Bullyland Iguana

Quite satisfying, afterall.

Don't have a clue about the species, someone can help me? Tx.



Must be the common green iguana, Iguana iguana.

Brontodocus, looks like the species identification thread is not sticky, maybe you still didn't implement the solution, or changed your mind about it?
No, I didn't change anything, I don't know what happened, maybe I didn't set the sticky properly? Should work now, though. :)

Edit: I just see the Bullyland Green Iguana, yes, it can only be Iguana iguana because of the enlarged scale below the ear. The other species within the genus, I. delicatissima, doesn't have this.

Nature Techni Colour identifies the oarfish in the Deep Sea Life set (Vol. 1) as Regalecus russelii. I wonder if it should have the common name of slender oarfish instead of giant oarfish. The scientific name of the giant oarfish is Regalecus glesne.

Here is a quote from Wikipedia:
”From December 2009 to March 2010, unusual numbers of the slender oarfish Regalecus russelii (竜宮の使い “Ryūgū-No-Tsukai”,) known in Japanese folklore as the Messenger from the Sea God's Palace, appeared in the waters and on the beaches of Japan, the appearance of which is said to portend earthquakes."

What do you think?

A resolution to the identification of the Nature Techni Colour oarfish is provided by the description that the length of the species represented by the figure is 11 meters, which is the size of the giant oarfish, much too large for the slender oarfish, Regalecus russelii, at 5.4 meters. I suggest that the scientific name of this oarfish should be corrected to Regalecus glesne instead of R. russelii to correspond to the common name of giant oarfish.

I agree with you - I think all signs point to the species being the giant oarfish rather than the slender.

Bradypus variegatus (I think)

anyone know what species of Wallaby this is..

It looks like a Bennett's Wallaby (Macropus rufogriseus) to me.

To my knowledge, there is only one species of reindeer (Rangifer tarandus), unless you meant the subspecies, in which case I don't know.

Hello, I am trying to sell some old Schleich models and am looking for the names of each.... My expertise is in dinosaurs so I don't really know my animal specials (except the bald eagle and hippos). Also, are these figures retired? Thanks.

Black rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis) to the left, Indian rhinoceros (Rhinoceros unicornis) to the right.

Common hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius) and calf

Tricky (well, unaccurate) one. By general colours it could be very well a White-tailed sea eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla), but with brown tail. The yellow bill rules out a golden eagle. Probably it was intended to be a golden eagle with unaccurate bill and head colour.

Golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos). It could pass by other Aquila species, but it's unlikely as they're lesser known.



This is the most interesting. It could represent a juvenile Crested caracara (Polyborus plancus), but I think it's unlikely (young-plumaged birds are not seen almost never in figurines), and anyway lacks some important features, such as the bald pinkish face, and the tail would be too short. I think it represent a kind of crested eagle, maybe black-and-rufous eagle (Oroaetus isidori), tough the colour is not fully accurate (whole head should be blackish).

The birds are a bald eagle, a golden eagle and an osprey. They are all retired figures from Schleich.

The whole series can be seen here: http://toyanimal.info//index.php?title=Schleich_Birds_of_Prey

Most of the birds in the set are very sought after and usually fetch a higher price. Other than the wings-spread bald eagle, mostly because it was around for so long.

Ah... The bald eagle looked like to have a tan head and brown tail... maybe is effect of lighting? Both should be white. The osprey is atonishingly bad done! Certainly don't reach the usual Schleich standards...
