Lions are the only big cats whose males have a mane which makes them clearly distinguishable from females of the species.  The larger the mane of a lion, the more frightening it is for intruders of its territory, which it defends.  Lions are the only ones who hunt together in prides - although this task is usually left to the lionesses.  Since they are not very fast, unlike the cheetah, they use their strength as a pride.  They prowl from different directions, circle their prey and use the element of surprise.  That way they can kill large ungulates such as wildebeest and zebras and even buffalos and weak elephants.

Fun fact:  It takes 5 years for the mane of a lion to grow fully.

Schleich products are made of various plastics and dyes, which are carefully selected to meet the respective requirements.  Most typically plastics used are polyvinyl chloride (PVC), thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), in addition to other plastics typical for toys.  Even the material suppliers are subject to strict controls by our quality officers. The dyes used are optimally adapted to the different types of plastic and demonstrate top-rate mechanical and chemical resistance.  They ensure the high durability of Schleich products and make all Schleich pieces saliva and sweat proof as well as abrasion-resistant, and thus ensure that they are completely safe for playing with. Only once a product meets fully all international laws, standards and guidelines for toys is it released for production.  All Schleich articles and materials comply with the national and international toy requirements applicable worldwide, as well as the new European Toy Safety Directive 2009/48/EC and DIN EN 71. 

Recommended for 3+.

We love Schleich's realistic animal figures, a quality toy that stimulates the child's imagination as well as teaching them about animals and wildlife.
