Congrats Harriet for having this Tapir. They said, this Tapir has many flaws but I know you can bring this one to life with your breath taking outside photos. Hope to see many wonderful photos once you goes outside. bounce bounce bounce

I also bought the Thomson's gazelles, but didn't have time to take pictures of them. Here they are though.

About the painting remember that the best fox and lynx of all brands are made in Portugal (the old Schleich fox and the new schleich lynx).
Something are telling me that the portuguese painters are the best. I'm not being partial, all of you know that I am not related to this country!!!
Very Happy Yeah, Portuguese painters are doing very well.

By the way, Harriet, you haven't mentioned where was your tapir made?

It's now or never!
Does anyone could explain me why everybody says that schleich gazelle is Thomson and Schleich website is saying Cuvieri???
That question is important for me and I guess for Kiryuha too!

Well, there are quit some gazelle-species that could look like the Schleich gazelle, but is is obvious that they are Thompsons... Laughing
But i think, because Schleich has problems to make a male model with nice and thin horns, they said, that these 2 models are the Cuvier gazelle, although they do not match the profile of that species... Shocked
So in the eyes of most collectors, they are still Thompsons, and we wait eagerly for the male model, otherwise we use another brand to match with the two Schleich! Very Happy





By the way, before the question comes again... Laughing
The male gazelle is made by the Nayab company in China, but brought out for several brnads, like Animal Classics-The Nature Zone here in Holland, or Kim Play, and many others...

Thanks Willy for the pics and explanation! Makes sense and I agree that is more similar to a Thomson but official info was other. We have too Schleich Emperor Penguins that Schleich is calling king penguins (chiks) and its parent is a King penguin... etc.! So this things are confusing for a new collector!

The name that Schleich gave to this gazelles, came much later as the model was brought out...
So there is some room for thinking in the collector-scene... Rolling Eyes

The first Schleich penguins were called king-penguins, as they had the colours of the emperor.
Now they did better i think with the newest models.
The two species do look very similar, although the king is smaller then the emperor, and the king has orange, and the emperor yellow on his head, but i think they know, but never thought really well with naming them... Shocked

We have discussed this issue earlier. I think that Cuvieri is just a mistake of site content editors

The Papo, s real (on morphology) leopard named - "jaguar", and Schleich,s mishmash with "king" / "imperor" penguin or story with gazelleTompson... What,s the matter? Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

Another addition to my collection, the Schleich Yak. It's a beautiful model. When I picked it up, I was surprised at the weight of it.
