Hammerhead sharks feed on sardines, herring and mackerel. In the past it was thought that they killed prey by hitting it with their heads. Now we know that the unusual head shape allows improved vision. Just like the hammerhead shark from Schleich® Wild Life, the eyes are located on the outside left and right of their head and give the predator a 360 degree view. The snout allows them to sense electromagnetic signals of their prey.Fun Fact: Most sharks are loners. Not hammerheads. They live in groups of up to 100 animals.
Schleich products are made of various plastics and paints. These are carefully selected on the basis of the specific requirements. Among the most important plastics types we use are polyvinyl chloride (PVC), thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), actrylnitril butadiene styrene (ABS) and other typical plastics for toys. Starting at the material suppliers, there is strict scrutiny from our quality assurance representatives. The paints used are perfectly adapted to the various types of plastic and have the greatest mechanical and chemical resistance. They ensure that Schleich products last a long time and make all of our products resistant to perspiration, saliva and wear – meaning they are completely safe to play with. The product is released for production only when it meets all the laws, standards and guidelines.
