This TOOB features highly detailed and accurate minifigures representing the unique animals found throughout South America including mammals, reptiles, birds and fish.

History: South America is a large continent with a diverse range of ecosystems and climates, including the Andes Mountains and the Amazon River Basin. The rainforests of the Amazon are hugely valuable to the world, in terms of both their biodiversity and the benefit of trees in producing oxygen. The rainforests are under serious threat due to deforestation – forests are being cut down to make way for development of agriculture and farms, as well as human settlements.
Characteristics: The Amazon River Basin and the rainforests of South America are home to some amazing creatures. In the water we have the Arapaima, one of the world’s largest freshwater fish, the Amazon River Dolphin or Boto, with its unique pink coloration, and the Black Caiman, the largest species of caiman. In the trees of the rainforest you have the slow-moving 3 Toed Sloth, the predatory Jaguar, and the Harpy Eagle, which has the largest talons of any bird of prey. Rounding out the set is the unusual looking Giant Anteater, and the largest rodent in the world, the Capybara.
Size: This Toob contains 12 professionally crafted figurines that range from 1.25 to 3.75 inches tall, while the Toob itself measures 1.5 inches long, 1.5 inches wide, and 12.8 inches tall, a bit larger than the size of a standard American ruler.
