Although many deserts are scorching hot and lack rainfall, these forms of wildlife manage to live there. This Toob contains a horned lizard, budding saguaro cactus, road runner, scorpion, rattlesnake, coyote, big horn ram, bobcat, armadillo, mountain lion and prairie dog. History: Because deserts are so challenging to live in for both animals and plant life, species that live in the desert need special adaptations to survive. Plants, like the cactus found in this Toob, are often very tough with little to no leaves and have deep root systems. On the other hand, most animals are nocturnal, and come out at night when the temperature drops. While it may not be their native habitat, weâ€™re sure the animals in this Toob would welcome a stay at your house, out of the heat and with plenty of water to drink! Characteristics: Individually hand painted and professionally sculpted for true to life accuracy, these figurines are excellent for imaginative play, educational purposes, or as additions to a diorama or collection. Best of all, with our Toob you donâ€™t have to endure the desertâ€™s intense heat to observe and interact with its incredible wildlife! The figures in this set are excellent Montessori toys for lessons about animals and the different habitats where they live. Size: 1.5 inches long, 1.5 inches wide, and 12.8 inches tall, this Toob is a bit larger than the size of a standard American ruler and contains 11 figurines that range from 1.25 to 3.75 inches tall. All of our products are Non-toxic and BPA free 11 pieces per TOOBÂ®. Contents Cannot Be Purchased Individually.
