Old World Monkeys - superfamily Cercopithecoidea
« on: September 10, 2016, 07:23:58 PM »
Old world monkeys belong to parvorder Catarrhini (down-nosed), which also includes superfamily Hominoidea, the apes, which are not covered here. The single family Cercopithecidae is divided into subfamilies Cercopithecinae and Colobinae. Cercopithecinae is the guenons, mangabeys, baboons, and macaques. Colobinae is the leaf-eating monkeys with ruminant stomachs: proboscis, langurs, snub-nosed, and colobus. All of these monkeys are native to Africa or Asia.

The purpose of this thread is to show examples of different species, comparing the size of figures to the Schleich guy. Several species that were once exclusive to Play Visions are now represented by other makers.

Cercopithecinae

Diana monkey, Cercopithecus diana, by CollectA
Black crested mangabey, Lophocebus aterrimus, by Nayab
Mandrill, Mandrillus sphinx, by Play Visions
Guenon, Cercopithecus sp., by Britains
Baboon, Papio sp., by Safari / Monkey Toob


Cercopithecinae / Macaca

Lion-tailed macaque, Macaca silenus, by Chap Mei
Celebes crested macaque, Macaca nigra, by Mojo
Formosan rock macaque, Macaca cyclopis, by Kaiyodo
Japanese macaque, Macaca fuscata, by Nature Techni Colour
Rhesus macaque, Macaca mulatta, by Nayab


Colobinae

Proboscis monkey, Nasalis larvatus, by Mojo
Abyssinian black-and-white colobus, Colobus guereza, by Kaiyodo / Yotsuba
Golden snub-nosed monkey, Rhinopithecus rexellana, by Kaiyodo / Furuta
Southern plains gray langur (pair), Semnopithecus dussumieri, by Bandai

This collection is incomplete. Your photos are invited.
For more images see Toy Animal. Info .

Edit: Corrected that Formosa rock macaque was made by Kaiyodo, not Nayab.

Wonderful new thread, stemturtle! :) I think there are probably more figures around than those representing Platyrrhini. However, I don't have that many which aren't already shown in your photos. But still...


Papio hamadryas (Linnaeus, 1758); Hamadryas Baboon. Furuta ChocoEgg Funny Animals Series 6 model No. 01.




It seems the Mandrill, Mandrillus sphinx (Linnaeus, 1758), is quite overrepresented which is also true in my collection. From top to bottom: Furuta Choco Egg Funny Animals Series 7 model No. 40, Papo, and Schleich Wild Life 2014.

Northern plains gray langur, Semnopithecus entellus, by Play Visions, subfamily: Colobinae

The ID marked on the figure is Langur. This species is difficult to distinguish from the southern plains gray langur, Semnopithecus dussumieri (see the pair by Bandai). We accept the identification posted in ToyAnimal.Info.

It's been a while since last posting. That is how long it took to find this rare figure on eBay. The good news is that they are out there.
