Life Cycle of a Mosquito (Safari LTD - Safariology)
« on: July 07, 2018, 04:26:29 AM »
Later than expected, a personal request from Dr. Admin, the Life Cycle of a Mosquito, by Safari LTD, Safariology, originally released in 2014. As someone who studies the medical aspects of insects as well, this was a welcome treat! Over a short period, Safari LTD released several insect life cycles and this is probably my favorite.

The mosquito is not attributable to a given species (although the egg raft and length of palps in the adult rule-out the malaria-spreading anophelines).

Not a bad set; the adult is a bit stout, but that is to be expected when real mosquitoes are spindly: the figure needs to be sturdy enough to prevent breakage and not be too sharp as to risk injury to children.

On to the pics:

larva:

Lovely, thanks so much! These Life Cycle sets are great. Did you make that diorama? :o

I've checked off this set in the requests thread. :)

It is very well done! It reminds me I should organise another ATF diorama contest. Maybe in 2019...
