Hello friends, this is the figure of Emperor Penguin (Aptenodytes forsteri) Gray, 1844 of Schleich - Wild Life. Total lenght is 70mm. This figure was relased in 1997 and it is retired currently. Like all penguin species, emperor penguins have streamlined bodies to minimize drag while swimming, and wings that are more like stiff, flat flippers. The tongue is equipped with rear-facing barbs to prevent prey from escaping when caught. Males and females are similar in size and colouration. The adult has deep black dorsal feathers, covering the head, chin, throat, back, dorsal part of the flippers, and tail.

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. The stand of this figure is nice. I think that it was a good replica of this specie. I bought this figure in a flea market the last sunday ^-^.
