BULL SHARK FIGURINE
PAPO | 3 years & up
Realistic detailing and incredible paintwork are what set PAPO's marine animal figurines ahead of the rest. Each figurine is hand painted and manufactured according to strict EN-71 specifications; with meticulous attention paid to details like scale, posture, weight, and even texturing for optimal realism.
Featuring the same short, blunt snout and small eyes of its real counterpart, this amazingly life-like Bull Shark will instill fear in even the bravest of seafarers. Its wonderful detailing is accentuated with its near-perfect airbrushing, complete with just a tad of its sharp, serrated teeth peeking out from its jaw in menace. Like all PAPO figurines, this Bull Shark is made from non-toxic plastic and is BPA and phthalate-free, making it a safe choice for play even with our younger ones.
SCARY BULL SHARK FACTS!
• The bull shark might look rather basic, but proportionately speaking, they have the strongest bite of any shark whose jaw strength has been measured. Nobody knows exactly why the bull shark evolved such a powerful mouth, but it may have something to do with its diet: Bull sharks eat everything from oysters to turtles to other bull sharks, and their herculean jaws might make it easier to tear through a wide range of shells, scales, and skins.
• If bull sharks were humans, they'd be playground baddies. Bull sharks are not just aggressive and bull-headed in nature, they also enjoy bullying their prey with head butts before they eat it. :(
• The bull shark has around 50 rows of teeth in its jaws, and each row has about 7 teeth, for a grand total of around 350 teeth in its mouth at any given time. When one tooth is lost, the tooth behind it moves forward, sometimes as quickly as within a day, to replace the lost one. A shark may lose and re-grow more than 20,000 teeth over the course of its lifetime! Really not a fish you want to mess around with in the ocean, for sure!
