( 2 Reviews )

Southlands Thylacoleo figurine stands on three legs, with it's front right leg lifted in an attacking and agressive pose. The jaw of this extraordinary toy animal is open revealing his wombat-like top and lower teeth. With fine hair details and a hand-painted finish, this 1:15 scale Thylacoleo Carnifex is a must-have figurine for any collector!

The Thylacoleo (also known as a Marsupial Lion) was the largest carnivorous (meat eating) marsupial to have ever lived on earth. It had large stabbing incisors and 4-6 cm long shearing blades on the side of the jaw that slid against each other like a pair of scissors. The Thylacoleo also featured an oversized thumb claw that would have been used for grabbing it's prey but also enable it to climb trees in order to ambush and attack from above. Pound for pound it had what was possibly the most powerful bite of any mammal, living or extinct - roughly equivalent to today's African lion.

Hyperrealistic extinct mammal figure

One of the most beautiful figures of extinct mammals ever made by a company in the toy market. A great figure and most importantly with a detailed painting, a beautiful texture and very realistic and finished. The same thing I can say about thylacinus from the same company.
