PostSubject: Show Us Your Formicivores (Anteaters, pangolins, armadillos, echidnas, etc.)   Mon Apr 01, 2013 2:14 am

Some creatures achieved extreme but somewhat similar shapes due their similar diets.
Formicivores are a iconic example. specialization to eat ants and termites gave them some similar characteristics even if they are not closely related.
Among them: long tongues, narrow snouts, strong forelegs with huge claws, etc.
Known examples are giant anteaters and tamanduas, armadillos, pangolins, aardvarks, echidnas, etc.
They are not often made in toy shape but they are incredibly exotic and beautiful.
Below some of my formicivores. Very Happy

Giant anteater by Harriet - this figure was a surprise gift from Harriet, a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] :flower:She kindly made and sent it to me as soon as she knew giant anteaters are my favorite animals. cheers Very Happy

Schleich giant anteater was also a gift from Suebeedo, in a early stage on my collecting hobby when a retired Schleich was an impossible task to me. To tell how nice Sue is, she also sent some figures to my niece and a box full of farm animals to a young member of STS that is not participating anymore. Sad

Safari anteater with baby, a magnificent figure, is a [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] monkey - just the best mass produced replica of this species I know. Not even Lineol or otehr brand did it better in my opinion. .cheers:

New Ray and Veb Plaho giant anteaters

Safari aardvark is the only representative among major brands. That African creature has a lot of character and the brand made a good work. I've got it from Kristie and I only have to feel lucky of it once it is hard to find now. flower

Schleich armadillo and S&N echidna.
Here an example of an American and an Australian formicivores. The nine-banded armadillo is generally an insectivore although ants and termites are their prefered food. Echidnas are apparently very different from all other previous species but they also are great diggers with large claws, long and sticky tongues and have tubular snouts

I still miss a pangolin, though, these are not all my formicivores. Now it is time to see yours. bounce bounce bounce

Andreas is right! With all these armadillos it can only be an army. Maybe an American army of armadillos, with general anteater and the Australian soldier is only to make it looks like an United Nations army. Laughing Very beautiful! Those Colorata are fantastic and the standing armadillo is a great idea. Very Happy

A really special group of animals, I don't have a single Incredible Creature from Safari, but, if I ever get some of them, my first choices will be pangolin and armadillo. Very Happy
