Olm (Safari Ltd. – Cave Dwellers Toob)
« on: January 28, 2014, 12:20:54 AM »
We welcome the issue of a species that is new to the collector of salamander replicas.
The highly anticipated olm is part of a toob of 8 troglobites.


Olm, Proteus anguinus, total length 3.5 inches or 9 cm.









Our cries were heard too late to correct the number of toes on each hind foot from 3 to 2.
Update: The Olm after toe amputation and repainting can be seen in Customised figures.




Group shot: Eel, Olm, Millipede, Crayfish, Crab, Spider, Catfish, Scorpion

Available on eBay

Do they really just list it as an 'eel' in the set? From what I had been told, it's supposed to be a synbranchid, which is a far more unusual (probably a first time) figure. Doesn't look like any anguilliforme I know of.

Yes, sbell, the figure is indeed marked “Eel.”

I like the new figure and the toob in general. I think that it is a good point of Safari  ^-^.
