PostSubject: COLLECTA 2016: WILDLIFE - Giant Eland Calf (88768)   Fri Nov 20, 2015 10:46 am

So here we have the first antelope to be released in 2016.  It is a Giant Eland Calf.  We thought long and hard about which baby to produce and this is the first one.  No other baby antelopes this year but I do hope this will be the start of a range of babies for some of the single, lone adults in the collection.  

This calf is in a walking pose similar to it's parent and is a photo of the prototype.  There may be slight changes to the model such as a mini extension to the torso but this is essentially how the model will look.  I am so glad to have a young antelope from a unique species.  

The pose was modeled on a photo of a slightly older calf hence this one has it's horns just emerging. There was the possibility of creating a very young Eland but I think an older 'child' was suitable in this instance given all the young baby antelopes/goat/sheep we see across all other brands.

As a lover of antelopes, this is fantastic and a great addition to the Giant Eland Adult.

I assume from your introductory comment that we will have unless one more antelope this year. Very Happy bounce
I am also not too much into calves but it doesn't mean that I am not able of seeing that this is an amasing figure. I even like the fact that it already have some visible horns. Very Happy Pose is also great. I confess I was expecting a sable calf instead once there is already a couple of adults. Very Happy

I am also hopinh we can have a Sable calf - next calf on my preference list too....

So you are worried this is the last of the antelopes for 2016? Just wait until next Friday and you will be pleasantly, awesomely and excitingly surprised (I know this is not correct English) but just wait till next Friday......

Three Hoofed animals to be announced......Not all antelopes but certainly some on everybody's wants lists lol

I really hope for sable and a scimitar oryx calves.
Are these three the last wild life figures for 2016? Or will there may be a carnivore?

I am glad I've red correctly your words! Laughing
So, there is unless an adult antelope this year. It is hard to guess, maybe a saiga, hard to know. scratch
However, I believe that one of the hoofed animals is the announced zebra and I hope CollectA surprises us again. I think asking a grevy's is still too difficult to manufacture but from CollectA we can expect everything. bounce bounce

I like this age for a calf- it's a good idea, as a change from very young calves with their fathers. Laughing

Great. I hope two of them are antelopes. I suspect the third one would be a wild sheep. But who knows, it could be a zebra. Or a musk ox. However, systematically, musk ox is a sheep.
I can't wait until this Friday.

You worked with Giant elands ? Where ? There are none of them in europe currently-the last one died in 1980-only in some Us-Zoos, at Johannesburg Zoo or in the Wild...

Amersfoort never kept Giant Eland, no Zoo in the netherlands did.
There were kept only at

Frankfurt(only one male in 1958)
Paris Zoo 1968-1974
Tierpark Berlin 1970-1980
Prag Zoo 1971-73
Dierenpark Plankendael 1967-1980

Thats it in Europe.

They have common elands instead and they are not so radically different. So surely [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] just mixed them what is normal, I guess. :)

Their english plate said giant for a while. Could be a mistake on the translation staff, lol.

According to the Amerfoort zoo site, there was a young Eland Antilope born at August 2014....
They even posted a video clip.
I have no idea if this is a Giant Eland or a Common Eland?
They just call it Eland Antilope.

It's a common, the giants have a black neck.
But the EAZA TAG for antelopes wants to import some giant elands directly from Africa and zoos from North America.

The plan to import giant elands again to europe exists many years. So hopefully it will really happen sometime, so like it happend with Gerenuk-but unfortuantely, they are not doing well in Berlin...so I have my doubt, if they can create a population out of thes every few inbred animals.

Giant elands doing very well in the Usa, so I think, after qurantine restrictions to the Eu are no longer that difficult, the chances to import giant elands from the USA are good, but not from Africa.

The gerenuk aren't doing that bad, the young animal died but only because it ate some things that he shouldn't. So we should stay positive (and anyway it would have been much better if they would have importet Northern Gerenuks animals from Catar) and hope that in some years there will be a good number of animals in Europe.

Yes, Bryan is right, those are common elands, I am just posting here pictures of both females with calves to turn clearer their differences ... and how beautiful they are. Very Happy
