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.

Thylacoleo

It is so interesting, when you discover new for you animals by collecting animal figurines. It is very interesting animal, the only one native carnivore in Australia! And this replica is absolutely stunning! All anatomy features are saved there; dynamic pose and opened mouth make this figurine mandatory for buying for people who loves unusual animals! I also like coloring and painting very much: stripes look so much beautiful while there is no any painting defect! Thank you so much, Southland Replicas, and greetings from Russia!
