Coelacanth ( Kaiyodo Aquatales)
« on: September 30, 2014, 01:34:55 AM »
Here is series 1 Kaiyodo Aquatales Coelacanth in all of her glory! It's a polyresin figure like most of the series. It's a beautiful figure.

Isn't it a gorgeous figure? And I guess it's the first ever figure of a juvenile coelacanth. Simply wonderful and a superb walk-around as always, too, OkapiBoy! 8)

How do you know it is a juvenile?

I have been resisting--I have several coelacanths, after all, but it's just so pretty!

I forgot where but somewhere I've read this figure listed as Indonesian Coelacanth (fingerling). But a juvenile Indonesian coelacanth has been filmed and it looks the same as the figure with proportionally larger fins, especially the dorsals, pectorals, and anal ones, and they also have a lighter coloured margin. I only found a very small photo right now, the specimen was approx. a foot long:

When you order this figure from HLJ, it says "Coelacanth (Fingerling)" on the bill.

I never realized it was L. menadoensis. Now it's on my list.
