PostSubject: My zoo pics as recreated at home   Tue Oct 13, 2015 6:28 pm

Technically not "outside" but the originals are.

I decided to try to recreate my local zoo with the animal models I have.  Which leads to some interesting Substitutes.  

NOTE: Currently all pics are taken with my phone, since well, it's my only camera, and the quality could be better.  Without further adieu, my long term project: My zoo at home. :)



Amur Tigers.  (New additions of four two-year-old sisters: Morgana, Taj, Ursula & Glinda - no I don't know which is which, previously of Ohio. These four gals replace the 19-year-old Flash (male) )

I love this project, actually, I think that instead of a parent limit kids collection to a certain company, they could easily stimulate them collecting animals that can be found in their local Zoo or their favorite zoo.
That's a great idea and of course we want to see how it developes. cheers
