North Atlantic right whale (Schleich - Sea Life)
« on: February 02, 2014, 01:13:36 AM »
Hello friends, this is the figure of North Atlantic right whale ( Eubalaena glacialis ) Müller, 1776 of Schleich - Sea Life. Total lenght is 250 mm. This figure was relased in 2005 and it was retired. Like other right whales, the North Atlantic right whale, also known as the northern right whale or black right whale, is readily distinguished from other whales by the callosities on its head, a broad back without a dorsal fin, and a long arching mouth that begins above the eye. The body of the whale is very dark grey or black, occasionally with white patches on the belly. The right whale's callosities appear white due to large colonies of cyamids or whale lice.At present, they are among the most endangered whales in the world, and they are protected under the U.S. Endangered Species Act and the Marine Mammal Protection Act.















Schleich released in 2005 another line of sea animals out scale, but they have a great collection of sea animals that currently, they are retired. This was one of the firts figures of this line. I think that this figure is a great replica of this animal. Colors are the corrects and the sculpture, stand and details are awesome for its size. I think that currently it is a beautiful and great figure. Probably it is one of the best replica of this specie of whale and one of the treasures of a Schleich collector .My father bought this figure to me in a flea market the last week  ^-^.

Nice catch, since its retirement the Schleich Right Whale has become increasingly pricey (I'm glad I bought mine when it was still available in stores). This was the best Right Whale figure by a major (and non-japanese) brand until the Maia & Borges Right Whale showed up. A really classic piece! :)
