PostSubject: Bandai Galapagos set walkaround   Sun Jan 27, 2013 3:15 pm

Hello friends :) This month I bought quite interesting set of animals, birds and reptiles from Galapagos island. Islands are unique places of our planet, because of isolation, they are often homes for unique species. Fauna on Galapagos islands is fascinating example of that rule. Very Happy

I think, if I would ever start diorama, it would be diorama of one island, perhaps one of Galapagos islands cat

In Bandai set each animal came with additional natural elements like rocks or plants. They are, in most cases not attached to animal but some of the animals can't stand on flat ground. Whenever it was possible I display animals without these elements because I prefer animals alone :)

Here are reptiles from this set grouped together :)

Review of each of the reptiles first :)

Land Galapagos Iguana, species is endemic for Galapagos islands, You can read more on wikipedia [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

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

In the set are two figures of marine iguanas, one swimming and one heating itself on the rock :) They are only modern lizards that search food in the ocean Very Happy These reptiles exist in in number of subspecies but I don't know which of them are represented in Bandai figures. More info can be also found on wikipedia [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

First goes swimming one, I think it's my favorite from this pair

Even though it is representation of the biggest specie of tortoise on the World, it is quite small figure, here size comparison with baby tortoise by Schleich

My favorite bird from this set is Great Frigatebird (Fregata minor). Figure show male sitting on the nest, showing his red gular sac, iconic element of this beautiful bird Very Happy More info here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

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

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

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

Frigetebird is not attached to the nest, however he looks strange when put on the flat ground.

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

Another lovely and colorful bird from the set is Blue Footed Booby with chick. Strange fact about this bird is in Polish language it's name sounds Głuptak what means "stupid bird", the name doesn't suit this fascinating species with unique hunting technique in my opinion :) More info to read here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

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

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

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

And here compared with Kaiyodo Blue Footed Booby

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

And now the bird which no one could call stupid, in fact it's very intelligent bird which uses tools to catch food: Woodpecker finch. Here shown with sticks, searching food in the fallen tree :) Here more info [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

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

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

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

There was also penguin in the set, Galapagos penguin (no surpise Laughing) he came with rock but he can easily stand without it too :) The only penguin species that lives North to the Equator in the wild Very Happy Perhaps the only figure of this species scratch More to read [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The animals came with card:

and here it is scanned

I must say it's very easy to get fascinated by Galapagos fauna, it's absolutely unique. This set remind me how amazing treasure is life on our planet I love you I love you I love you

Wow congratulations, Anna! That set is wonderful!

And.. it brings some memories to me.
When I was a kid in the 80s, our family has just gotten a VCR player and my first recorded tape was a document about the Galapagos Islands. I used to watch it over and over again...
I regocnize most of the species in this Bandai set from that document :)

That swimming marine iguana is probably my favourite! But I like the frigate bird a lot too. They are all amazing. :)

When I was about 10 years old I remember reading an article in National Geographic magazine about Darwin's finches and his time on the Galapagos.

I have been fascinated in these islands ever since. So going there would be a dream come true.
