Hello friends! Not long ago I,ve got from our friend Roger (the Great Mojo-rator) the beaver model by Mojo. The model is cute and accurate made. The morphology of beaver body is more realistic. Thanks dear Roger! cheers And now Mojo-boy has meeting with his international family! They alltogether are building the Great dam on the river in my home! Wink

P.S. BTW excuse me for bad camera I have,nt better now... Neutral

... our hero...






... with his family, left to right: father (Papo), mother (Schleich), elder brother (Collecta), younger brother (Mojo), little sister (Nayab)... Laughing













... family on the building of the Great Dam... Laughing

What a beautiful family Sergey! I'm glad you liked it and I'm happy the Mojo beaver found a great family! cheers
Is only missing the Uncle Same, known here as Safari American beaver! Wink
I love the detail of the paws, every single digit is carefully sculpted! Very Happy

With the exception of the Papo beaver, the others are all basically in the same position.
Why not make one in a swimming position(like the Papo platypus)?

... near "same position"... Be attentive my friend:
Papo - is sit on two back legs,ok!
Schleich - is standing on 4 legs
Coleecta - is coming
Mojo - is sit and some eating
Nayab - is standing on 4 legs (as Schleich)

It,s almost all positions of this animal! The beaver has,nt many interesting position! Laughing Laughing Laughing

The Mojo beaver is in a different pose from the others... I think the Papo is preparing to diving, maybe the water is too cold, try to wait some time and he dives! Wink

My point is this...there is a lot of "copycatting". Wish these companies would be different(If they want to make a beaver, fine, do it in a swimming/diving position instead of the basic standing), think outside the box(Papo's sitting beaver is different), and try to be more original!

I agree with different poses, mainly when we are seeing what is not the first version of a figure from a brand!
It is very hard to make an animal in a not apealing pose when it is in the first year production! But, for example, Schleich makes another beaver in future, I think they should make it in a different pose from previous!
Simce you know the Nort American fauna, maybe you can help me here, I agree when poses are educational, it means that the figure is represented in a position that shows any characteristic from the species! We can see it in the male CollectA swan, the Safari warthog and in drinking giraffes! As you know, is not usual the completly standing pose in European beavers, it is much more usual with American beavers! Thinking that the Papo is an European species don't you think that the pose was a bad choice??? Or is it an American??? Idea

No, Papo's choice of a sitting beaver was fine. I have friends in Alaska, and I saw a pic of him with a tamed beaver, in a sitting position!

Balty, have you read my complete comment??? This pose is characteristic of American beavers and I think the Papo is an European beaver that usually adopts a pose more like the Mojo beaver, ... or is the Papo beaver an American??

From what I read up on beavers, the Papo looks more like the North American beaver.

I had exactly the same feeling when I've bought the figure and After have some reading, anyway there's nothing really conclusive, unless the pose. Suspect study

... My friends do you both seriously think that "eurasian" beaver can,t has the same pose as "american" beaver? What difference in body morphology of both subspecies you know? I,m surprised! Neutral Christophe my dear help to us! Laughing Wink

If you go to wikipedia.com, there is some good info on the physiological
differences of the North American and European beavers.

Yes, and the bipedal posture is due to the longer shin bones of the American species! Both are able to stand in bipedal pose but this is more usual in New World species even able of some walk in with only two paws! There are some differences but not easy to see in small figures! Maybe Kiki is able to count the number of chromosomes that is different! Wink monkey

While Kiki is counting chromosomes, here goes a picture of the not huge Mojo beaver with the Schleich female lynx, nice size, isn't it? Very Happy

The best way to be sure is to cut the head of your castor and look at the cyclops Foramen magnum. If it is triangular, it means the beaver was american study What a Face Laughing
