What is the material of the biwako grebes?

They're made of resin I believe.

Who makes that Grebe in reply #5? It looks Colorata stylish :). Maybe Epoch?

Thank you :) that figurine is from a Kaiyodo Birdtales serie (Birds Nest collection)  :)

Sbell, what is the total length of the K&M blue-spotted salamander?
I am surprised that these salamanders are still marketed after some 19 years.

The blue-spotted (and orange--same mold) are 16 cm long as is (they don't stretch easily). The red is 26cm.

I was surprised when I realized what I had--I assumed that they were more current, or I would have at least bought the 3rd small one!

Sean, you said the Georgia Aquarium had 4 figures? You mean 4 of interest to you or 4 total? They used to have a ton of Safari and K&M. Both that aquarium and their zoo are fantastic! Did you also hit up the Fernbank Natural History museum? It's nice, too!

They have a ton of K&M? Sounds interesting, a lot of collectors search for that. They have a online shop?

I didn't get to the museum. Time didn't allow. They had 3 each of the small and medium salamanders, plus a few lizards.

But mostly Schleich and Safari.

I don't think they have a comprehensive online store. If they have one at all.

Okay, I'm back from Atlanta! The Zoo and the Aquarium are fantastic. As far as toy animals go it was...not great. The Aquarium had 4 figures--two Safari (Moray eel and hanmerhead shark) and two mystery ones--knock offs of Safari Great White and Whale shark (I didn't pick up any). The zoo wasn't too bad, mostly Safari and some Schleich.

And K&M salamanders!



There were 3 of each size (the Red is a 'medium, the red eft/orange and blue-spotted are 'small')

They are marked K&M INT 1999. So they might actually be from that era! We didn't pick up the others because...they are all the same mold, and I didn't notice the details until we'd left. The other two mediums were fire and green marbled salamanders; the other small was a dark brown wtih a red longitudinal stripe down the back (like a Yonahlosee). My son picked up the red and orange because of course he did. I grabbed the blue-spotted because I'd never seen a toy of one.

They came with info tags wtih photos of their intended species and everything! And even an ID#!

The Red is 20757
The Red Eft (referred to as 'orange salamander' on the tag) is 20762
The Blue-spotted is 20761

As for the trip--it was amazing. I will get photos up, but it will take a while to sort them out!
