Where I work we sell some Schleich and we have two old trees that have been in the store since 2007. They are SO expensive nobody ever buys them. Well I've admired them for a long time and finally made an offer to the boss...I ended up buying BOTH trees for less than the price of one! Very Happy

Anyway, I here is the big acacia tree. It is so big that I had to divide my animals onto two shelves. (So now the hippos, rhinos, and elephants have their own shelf). It is hard to tell from the photo with flash how lovely this tree is. The Schleich trees truly are beautiful!

So now I need some tree dwellers. Is this going to force me to have to buy a MONKEY? monkey

Very Happy

Thanks Andreas! Now it just makes me want to add to it MORE.

Has anyone ever used any kind of backdrops on their shelves?

Great Acacia treee (umbrella tree)! I have them and the retired baboa (SP?) trees as well. Yes, you need to put, or if you do not have one buy, a Schleich leapord into the tree. The footing of the leapord fits great on the low, thick branches. if you collect beyong Schleich, many birds, Playvision civits, baboons and monkey will also go nicely. If you really want your leapord to stand out, put some prey he caught hanging from the tree (perhaps a baby tommy gazelle)--A little distasteful but very realistic!!! affraid

Wow Sergey! That looks great!
Seanie, I do want to get the Schleich leopard. He's actually on my wishlist! But hard to find in my area. But no animal prey hanging from the branches! In my Africa all of the animals are vegetarians like me. Laughing
