Hello All, I joined last night, while I was restless and couldn't sleep I read emails and Willy linked me here, and I'm glad to be a part of it. I hope to see lots of photos of all the collections, as that is a big way to get my ideas for additions to my dioramas. Nice deep see fish, I love the flat batfish, not sure the real name, but in Florida there is a family that that fish reminds me of that are mostly deep water and called walking batfish. They are related to anglers, and even have a lure like anglers, but it sits under the nose near the mouth and the flick it back and forth, fishing for shrimp. As the shrimp come to investigate the piece of "food" the batfish just sucks it into his mouth. I have kept several of the species that live in shallower water and though they are hard to feed they are fascinating to watch.

Great Fish, I've just bought an AAA Zebra grazing, which was poorly painted so I'm repainting it.

Welcome again Phil! cheers
As you are a fishman like me, you have a lot of knowledge about those creatures, but i m more specialized in the freshwater species, and specially cichlids as you know.
I think i saw those batfish before in a movie or so, their belly-fins are really working like little legs indeed, very fascinating indeed.
We have a fish in the northsea overhere, that has the last spines of the bellyfins seperated, so he can rest and walk on them too.
And he does taste very nice too! Very Happy

Nice new additions Torben!
Strange creatures those deep-sea fish!
I wonder what more strange creatures will come out of the deep in the coming years.

I guess it is this zebra, which Torben has too.
I bought it last year in the Rotterdam Blijdorp Zoo, because it had an original position, and that was before the new Schleich model came of course...
I think, the painting was not so bad at all.
On the picture are two, i think i did send one to Christophe some time ago.

Yes, your Zebras are painted nicely, I said it wrong I meant mine had rubs and the stripes were worn, it probably was as good as yours when first made. Actually, mine is slightly different, the legs aren't as far apart as on yours. Perhaps a later model? I'll have to upload the pictures Very Happy

Yours are a lot nicer than mine, the heads a better shape and the eyes are black. Mine the eyes are orange and the ears are slightly too big. I bought it mainly to repaint, got it very cheap, I think it will look nice once repainted.

Maybe your are other moulds indeed.
But is there AAA written under them, maybe they are just copies, could be possible... confused

I always do this a complete different way.
I go to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
There you see the box, in which you can upload your pictures, i think you understand this, even when it is in German.
When you up-loaded your pic, you can see it in a smaller version.
Then you go to BBCodes, and select this one: BBCode Bild in Originalgröße
Cut the link and paste it here.
After you post your tread, it will appear here on the forum, and you can see it before too under this box, before you even post it.
It must be possible though, to post over the forum too, but that i must sort out.
You hear that from me later then, ok...

Beautiful new additions, Torben. The batfish and anglerfish are stunning, IMHO. I've only had one marine tank in my life, and it housed a small frogfish. He was a beautiful creature, and I named him "Igor" as I thought it most appropriate!

Hello Phil. My apologies for the botched photo posts. I was trying out flickr, but it is obviously not worth the effort. I'll re-do them and many others after I have registered with img.de, which I used previously with some success.

I use imgbox.de for a long time now, and it always worked for me.
Only not, when the pics have too many pixels or so, then the site says, that you have to use another format.
In that case i use photobucket.
It is in German of course, but the things you have to do there are the same as on other sites, so in time you will know how it works out there.
But after some time i saw that my pics vanished here, so i got to be a free meber, and host them there, and now it is no problem anymore. Laughing

Fantastic Torben, great additions. The Crab, is it really huge? About nine or ten inches wide? Because while on Holiday, in the house we stayed in, they had a crab just like that on a shelf for decoration, I didn't think anything of it at the time, but wish I'd had a look for a brand name now...

I too have just got that Rhino and now I am missing only one !

I use to have the whole set of the sea animals. I can remember that they came in a set of 12 and were £12 but my mum said no because they were too expensive. Then she bought them for me when they were reduced to £6. I stupidly gave them to my cousin 4 years ago Rolling Eyes

Hello all, while the iguana figure is a great model it is not an iguana, it is a tuatara.

Tuataras are very interesting animals, there are two species, they live on islands off of the coast of New Zealand and require very cold temps compared to other reptiles to survive. They are most active below 65*F and stress out when temps hit 70*, at 82* they die.

The most interesting facts about tuatara are first, it is the same species that has been identified from more then 65 million year old fossils, so this same species of animal was on the earth at the same time as the dinosaurs, not just extinct relatives of it. Even more amazing is the this creature is not a lizard. It is in it's own family and although it looks just like a lizard it has several features that make it not a lizard. You can tell the difference between a tuatara and an iguana by looking at the teeth and lower jaw, on an iguana the teeth are not as sharp or numerous and the lower jaw has a very large tympanic scale (sometimes called a subtympanic membrane) that is missing in the tuatara.

Great Torben!
But your pointer is a Dalmation indeed, and your green iguana or leguan a tuatara as Phil said.
It misses the spikes on his back to be a green iguana or leguan.... Rolling Eyes Laughing

Does it say "pointer" etc on them, Torben?
Does`nt it often (always?) state the name of the animal on the AAAs ?
