PostSubject: The 2013 COLLECTA Ganges river dolphin walkaround   Fri Feb 22, 2013 8:59 am

The South Asian river dolphin (Platanista gangetica) is a freshwater or river dolphin found in India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Pakistan which is split into two subspecies, the Ganges river dolphin (P. g. gangetica) and Indus river dolphin (P. g. minor). The Ganges river dolphin is primarily found in the Ganges and Brahmaputra Rivers and their tributaries in Bangladesh, India and Nepal, while the Indus river dolphin is found in the Indus River in Pakistan and its Beas and Sutlej tributaries.
From the 1970s until 1998, they were regarded as separate species; however, in 1998, their classification was changed from two separate species to subspecies of a single species (see taxonomy below). The Ganges river dolphin has been recognized by the government of India as its National Aquatic Animal.
This animal has the long, pointed nose characteristic of all river dolphins. Its teeth are visible in both the upper and lower jaws even when the mouth is closed.  The snout thickens towards its end. The species does not have a crystalline eye lens, rendering it effectively blind, although it may still be able to detect the intensity and direction of light. Navigation and hunting are carried out using echolocation. They are unique among cetaceans in that they swim on their sides. The species has only a small, triangular lump in the place of a dorsal fin. The flippers and tail are thin and large in relation to the body size, which is about 2-2.2 meters in males and 2.4-2.6 m in females.

COLLECTA is making for 2013 the first Susu toy I know. I'm always very pleased to welcome a new specie, especially it it is nicely depicted. I whope you will enjoy.
The model scale is between 1:15 and 1:19.

Thanks for the walkaround! Sad(o)): I'm getting even mroe impatient and can't wait for the pilot whale or Ganges River dolphin to show up in a shop near me. I'm glad that finally another company has made a river dolphin. Possibly in the future CollectA might release other species of cetaceans that aren't commonly seen on the market.
