I have some interesting facts on wild animals and how you can start a great figurine collection of wild animals. They are known to have existed for over 200 million years and were there with the dinosaurs. An interesting fact about wild animals is that anatomically their skeleton is in many ways similar to our human skeleton.As a true wild animal enthusiast you can start your own collection of wild animals in beautifully designed and crafted blown glass.

There truly is some thing for everyone available.Although we spoke of how wild life has been around for over 200 million years many of the wild animal species across the globe have already been extinct for years or are going into extinction at an alarming rate. Extinction the experts say could be both natural and human driven. In almost all cases the prime cause for extinction has been the loss of habitat due to human activities. As the population grows so does the demand for land to live on and conduct a variety of human development needs and to a large extent this has been the cause for the extinction of a number of species from planet earth.It is important to understand that there are many large species like elephants and the lions which need vast tracts of land to live on and roam about on. However man continues to encroach about animal territory rather relentlessly, destroying the natural habitat of these animals and forcing them to move further and further afield, where they soon die.What you can do to celebrate these animals is to start your own wild animals’ glass figurine collection. If you love to Safari and the wild life get online and start your personal collection.
