AcroSauroTaurus, you showed a Proganochelid.
When you get the time, please post a close up that shows if the neck and tail have spikes.
As help to search for this figure, is it part of a set? Thanks.

It has some small spikes on the tail, and the feet look more tortoise-like, so I assumed it was some sort of primitive chelonid. And I just picked it out in a toy box at the doctor's office when I was younger, so I don't know its origins.

I have a few of them, and sorry to burst your collective bubble but I'm fairly certain they're generic snapping turtles, they came with other modern turtles.

Doesn't really look like a Snapping Turtle, has the wrong head, hands, and feet. Which is why I thought it was a Proganochelid. Perhaps a young individual that doesn't have fully formed spikes yet?

In more detailed response to brontodocus here to keep the threads on-point.
http://animaltoyforum.com/index.php?topic=1972.0

I ran the scale and the hatchlings are roughly 1:4.5, if not slightly larger. The largest green sea turtle adult had a carapace length of 153cm, which makes this one in about 1:9 for a hypermature adult, closer to 1:7 for an average adult.

It would be easier to tell if her hands were more visible, but both of them next to a 1:9 scale human (Uzuki is 159cm tall [thank you [email protected] wiki for your frighteningly accurate measurements]) really shows how large the eggs really are relative to the adult.

Colorata Sea Turtles, Endangered Species

Two volumes, each packed in a plastic box, each with 4 species of adults and matching hatchlings (2005).

Volume I

Ventral of adults is marked with the common name and a code using volume # - item # followed by A. Adults fit on a base. Size is slightly larger than Kaiyodo or Yujin.


Upper row (l to r): I - 1A Leatherback, I - 3A Hawksbill
Lower row (l to r): I - 4A Kemp's ridley, I - 2A Green

Ventral of hatchlings has a similar code to the adults, with B for hatchling; name not marked. No base for hatchlings. Length is generally less than 1.5 in. or 3.5 cm.

I - 1B Leatherback, Dermochelys coriacea
I - 2B Green, Chelonia mydas
I - 3B Hawksbill, Eretmochelys imbricata
I - 4B Kemp's ridley, Lepidochelys kempii

Volume II


Upper row (l to r): II - 6A Galapagos (previously Black), II - 5A Loggerhead
Lower row (l to r): II -7A Flatback, II -8A Olive ridley


II - 5B Loggerhead, Carettta caretta
II - 6B Galapagos green turtle (previously Black sea turtle), Chelonia agassizii
II - 7B Flatback, Nator depressus
II - 8B Olive ridley, Lepidochelys olivacea


Colorata also sold a box of the adult sea turtles without the hatchlings. See reply #16 by postsaurischian on this thread.

Edit: Chelonia agassizii is listed as a full species by Wikipedia, but the scientific community identifies the Galapagos sea turtles and all other populations of green sea turtles by the name Chelonia mydas. http://www.seaturtle.org/mtn/archives/mtn72/mtn72p2b.shtml

Yes, sauroid, these sets are rare. I bought mine through Brett, member brettnj. I recommend that you send him a message to put in a request. Good luck.  :)
