PostSubject: The MÖJO FUN 2012 Californian sea lion Walkaround   Mon Feb 18, 2013 8:46 pm

MÖJO FUN made in 2012 a Californian sea lion. At last I managed to catch this model which complete, and even more than that, my herd Cool

I know some of you have already talk and show pics about it and I hope you don't mind if I add a walkaround Wink

The California sea lion (Zalophus californianus) is a coastal eared seal native to western North America. It is one of five species of sea lion. Its natural habitat ranges from southeast Alaska to central Mexico, including the Gulf of California. Sea lions are sexually dimorphic, males are larger than females, and have a thicker neck and protruding crest. They mainly haul-out on sandy or rocky beaches.
Sea lions feed on a number of species of fish and squid, and are preyed on by killer whales and white sharks.
As an otariid, the California sea lion relies on its foreflippers to propel itself when swimming. This form of aquatic locomotion, along with its streamlined body, effectively reduces drag underwater. Its foreflipper movement is not continuous; the animal glides in between each stroke. The flexibility of its spine allows the sea lion to bend its neck backwards far enough to reach its hindflippers. This allows the animal to make dorsal turns and maintain a streamlined posture. When moving on land, the sea lion is able to turn its hindflippers forward and walk on all fours.
Sea lions have color vision, though it is limited to the blue-green area of the color spectrum. This is likely an adaptation for living in marine coastal habitats.

Great walk around, Christophe! I think nobody noticed that you love the head of that figure. I also think the head is the best part of it. Very Happy
I only think she needs a polishment too. Wink It is interesting that in this case females are often featured while males are rare. That is surely because Circus used females often and not due to their breeding behaviour. Though, I don't understand why they are called sea lions and not sea lionesses. scratch
Where is the earless one? scratch scratch Very Happy

About polishment I will see, because the marks are less visible on the model than on pics.

I guess you are right for the Circus female Wink Despite this, at the Amiens zoo there is a Sealion, not lioness, which is know as a great Soprano. It is the great star of the sealion show Sad(o)):
My daughter is a big fan Laughing

the earless one will leave my shelves soon Wink I'm on the way to my spring cleaning...

Well, I won't polish mine, I confess he also enjoy it much better in my hands than in photos. Very Happy
Poor earless sea lion, the species you identified has minimal ears, maybe you identified it correctly and the sculptor forgot the glasses? geek Very Happy
Really, have you a link of this sea lion performing in Amiens? Very Happy Here kids also love to interact with sea lions in Lisbon Zoo, it looks they are friendly creatures. Very Happy

Wonderful pictures Christophe!! I love this model. I also noticed that the blemished on my model showed up more clearly in pictures than they appear in person. This is just a model that is prone to getting some marks I'm afraid. But it is worth it: the matte surface texture is gorgeous (and exactly what I was hoping for in the case of the Pilot Whale, but which the latter doesn't seem to have, even though I realize it's unfair to ask that of every company).

Mojo's Sea Lion(ess) is so nice. Your pictures really bring that out. Thank you!

OK, I think it's time to show how Mojo Sea lioness ( Razz ) looks after polishing :) I prefer little bit more shiny look of her now Very Happy





I think it's natural for sea lions to shine, isn't it? Very Happy

Here comparison with Brumen Sea lion female, sister of Schleich...
