" This model is a Eland Bull, it is harmless. It is brown painted and it has long black horns. "

1940 catalogue description

" These animals are the largest of the antelope family and are found only in Africa, Syria and Arabia. They are graceful but extremely powerful and the strong twisted horns form excellent weapons of defence. A fully-grown bull weighs between 800 to 1,200 lbs. "
