The Monterey Bay adult beluga was modeled after a whale named Ferdinand from Zoo Duisburg. He now lives at SeaWorld in San Diego.

About Lineol and Albert Cassmann

The animals of the Berlin Zoo served as models for the wild animals. Two famous examples from the production of animal figurines are the hippopotamus Knautschke and the goblin "Bobby", which Albert Caasmann has immortalized in miniature.
