Wow, what an impressive PV collection, dinocat62! :o 8) I've never seen the PV beetles before. And they even made Jumnos ruckeri? I had them in culture some 13 years or so ago. Colours don't match exactly but the four yellow spots are there. :D

These are lovely models. Not sure why hyenas are classified as canids, though. Hyenas (although they superficially look very wolf like) are NOT canines, nor are they related to them at all, and are a separate group all by themselves. Was that a mistake on the manufacturer's part?

PV salamanders

the bottom 3 on the right are:

Spotted Salamander
Long-tailed Salamander
Eastern Long-tailed Salamander

The rest are Safari





Dinocat62, you do our Forum a great service by posting your Play Visions photos.  I will revisit these many times.  I would like to know your secret for finding so many rare animals.  One typo: the Eastern long-tailed salamander should read E. long-toed salamander.

No, it wouldn't have been a mistake--PV just wanted to include a hyena, so they did. The sets were rarely as much about taxonomy as just being cool! I didn't complain, it was my first striped hyena figure (I of course have several now).

I am guessing that the real problem is that there aren't enough hyenas to make their own set; but the cat set was full enough; and the civets and mongooses (not to speak of some of the 'creative' paint choices in that set) don't look similar enough that the set would look right. So the hyena stuck with the dogs.

But hey, if David Attenborough can refer to hyenas as 'canids' in Life of Mammals, it would seem that their classification is more mysterious than we would expect.

That's really surprising that Attenborough would make such a novice mistake :/

Yes, most of the reptiles and amphibians, and the bigger Palorchestes and Uintatherium.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. I've collected these since the late 80's in stores and museum shops all over the US. Most could be had for 25 cents, at most $1. Now I buy everything online!
