The Tennessee Aquarium Collection is such a wonderful series :D. It's a shame I don't have any of them at the moment!
Next to the Fire Salamander this is my favourite one.

TTAC amphibians are amazing. I never have seen figures of newts and salamanders with these details, thanks for sharing again friend  ^-^!

Looks prehistoric - it's the sail-like crest ;)
I agree, like something out of the Silurian or Carboniferous. :)

I really hope the rest of this series gets reissued alongside the mudpuppy some day, even if they're all glow in the dark.

Same here! :) Maybe Safari Ltd should really think about releasing them unpainted if the molds are still good.

I assume they are, since they've released two of them in glow in the dark form. Why the most recognizable of them sans the mudpuppy haven't been I can't fathom.

On the other hand it's strange that only two of the TAC salamanders were released as part of the Translucents series - Mudpuppy and Yonahlossee Salamander - and the same two are now sold as glow-in-the-dark figures. But it seems none of the other sculpts have ever been released again. :-\

Quite foreboding indeed, hopefully they still have those molds. :'(
