In order to become the leader of the pack, lions must win a duel. The larger their mane, the more respect they are shown by their rival. But not only does it look breath-taking - it also protects the animals from serious injuries on their heads and necks. Schleich manufacture amazingly wonderful accurate models of all sorts of animals, including this Lion Cub model. This Schleich Lion Cub has been beautifully hand painted to give wonderful role play to children and also makes a great collectors item for the nature enthusiast.
