it before. I only have the small PV version, but that's my only Commerson's Dolphin. A few years back the Zoo Duisburg, Germany had them (they kept them together with Beluga Whales), really tiny (but very sympathic and agile) whales! :)

Your welcome! ^-^  How interesting that they kept them with Belugas, though I suppose they'd get along just fine, even though they're from opposite poles. :o  There are at least three others in this line of larger PV figures: a Bottlenose Dolphin, an Orca, and a Beluga.
