Hello friends, this is the figure of Red Squirrell (Sciurus vulgaris) Linnaeus, 1758 of Collecta-Wild Life. Total lenght is 40mm. This figure was relased in 2011 and it is avaliable.Red squirrels occupy boreal, coniferous woods in northern Europe and Siberia, preferring Scots pine, Norway spruce and Siberian pine. In western and southern Europe they are found in broad-leaved woods where the mixture of tree and shrub species provides a better year round source of food.









Collecta is a young brand of figures, but in his short time of existence, they have done a lot of figures of different species of animals (included rare species of dinosaurs and animals). In their category of wild life, they have included the Red Squirrell. This figure is a nice representation of this animal. The colors are exact and the details are nice and the sculpture is awesome. I think that it is one of the best figures of this animal and a good acquistion for deers collectors.  I bought this figure in a toy store of Cádiz (Spain) one month ago ^-^.

Lovely squirrel, Jetoar! :) They are ubiquitous where I live. Here we have predominantly beech forests and hazel is quite common, too, so they can feed on beechnuts and hazelnuts.

Thanks Brontodocus, I see these specie  in some places of my country, overall at the montains forest with a lot of pines. One of the best point of this figure in my opinion is that it has the same size than other figures as Schleich squirrels  ^-^.
