CollectA Reticulated Giraffe #88534 Review:The figure features a great pose, with its neck stretched out and its feet offset as if it may be walking across the savannah. The pose is very lifelike and captures the grace and elegance of the giraffe.
One of the standout features of this figure is the great looking mane, with its nice texture and dark brown paint. The texture of the fur is well-defined, giving the figure a realistic appearance. The dark brown color of the mane is a great contrast against the lighter color of the rest of the fur.
The figure also has a nice texture overall, with a good feel to the touch.
The tan color between the spots provides an excellent complement against the dark brown spots. This attention to detail and texture adds to the overall realism of the figure.
We believe this to be a male figure.
Reticulated Giraffe Information:The reticulated giraffe, also known as the Somali giraffe, is a subspecies of giraffe that is found in Somalia, Kenya, and Ethiopia. It is one of nine recognized subspecies of giraffe, and it is known for its distinctive coat pattern of large, polygonal patches that are separated by narrow white lines, giving it a net-like or "reticulated" appearance.
The reticulated giraffe is one of the tallest land animals in the world, with males standing up to 18 feet tall and females slightly shorter. They are herbivorous and primarily feed on leaves and buds of trees, especially acacia trees. Their long necks and prehensile tongues help them reach high branches that are out of reach for other animals.
The reticulated giraffe is listed as endangered due to habitat loss, poaching, and civil unrest. Their numbers have declined by almost 50% over the past three decades, with an estimated population of fewer than 15,000 individuals remaining in the wild.
