Colossal Squid (Happy Kin Toys - Sea Life).
« on: October 26, 2014, 09:52:34 PM »
Hello friends, this is the figure of Colossal Squid (Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni) Robson, 1925 of Happy Kin Toys - Sea Life. Total lenght is 240 mm. Little is known about the life of this creature, but it is believed to feed on prey such as chaetognatha, large fish such as the Patagonian toothfish, and other squid in the deep ocean using bioluminescence. The colossal squid is thought to have a slow metabolic rate, needing only around 30 grams (1.1 oz) of prey daily. Estimates of its energetic demands suggest it is a slow-moving ambush predator, using its large eyes primarily for predator detection rather than active hunting.













Happy Kin Toys is a toy brand that it is specialize in toy animal playsets. It has prodiced some figures of anmals and dinosaurs with a really nice quality. This is one of the best examples of this. Sculpt, colors and details are really awesome. I Think that it is the firts figure/ toy of this animal specie. I bouhgt this figure the last monday in a great store  ^-^.

Judging from the set that it was included with, it appears that Happy Kin is somehow related to Nayab/Lontic, as I recognize the two sharks in the same box.
