Mammalian Spitters: Camels and Llamas

Walk-around of the Papo Wild Animals Bactrian Camel, Camelus bactrianus, Linnaeus, 1758. Shoulder height is 75 mm and hump height 93 mm. So the scale is approx. 1:24 - 1:30. The human figure (Noblewoman from Safari Ltd. Ancient Rome) is approx. 1:27 scale.

Edit 2017-02-07: Fixed broken image urls.


Cool figure friend, I like the textures ^-^.

One of the best Bactrian camel figures I know (next to the amazing Lineol bactrian). Wonderful animal figure. :)

I like the photos too, and how amazing choice of human figure, this add so much life to the scene :) Thank You for sharing :D


The pleasure is all mine, Ana! :) And I'm glad I bought it but it's still my only tylopod figure... :-[ I guess that needs to be changed, eventually. :)


Lovely figure :), a bit x-legged maybe ;D.
The Noblewoman is a great comparison figure for the Camel.
Do you also have a Hannibal for the elephants :)?

Yes, the x-leggedness is something we can see quite often in Papo artiodactyls, e.g. the reindeer is similar in this respect. I have the Noblewoman (and the entire Ancient Rome figures) since March 2010 - Safari Ltd. sent me a surprise parcel back then and those were part of it but they weren't even in the catalogue. I wonder if they had been planned to be released earlier? I don't have a Hannibal figure... but I think some of the best ones to go with elephants are those which you have, too: The man from the Safari Ltd. "African Village Toob" for elephants around 1:30 and the Accoutrements "Horrified B-Movie Victims" for those around 1:22.5.


LOL, X-leggedness!! ;D. Never heard of that before, but I see what I means.

Nevertheless, this camel, his 1-humped brother and their wooly cousin, the Llama, are all great models as far as Papo is concerned. The two camels are good-sized, too, with the slimmer dromedary a bit larger.
Guess what day it is??  >:D

Speaking of X-leggedness, has anyone look at the Mojo Emu head on (front view)??



I really thought there was a camelid thread already, apparently not.

My Camels/Llamas (Macrauchenia added because otherwise there would've been only two)

I don't know the Macrauchenia, sorry. How big are the camel and the llama?

The Llama measures 3in long and a little over 3in tall, the camel measures 5in long and a little under 3.5in tall.

Here are mine:

camles by Britains, VEB Plaho, Domplast i think and a smal Bully

VEB Plaho dromedarys

VEB llamas and a small llama bought in the 80s in the czech republik

Alpaca by Safari Ltd



I was going to buy a Llama figurine from Papo, but it had a broken ear and I letf it and took just the very good Yak.

I think it is the best figurine among those that I see here. Is there some other piece that's been produced in the meanwhilwe?



Hello, this is my Camelidae collection: Alpaca family (Schleich), Bactrian Camel with calf (Papo), Dromedary family (Papo and Safari), Guanaco (Papo named Llama) and a Llama (Collecta) with alpacas. Llama and Alpaca are domesticated forms of Guanaco and Vicunha respectively. They are camelids found exclusively in the Neotropical Region, specifically in the Andes. 


I would like Collecta or another brand to launch Vicunha. I had the opportunity to see wild vicuñas in the Atacama Desert and they are very beautiful and cute.
