Hello friends, this is the figure of Female Hippo (Hippopotamus amphibius) Linnaeus, 1758 of Schleich-Wild Life. Total lenght of both are 150 mm. This figure was realised in 90s and it is retired. Hippos are recognizable by their barrel-shaped torsos, wide-opening mouths revealing large canine tusks, nearly hairless bodies, columnar-like legs and large size. They are the third-largest type of land mammal by weight (between 1½ and 3 tonnes): the only heavier species on average are the white and Indian rhinoceroses, and the elephants. The hippopotamus is one of the largest quadrupeds and, despite its stocky shape and short legs, it can easily outrun a human.

Schleich are one of the oldest brands that they do figures currently. They have done new figures of some old replicas even their cubs, calfs and juveniles. This replica is one of their old figures. This figure is a very nice replica. The proportions of this figure are nice from my point of view. I think that. Details of hair are really good. The stand of this figure is nice. I bought this figure in aI bought this figure in a flea market two weeks ago and I fixed a lot of scuffs that it had ^-^.
