Pelican Eel (Safari Ltd. - Incredible Creatures)
« on: December 30, 2012, 06:56:34 PM »
Walk-around of the Incredible Creatures Pelican Eel, Eurypharynx pelecanoides Vaillant, 1882. If you stretch it out it's approximately 420 mm long. Pelican eels can grow to about 1 m length but they are normally more elongate and wouldn't really have a larger head than the figure has, so the scale is more or less life size. I was about to write "the only true deep-sea fish Safari Ltd. currently offers" but it has apparently just been retired since I couldn't locate it on Safari's website anymore. :'(















Edit 2017-02-07: Fixed broken image urls.

A bizarre looking animal, to be sure ;)

They came flying from far away, now I'm under their spell....

Yes, I noticed that just when I wrote this thread and wanted to include a link to the figure at Safari's website and it was gone from there. :-\ I guess now is the right time to get one, seems to be still available through online stores (but for how long?).
A bizarre looking animal, to be sure ;)
Yes, it's so strange how huge the mouth is but the cranium itself is actually really tiny and doesn't reach much behind the eyes.
