PostSubject: Show us your figures showing interspecific animal relationships!   Fri Nov 01, 2013 1:25 am

November will have a different and easier Show us yours topic.
As we had two big SUY treads in October this one will be different although December will follow the traditional way.
This time we want to make a tread showing figures that represent any kind of animal relationships where at least two different species interact.
It can be predation, parasitism, mutualism, commensalism or any other.
Of course it should be presented for a single figure an not mixing different ones. Laughing
I recomend that any member shouldn't present more than one figure per day and preferably write something related with the figure if possible.
These are not rules, only suggestions, the goal is to build an interesting topic about animal relationships and their representations in toy shape and left something interesting to young students or avid collectors! cheers
I am sure we'll find many interesting figures and even those that have anything to show will enjoy! Very Happy

From Lennart, I received that dramatic representation of a golden eagle hunting a red fox. This is a very old figurefrom Danish brand Reisler, released in 1955 with the number 2024.
It is obviously an example of predation with the particularity of one of the most successful predators of the world being transformed in prey.
Golden eagles usually hunt hares, rabbits, ground squirrels and other little mammals, but sometimes they also hunt larger prey like foxes, ungulates or coyotes for example.

Golden eagles hunting foxes is a very known tradition in Central Asia where locals train the birds to hunt foxes and other animals in a kind of falconry.
Below a very known video about this ritual

My favorite figure of this kind in my collection comes from Colorata box. It's scene from Borneo, includes [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] ,  [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] . These animals are shown together because they share the same, fascinating environment - Bornean jungle. You can see more creatures from this place on [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for example  Very Happy

For me it's very meaningful all these animals are shown around the tree because each of these animals' lives depends of trees, of the jungle. This scene contain also my fav figure of orang-utan. In my opinion figures of Orangutans standing on the ground are only half as good as these with climbing or doing these strange acrobatics. Climbing or hanging orangutan is just much more true,  isn't it?    Very Happy  
I know this green background is a bit naive but OK, I just couldn't stop myself of using it  Razz
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

And I think this counts as a one figure yes?  Very Happy

Glad you like this set friends! cheers
Can't wait to see this topic growing, I think two species figures are not very common (however not so rare in, for example, Japanese companies ranges) Very Happy

Thanks Ana and Susanne for opening the horizons of this tread. Very Happy
There are examples in almost all brands, Schleich, Papo, Safari, Bullyland, CollectA, K&M, Lineol, Veb Plaho, etc. I think Mojo is one of the brands I can't find an example. I think if people check carefully their collections we'll be able of building a very interesting topic. Very Happy

So, twisting this a little, I suppose this can fit the topic:

Thanks for your contribution S4U! Now my 2nd...

commensalism is a kind of relationship between two organisms where one organism benefits without affecting the other.
Remoras, are fishes with a distinctive first dorsal fin that works like a sucker and allow the fish to attach to other larger marine animals like whales, sharks, turtles, etc.
Remoras use their hosts as transport, protection and also to feed material that their hosts drop.
Though, there is some controversy about the real relationships between these animals once some remoras clean the teeth of their hosters and there is a report of a lemon shark devouring a remora.
This K&M Nature Tube lemon shark with remoras shows clearly a relation of commensalism where remoras are being transported.

Thanks S4U and Florian! Very Happy
Excelent contributions Takama and Christophe, the advantage of this subject is that iit is transversal to all collections and eras. Also we can see some unknown figures, I never noticed before the Ichthyosaurus and the Auburn bear! So wonderful figures! cheers

oxpeckers are two species of birds,  the red-billed oxpecker and the yellow-billed oxpecker --
The oxpeckers perform a symbiotic relationship with the large, hoofed mammals of Africa, giraffes, zebras, antelopes, rhinos and Cape buffalos.
There is some debate as to whether the relationship between the oxpecker and its host truly is symbiotic, or whether the oxpecker is semi-parasitic.
These birds feed tiks and also the blood of the animal, receive the protection from them but also can allert the hosts when they detect danger.

The Safari 2227-29, released in 2008, represents a Cape buffalo with two yellow-billed oxpeckers on its back.

Thank you for showing this figure Roger! It's indeed very interesting example! Very Happy
For me these birds on Safari buffalo were previously a little, tiny bit annoying because their very bright coloring doesn't look too natural and too well with dark grey buffalo. But I think these birds makes this figure more interesting and educative Very Happy  And if they are better painted they would be really super nice. Very Happy

Lemon shark from the other hand is really super nicely done figure and I see it for the first time. I love the silvery color of remoras, it looks lovely with dark, matte olive green (?) shark, such a beautiful figure! Very Happy

Christophe, these bears are also very nice Very Happy And nice to see examples of prehistoric life too Takama sunny 

And show jumping set by Schleich is really nice as well, thanks for sharing 4U! cheers


BTW can the Safari LTD Asian elephant with log be shown here as elephant with woodworms? Razz

I think it is a uuhm, frog with lust.... Sometimes frogs and toads mount fishes or even other creatures living in the water o.0 (I may be wrong, but I thought I red that on the Internet, somewhere.)
