Those two butterflies are not tiny; they are actually life-sized! The Yujin insects were molded after real specimens so they are all life-sized.

Well it looks like we are getting more taxonomic diversity today...

Next up, funnelweb spiders. I have two species but because most figures represent one of them, I am showcasing both here.

NOTE: Since the original post, the species here have been split into two families/

FAMILY: DIPLURIDAE (funnelweb mygalomorphs).

I. Sydney funnelweb spider, Atrax robustus.

A. Large figure by Bullyland.

B. Smaller figures.
1. Science and Nature (Animals of Australia)
2. Takara Tomy A.R.T.S. (Venomous Spiders)
3. Cadbury (Yowies - UK release)
4. Cadbury (Yowies - Australian release)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

FAMILY: MECICOBOTHRIIDAE (sheet funnelweb spider, dwarf tarantulas). [updated 7/10/2017]

I. Hexura fulva.

I ment they are tiny even life-sized Very Happy I didn't know Yujin insects were life sized. If one day you would find enough time to show a Yujin insects walkaround or review, you would please me and not only me I guess.
