The Komodo dragon is the largest lizard in the world. An ambush predator, it waits in the high grass for small rodents, birds and other reptiles. It tries to bite them with its short, sharp teeth. If it succeeds, the animals do not die because of the bite, but because of a poisonous fluid that it transmits via glands in its mouth. Fun fact: The Komodo dragon can detect its prey at a distance of up to 9.5 km.
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.
