Hello.
I'm starting to collect miniatures of extant animals.
I've just bought 2 ChocoQ figures and I love them.



I've got the Nile Crocodile and the yellow fish eating other fish.
I'd like to get more figures of 2 species interacting, but I lack knowledge about this subject.

Which other figures showing any interaction between 2 species do you like?
Its not necesary that the relashionship to be predation.

Thanks in advance.

The Kayiodo Yokohama Zoo set (http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~CH2M-NITU/zoorasiae.htm) has a few figures with two species, I dont think the actually interact in nature, but the species are displayed together.

Colorata did a figure with the fish, Stonogobiops, with its shrimp symbiont, Alpheus randalli.

Wooaahh. Most of them are really nice.
I love the "connect toguether" concept.

Thank you very much Bmathison1972, Brontodocus and Sauroid.
Now is time to look for them in Japanese sites I guess. Any suggestion besides Yahoo Auctions?

Any other 2+ especies figure?

Really beautiful recopilation of figures. Kaiyodo Souvenirs Entomologiques Saturnia pavonia I think it is a good example too  ^-^.

The shrimp is Alpheus randalli :)

I will update my database!

Any guesses on the various inverts on the other sets!?  :P

Thank you guys. These are truly amazing figures.
And I'm pretty sure there're more to check.
While looking for these I found this one:

Kitan Club Toba Aquarium Dugong & Turtle

Megalosaurus, where do you live? If you are in the US, you can get tons of Japanese/gashapon figures just on ebay. They may come from abroad, but they are easy to acquire.

Asahiyama Zoo


i dont remember whether this starfish/shrimp set is by Yujin or Epoch (dont remember the species either although i have two sets)

bmathison1972

the harlequin shrimp and starfish are by Epoch. I did a walkaround of this set.

I live in México, so shipping cost usually is not cheap. Anyway I'll check ebay for free shipping. Thank you for the suggestion. I got my first figures from Brett and some others by a proxy service. But it has proven to be a hard task to get this figures as majority of those are discontinued (and searching the right kanji for each figure is not a pleasant task).

Unfortunately, your task won't ever get easier I'm afraid--most of these do have very limited runs, and were mostly available only in Japan. I find that if you use YAJ or Jauce you can search at least somewhat in English--but if you let Brett know exactly what you are searching for, his Japanese sources can help hunt them down in the auctions.
