Here are some fishes I have found; they are sold here in 18-packs that seem to combine parts of several of the sets shown on the Italian sites. I believe that this photo shows (left to right; top to bottom):

sailfish
red lionfish?
orange-lined triggerfish
lagoon/Picasso triggerfish
black piranha
lobetoothed piranha
red-bellied piranha
black bullhead
red-tailed catfish
spotted moray
turkey moray
wolf eel
Atlantic white-spotted octopus (I think)
rabbitfish
marbled electric ray
common torpedo ray
whale shark
leopard shark
great white shark
black-tipped reef shark
loggerhead turtle?
some tortoise or terrapin, not sure which.
narwhal
orca
unspecified dolphin
humpback whale
walrus
platypus

I also turned up 8 different prehistoric animals, which we've tried to identify on the Dinosaur Toy Forum, though these do not come with the handy identification sheets that have been seen in the European releases.

That is interesting, especially the right side. I found today a website and it looks that the new Breyer wildlife serie could be the same like a few figurines from the right side.

I'm not familiar with the Breyer figures! These are all quite rubbery, are the Breyers similar?

I have seen that site--and somewhere around here, I have begged someone to find me the 3 fish from the Jungle set! There are 2 snakeheads and a Mekong catfish...they are on Ebay.it, but the the postage to Canada is 10 times the item price!

So if someone can help out...I might have a few tradeworthy things around here! Wink Or I can just pay... Laughing

Jungle set?

Yes, this one:

http://catturalitutti.deagostinipassion.it/maxxi-jungle.php

I also just discovered today that the Orca set has a fish that I need. The completely inappropriate-for-an-Orca set Vampire fish

http://catturalitutti.deagostinipassion.it/maxxiorke.php

From what I can find online it is..not a great representation. But I still want it!

I also received a bunch of them from Halichoeres today, which is awesome! They are bigger than I expected! And squishy!

Now that I am looking at these animals more closely, I have to ask--while the DeAgostini site lists names for the fish, most of which are...close...that wolf eel looks nothing like any wolf eel I've seen.

It seems more conger or snake eel to me. Is there a chance that I'm missing something in the translation of 'wolf eel' from "anguilla lupo'? It seems to translate to Anarrhichthys ocellatus but the colour, pattern and shape seem way off.

Apparently juveniles can be brighter and more striped, but not like that.

Maybe I'm being picky, but it seems like this fish should be something else (most of the rest that I have are close, if a little off--for example, the 'monstrous chimaera' is known in English as the Rabbit Fish!) but I don't 100% know what.

And a follow up--because these series continue to be confusing.

I finally tracked down the source of the prehistoric animals. They are not labelled as being from DeAgostini originally. Instead, they come from Diramix (another Italian company).

http://www.diramix.com/antichi-abissi/



And yet, they feel and look just like the DeAgostini. It must be all the same manufacturer.

And lookeing around on the site...somebody must help me out with this set!

Do you know if they have the same style and material?

Judging by the only one I have--the Dunkleosteus (which, for whatever reason, Italy reaslly wants to always call Dinichthys)--the rubber is the same, and the overall feel and design is the same. Halichoeres has a few others, so it might be easier for him to judge. The ones he got, on Amazon, appear to have been re-used to create a random mix of several sets (Orke, Piranha, the Diramix Antichi Abissi, Sharks...maybe a couple others!)

I wouldn't argue with that--but it's hard enough to get gars or paddlefish.

And there won't be a tigerfish figure until at least April (oooohhhh....what do I know!? Shocked Cool )

Thanks for the new info, SBell. The ones I have are a mix of figures from both DeAgostini and Diramix. The prehistoric ones are definitely from the Diramix "Epic Animal Antichi Abissi" set, but the extant ones are definitely pulled from both.

As for Dinichthys, I found an unboxing (unbagging) video on YouTube, and a shot of the card included with the Italian releases says that "Dinichthys is often confused with Dunkleosteus." Which is true because most Dinichthys reconstructions are based on Dunkleosteus remains. According to Carr & Havlin 2010 (Z. Linn. Soc. 159: 195), Dinichthys is a valid and distinct, if fragmentary, genus. Nevertheless, the small version of the Dinichthys in this set doesn't even resemble an arthrodire. The large version is better. It at least has the thoracic armor.

Still leaving the 'wolf eel' as is though? Because whatever it might be, as we've discussed, it surely is no wolf eel that I've ever come across.

Good point, it looks more like a conger or a snake eel. I was just going with the manufacturer ID.

The big problem--the closest it has in pattern is the long-finned conger eel, as you suggested.

But the long distance between the head and start of the dorsal fin is more reminiscent of the anguillids (although I could not find any species with any striped/barred patterns at all).
