Nile crocodile (Schleich - Wild Life).
« on: February 16, 2014, 09:41:28 PM »
Hello friends, this is the figure of Nile crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus) Laurenti, 1768 of Schleich - Wild Life. Total lenght 150 mm. This figure is of 2007 line of figures and currently is available. In the Schleich web site, we can read Dwarf crocodile,(Osteolaemus tetraspis) but this replica is not a replica of this specie and I believe that is a error of Schleich. It is second largest extant reptile in the world, after the saltwater crocodile. The Nile crocodile is quite widespread throughout Sub-Saharan Africa, occurring mostly in the central, eastern, southern and some western parts of the continent and lives in different types of aquatic environments such as lakes, rivers and marshlands.They share basking spots and large food sources such as schools of fish and big carcasses. There is a strict hierarchy, that is determined by size. Large, old males are at the top of this hierarchy and have primary access to food and best basking spots. Crocodiles know their place in the hierarchical order and rarely act against it, but when they do, the results are very bloody and sometimes even fatal. Like other reptiles, Nile crocodiles lay eggs to reproduce, which are guarded by the female.















Schleich are one of the oldest brands that they do figures currently. They have done new figures of some old replicas. This replica is one of their new figures. This figure is a very nice replica. The proportions of this figure are nice from my point of view. I think that. Details of body armor are really good, better than the old replica. The stand of this figure is nice and it is a good acquisition for crocodiles collectors. I think that this figure was one of the best figure of Nile crocodile. However, we can find figures that they are better as Nile Crocodile of Papo. I bought this figure in a store of Jerez (Spain) one week ago ^-^.
