Wednesday/ a lioness, for my collection

I finally bought the lioness figure at the Red Balloon toy store nearby, to add to my animal collection.

When it comes to lions, it is almost exclusively the females that go hunting. Their prey are usually faster than they are, so they have to first creep up to a close distance from different sides and then sprint towards their prey. Then when the prey had been caught, the males are always the first ones to eat.

Amazing detail in toy maker Schleich’s hand-painted lioness animal figure (it’s 2 in. tall, 4 in. long).  Disclaimer — or my attempt at one: after watching a devastating documentary on how the planet is being poisoned with plastic packaging & products, I guess I should boycott plastic things .. but at least this is not a single-use item, and it should not end up in the ocean or in a landfill any time soon.
