here are 2 very lucky ebay finds. both are very elusive models released in the 1990's. first is the creepy but realistic giant flea. its one of the hardest to find models in the Smithsonian collection and I believe it was only available for one year.

and here is a new in box complete set of all seven Rainforest frogs from the Baltimore Aquarium series by Safari. they are life size frogs and very comparable to the well known Tennessee Aquarium Salamanders. this is a real treasure to me. Sadly most of the frogs are not marked with their name so I am unsure of many of their species.

I hope you will enjoy them. Very Happy

Congratulations Lance! Those are figures of museum quality from two different but of high intererst collections. Very Happy
Although theorically I don't collect them, I am sure I wouldn't mind to have them, mainly lifelsized frogs, I love figures in 1:1 scale. Very Happy
Aren't frogs marked in their box? It seems they are identifyed on catalogues. study

Kudos on the frogs, but I'm not sure if saying so about the model of a blood-sucker is the appropriate thing to do. I mean, "Yay, congrats on the huge flea that recently invaded your house!" just sounds... mildly malicious...
