Agnatha
« on: October 16, 2016, 05:02:13 AM »
These fishes are really fascinating to me and I am learning a lot of interesting things. Lampreys (Hyperoartia) have no jaws, Haghfishes (Myxiniformes) don't even have vertebrae, and this makes them a residual and very basal group not only of fishes, and not only of vertebrates, but of chordata themselves.

Now the point is: is there some figure of these animals out there? I never knew of any in the catalogues of the most famous producers, and also searching the forum gave very little satisfaction.

On the other hand, I have made an old species of this group: Tullymonstrum gregarium.

Thanks Jetoar, very interesting models, but unfortunately shipping costs from America to Italy are too high.

I have to assume that there is no Lamprey or Aghfish made by commercial producers?

I'm fairly certain the only commercially available ones are the CollectA lamprey attacking a Pliosaurus.

Stargatedalek you mean this:



Unfortunately you don't get much of the detailed aspects of the fish...

Technically...I'm in Canada (Fauna Figures is my store)! But I agree, it's really expensive to mail across the Atlantic--I have had customers do it, many times, but I often have to work out something with shipping. I have found that it's almost impossible to get a decent rate wtih a tracking number. The best I can find is $47 to Italy! There are less expensive options, but they don't have tracking, which can be a problem.
