I was hoping Papo would pick up CollectAs slack this year, no inverts sadly but I'm loving that Albatross and Rattlesnake. Any idea on an ID for the snake, seems quite distinctively bulky?

The sharks are also quite nice, though something about the paintwork on the blacktip seems off.

Why I'm done with the ATF, at least for now:

Nice diverse line up!  I'm really liking the rattlesnake, bat, lynx, albatross, and whale shark.

Any idea on an ID for the snake, seems quite distinctively bulky?

Patterning looks like a Western Diamondback Rattlesnake, but the body is a bit too short for any species.  The albatross looks like a Black-browed Albatross, nice change of pace from the usual Wandering and Royal.

My opinion on the only two models of this lineup I am interested in:

Golden Lion Tamarin: It looks a little slim or under-haired around the belly, but I might get it regardless.

Ruffed Lemur: Probably my favorite model of the lineup, despite them messing up a bit on the promo image. I'm especially glad they haven't made the usual Ring-tailed Lemur model.

Actually, I'm quite happy to see some more European Wildlife figures. :) The Sealife figures look good, too, and a Ruffed Lemur would be a completely new species for my collection.

Yes, I noticed that, too! :) Since Papo is European based, I wonder if the bat is possibly meant to represent the Greater Mouse-eared Bat, Myotis myotis (although the genus Myotis is a huge one and species are not always easy to tell from each other)?

That whale shark looks really nice - especially with the open mouth - but why are they replacing their old sperm whale with this much uglier one?

Does anyone know the measures of the Cheetah and the Lynx?
