There are only a few sharks that are really dangerous to people.  These include the tiger shark, the dreaded white shark, and the somewhat lesser known bull shark.  The tiger shark gets its name from its long, dark stripes, which are reminiscent of a tiger.  It prefers to eat turtles, cracking their shells with its sharp teeth.  Its diet also includes rays, sea snakes, seals and birds, but it will basically devour everything that isn't nailed down.  Car tyres, parts of ships and boats, nails, jewellery, clothing, and books have even been found in the stomachs of tiger sharks.  They even eat when they are not hungry, and humans consider them to be one of the most dangerous of the around 500 (mostly harmless) shark species.

Fun fact:  Tiger sharks are very big, conspicuously striped sharks that can grow up to 5.5 metres long.

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.
