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.

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.
