thanks Jetoar,

You are such a prolific poster, I was hoping you'd contribute to some of my arthropods posts :)

And thanks for adding species/organisms and manufacturer.

I have a few duplicates of it, I'll set them aside the next chance I get.

This is the original, the one made before Chap Mei started making Animal Planet figures, so its pretty hard to find. Chap Mei makes one similar to it though, you can get it in some of the ocean themed sets.

With the loss of so many images due to Photobucket, will slowly revisit these taxa-specific posts with fresh images!

Today we visit the Japanese crayfish, Cambaroides japonicus (De Haan, 1841). This species is endemic to Japan where it is considered vulnerable. This species is rather popular among Japanese manufacturers, and is often made in both brown and blue color variants:

above water, left to right:
1. Kaiyodo (Capsule Q Animatales - Tohoku)
2. F-toys (Creatures of the Waterside)
3. Kaiyodo (Natural Monuments of Japan)
4. F-toys (Creatures of the Waterside) [blue variant]

below water, left to right:
1. Kaiyodo (Capsule Q Animatales - Tohoku) [blue variant]
2. Kaiyodo (Natural Monuments of Japan) [blue variant - Special Release]
3. Yujin (Shrimps and Crabs Collection)

Today we visit the mud crab (also known as a mangrove crab or black crab), Scylla serrata (Forsskal, 1775). This is an economically-important 'food' crab native to mangroves and estuaries in the Indo-Pacific [my mini diorama here might not be the best for this species, but it's currently the only marine one I have]. The figure on the right is a 'small' one by AAA (they also made a much larger model); the one on the left is by Kaiyodo (Aquatales Polyresin Series).
