Polar bear (Papo - Wild Life).
« on: February 16, 2014, 11:00:04 PM »
Hello friends, this is the figure of Polar bear (Ursus maritimus) Phipps 1774 of Papo-Wild Life. Total lenght is 140 mm. This figure was relased in 2013 and it is avaliable nowadays. It is a large bear, approximately the same size as the omnivorous Kodiak bear (Ursus arctos middendorffi). A boar (adult male) weighs around 350–700 kg (770–1,540 lb), while a sow (adult female) is about half that size. Although it is the sister species of the brown bear, it has evolved to occupy a narrower ecological niche, with many body characteristics adapted for cold temperatures, for moving across snow, ice, and open water, and for hunting the seals which make up most of its diet. It is classified as a vulnerable species, with eight of the nineteen polar bear subpopulations in decline.











Papo is a young brand in the world of figures if we compare them with Safari or Schleich, but they have a important place in the world currently. They are famous for their figures of feline and dinosaurs but they are doing great jobs with the reptiles and birds (new garhial is amazing) and their wild animals figures are not a exception. Proportions are awesome an details of the hairs is awesome. Definetly it is one of the best figure of Polar bear. I think that it is only exceeded for Polar bear of Safari Ltd. - Wild Life Wonders. It is one of my favorite figures of my collection and I bought this figure in a store of Jerez de la Frontera (Spain) yesterday ^-^.
