Is some hard to identify! I think this greater flamingo is eating a lot of American fast food! Are different species but before new evidences they were accepted as the same species, and American flamingo was a subspecies of greater! So it looks like even scientists were not able to identify them easily! There are some size differences but it certainly doesn't matter! I need to study but you can use as a greater, scientists will not notice it! :)

Well, I was not kidding, is true that its colour is due to their diet!
But American are almost red while Greater are usually from a lighter pink!
In these pictures you can see the two species, the 1st one is the Greater while the 2rd is the American. You even can understand it in their scientific names!

I understand that there's a difference but it's also a fact that we also have some pale Caribbean and some darker Greater flamingo's out there. Since the size isn't important for this occasion, I'll buy it anyway Wink

I agree with you! Soon or later you will collect American fauna!And you could always put it under the Serbian sun to turn it paler! sunny pale Wink
It's a nice addition Robert! :)

PostSubject: Safari Ltd James on Dancing Bells?   Sat Apr 09, 2011 10:35 pm

Why did Safari Ltd James on Dancing Bells retire in 1 year,I mean its a very nice set (I have it :) and its beautiful.
so why did it retire this year when it only came out last year?
are they remaking it like schleich sometimes does?

I would really like to know.

What a fantastic figuere !
I do not know so much about Safai`s horses, - somewhere I have to draw a line if my bank manager shall not have me sent to jail - but this one look SO extraordinarily beautyful.

Do you have it ? Is it as gorgeous as in the photo ?

Yes, it's been out since February. It's really pretty nice. For some reason, there don't seem to be very many white rhinos on the market to compare with this new one, other than the old Wild Safari one and the Wildlife Wonders figure. I really like it. I can't tell if I like it more than the Wildlife Wonders figure or not yet, but it's definitely more dynamic than the old Wild Safari figure...

I am no expert in Safari, but I have this one in a box of the series "Authentics Habitat Collection" - RAINFOREST.

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

The box has item no 6154-04.
The last no, - ei 04, probably refers to the rainforest, as there are 19 different boxes.

3 of these Authentich we know from Schleich, who sold the Dinosaurus I, Forest, and Sealife .

But as I say, I am no expert, perhaps somebody can tell you much more ?

PostSubject: Does anybody have the seadragons ?   Mon Feb 13, 2012 10:34 am

Last night I saw on TV some divers swimming along with a Weedy seadragon.
I Was SO surprised, - it is really large, almost as long as the diver`s arm Shocked
Untill now I always thought they were the size of a seahorse Embarassed

I have always loved seahorses, and now I fell completely for these weird "dragons", and remembered that Safari makes both the "leafy" and the "Weedy" seadragon. Very Happy

Finding them on MPV ( Modelpferdeversand ) I could se they are quite expensive...How big are these models Shocked scratch

Does anybody have them/it ?
I would be very happy to see pictures and know more about them before I decide to get them drunken

Yes, it is pretty big, about 19cm long.

Here is a pic of mine (I think it´s the leafy one I have)

It has a so called bendy tail, so there are some holes in it
