Thank you!

Albeit similar to axolotl, Mudpuppies are different species so no thanks. I can only hope that a nice figure comes out soon.

True. Mudpuppies are my favorite amphibian, and I have a tattoo of one on my ribs. I'm actually surprised there aren't more axolotl figures out there with how popular they are in the pet trade. The Japanese especially seem to love them, but there aren't even a great abundance of Japanese figures of axolotls.

The white, green and black/spotted ones (seem like a set) look like true axolotl, I was referring to these.

Managed to find a Kaiyodo on eBay, but it does not compare to your white and green ones.  :(

Stargatedalek is right, they are mudpuppies. The spotted one is from the Tennessee Aquarium Collection. Here is a nice walk-around of it:

The other two are usually just called "Safari mudpuppies" and are both available on eBay right now. I got the spotted from an aquarium in Duluth, MN, the green from a small, third-party website and the glow in the dark from a zoo in Chicago, IL.

Absolutely fantastic collection! Where did you get the Axolotl? I've been looking for one and found nothing.

Thank you :)

In my neotenic collection there is only one true axolotl, the tiny green one in the middle. It's a Kaiyodo figure; I think they also made it in albinotic colors. Got it off eBay a number of years ago. Were you referring to a different one?

I'll wait a month or two before I start deleting any dead image links and I'll let everyone know here when the purge begins.

I'll be deleting my PB account once I "rescue" the images. They need to lose some accounts over this so they can't brag about having "100 million members" anymore.

That was a Marx Kronosaurus? No offense but i thought it was a cheap chinasaur from the 90's ;D

Nope. Circa 1955, produced in a factory in Moundsville, WV.

Welcome! Same here, I'm just a snapping turtle here rather than a Marx Kronosaurus.

It even has detailed wings under the carapace? Kaiyodo, you never cease to amaze me.

Yes, as said above, unplug appliances when you're not actively using them. A lot of people don't know that they still continue to suck electricity even when nothing's happening with them. I try really hard to remember to unplug my phone charger from the wall when the phone's done charging. It's the little things that make a big difference over time - for the planet and your pocketbook!

Books, film, and other media / Re: Kong: Skull Island
« on: May 24, 2017, 06:20:39 AM »
Just my two cents... I didn't like it even as much as the 2005 one simply because the fauna biodiversity of the island was pretty minimal. They were more focused on playing to every Vietnam War trope.

It says in the article it's been "spotted at sea a few dozen times."

What about a six million gallon pool?
even 10 million gal. pool.  ;)

i know youre just joking but cetaceans need unlimited space to travel/roam

Well, I was actually being literal. The Atlanta aquarium has 10 million gallons of tanks, 6 million of which is just for the whale shark. But I understand your argument and think it has validity.
