Walk-around of the Mexican dwarf crayfish, Cambarellus patzcuarensis Villalobos, 1943 by Banjihan ACE. This small freshwater crustacean occurs in lakes and springs in Michoacan, Chapultepec, Opopeo, and Tzurumutaro, Mexico. One might think this is an unusual choice for a Japanese company, however this species is apparently common in the aquaria trade.

The figure is 40 mm not including appendages, which makes it just under 1:1 (or 1:1 for a small or young specimen). The figure is a solid piece of plastic with no assembly. It is one of a set of 6, each representing different colors, both wild and domestic. When a figure is presented like this, I usually do not make a huge effort to collect every color variant (1-2 or even 3 are OK, but I don't need 6). I picked the brown version as this is closest to the wild type form.

While there are 6 color variants, this could be considered a 'unique figure' as a set, as I am unaware of any other members of this Central American decapod in toy form.

I definite gem for collectors of unusual species; it's also small and doesn't take up much space.

On to the figures!
