Southlands Replicas Diprotodon optatum
This Diprotodon optatum figure (SR00019) is from a new series created by an Australian store (MiniZoo), specializing in the wonderful and unique animals found on the island continent.
Or in this case, no longer living there!
Approximately 16.5 cm long and 11 cm tall. WARNING: Small Parts. Not for children under 3 years.
Fun facts about the Diprotodon: Every detail is included from the “two forward teeth” from which the Diprotodon name is derived, to the rear-facing pouch which was a classic feature of the female of the species (similar to today’s wombat). Diprotodons were the largest marsupial to have ever lived with males growing up to 3-4 meters in length (similar in size & weight to a hippopotamus). (from the MiniZoo Australia website)
