In fact theyr'e for sure coprines and not Dynastidae... the shape of pronotum is exactly those of Copris lunaris while the horn could be a match for Copris hispanus, and the shape of both and leg proportion matches with both, but not with Oryctes :-)

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...

Perhaps, but for Schleich collectors they are very hard to find and usually sought after.

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.

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).

Spinosaurus $20

Just bought half an hour ago the CollectA reticulated giraffe (http://www.collecta.biz/en/collections/wild-life/88534). It's a nice piece, very accurate and I like it over any other brands giraffes. Tough it's a bit disgusting to put it side by side with my giant pangolin (Schleich), the pangolin looks like "too giant" then... The first thing I did at home is add more spots in the lower flanks/belly and lower part of the legs, for make it more accurate.
