Barn Owl (Papo-Wild Life).
« on: March 09, 2014, 01:37:01 PM »
Hello friends, this is the figure of Barn Owl (Tyto alba) Scopoli, 1769 of Papo-Wild Life. Total lenght 90 mm. This figure was released in 2013 and currently is avaliable. They are nocturnal, as is usual for owls, but often becomes active shortly before dusk and can sometimes be seen during the day when relocating from a sleeping place it does not like. This is a bird of open country such as farmland or grassland with some interspersed woodland, usually below 2,000 m ASL but occasionally as high as 3,000 m ASL in the tropics. It hunts by flying low and slowly over an area of open ground, hovering over spots that conceal potential prey. They may also use fence posts or other lookouts to ambush prey. The Barn Owl feeds primarily on small vertebrates, particularly rodents.















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 feathers is awesome. Definetly it is one of the best figure of Barn Owl. It is one of my favorite figures of my collection and I bought this figure in the store of  National Natural Science Museum of Madrid (Spain) ^-^.

Thanks for sharing  :) it's interesting to see it appears as though three sections - head, wings and body - are joined together. Does anyone know if Papo uses this often?

Thanks :) I didn't realise, but I think it's a good idea; it somewhat saves sloppy sculpting and isn't too detrimental to the overall look.

I think so  ^-^. If they do a good job with this, I believe that they wouldnt have problems in a nearly future  ^-^.

Wow, brilliant figure! :) Looks like it was made from two parts. One minor thing that I find a bit annoying is that circular stamp on the right wing. :-\ This is not something that needs to be on the upper side of an animal figure.

Yes, They must put the stamp in the feathers of the tail for example, but it is a really nice figure  ^-^.
