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. Even smaller figurines like this Sawfish figurine does not escape PAPO's craftsmanship excellence, featuring the same quality and attention to detail in its sculpting and colouring that makes it uncannily close to the real specimen.
Like all PAPO figurines, this Sawfish is made from non-toxic plastic and is BPA and phthalate-free, making it a safe choice for play even with our younger ones.
TOOTHY SAWFISH FACTS!
• The so-called 'teeth' on the sawfish's long snout are not actually teeth. They are modified scales. A sawfish's real teeth are located inside its mouth, which is on the fish's underside.
• Their long 'saws', while an effective tool for hunting and defense, also make them vulnerable, as they’re easily entangled in fishing gear. Accidentally getting caught in fishing nets targeting other fish is one of the biggest threats Sawfishes face today. :(
• The Ancient Mayans used to bury their dead with teeth of sawfish. This is because the sawfish was recognized as containing powerful spirits that could protect humans against supernatural enemies.
