Walk-around of the Schleich Wild Life 14678 male Common Chimpanzee, Pan troglodytes (Blumenbach, 1776). Snout-vent length is approx. 67 mm, so the scale is something between 1:10 and 1:14. The human figure (European Father by Miniland "Los Amigos del Mundo") is approx. 1:13 - 1:14 scale. There are only a few chimpanzee figures I really like and this is actually the first I have in my collection. The name "Common Chimpanzee" is somewhat misleading, its geographical range is larger than that of the closely related Bonobo, Pan paniscus, but like all extant species within Hominidae other than Homo sapiens, it is actually highly threatened and IUCN considers it as "Endangered".

Really beautiful replica  ^-^.
Thanks, Jetoar! :) I couldn't resist when I saw it on a shelf in a store, I think it looks even better than the catalogue photo suggested.
