Hello friends, this is the figure of Blue Whale (Balaenoptera musculus) Linnaeus, 1758 of Collecta - Sea Life. Total lenght is 220mm. This figure was relased in 2005 and it is avaliable nowaday. Blue whales are rorquals (Balaenopteridae), a family that includes the humpback whale, the fin whale, Bryde's whale, the sei whale, and the minke whale. Balaenopteridae is believed to have diverged from the other families of the suborder Mysticeti as long ago as the middle Oligocene. It is not known when the members of those families diverged from each otherAt 30 metres (98 ft)[4] in length and 170 tonnes (190 short tons) or more in weight, it is the largest known animal ever to have existed. Blue whales were abundant in nearly all the oceans on Earth until the beginning of the twentieth century. For over a century, they were hunted almost to extinction by whalers until protected by the international community in 1966.













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 cattegory of sea life, they have included the blue Whale. This figure is a nice representation of this whale. The colors are exact and the details are nice.  I think that it is a wonderful figure of this animal and good acquistion for whales collectors. However I think that you can find better replicasof this animal as Blue Whale - 2013 (Schleich - Sea Life) (http://animaltoyforum.com/index.php/topic,655.0.html). This is a early gift of my girlfriend for Christmas with a Great White Shark, Orca, Bottlenose Dolphin and Manta Ray  ^-^.
