Saola (CollectA - Wild Life)
« on: July 12, 2013, 11:43:02 PM »
Walk-around of the 2013 CollectA Wild Animals Saola or Vu Quang Bovid, Pseudoryx nghetinhensis Dung et al., 1993. The real species is one of the rarest extant mammals and only a handful of living specimens have ever been seen. Snout-vent length is 86 mm plus approx. 19 mm tail, shoulder height is 49 mm and horn length 36 mm. Unfortunately the horns are a little too long, the longest recorded horns are about 450 mm long, not more than about half of the shoulder height. The scale is approx. 1:17 - 1:18.

I think that, Collecta is the king of antelope figures  ^-^. This figure is a good example ^-^.

Thanks, Jetoar, Helge, Ana, and widukind! :) I guess this is one of the most important bovid figures of this year and definitely worth getting.
