Congratulations for your new bonnethead, Valérie. Very Happy
Our German tapir is impugnable and surely two bonnets are needed once one may get dirty. Wink Laughing
This hsark has a huge advantage. Actually, it is the only hammerhead that doesn't look like a hammer. Once these are very popular due to its uncommon hammer shaped head, the other 3 species are often favoured. I have the impression that most do not care really with the exact species once it is easy to find these toys just named hammerhead shark and often, mixing some features from different species. I like bonnetheads, those are the ones I have seen in the Oceanário, the big Lisbon Aquarium. ;D

Yes. They found different DNA and now it could be that there are more than 2 species

FINALLY!!!! My Larami Greenland Shark!!!! It is now in the Larami Sharks page.

However, I cannot find "Greenland Shark" species in the Taxonomic pages of Toy Animal Info. Doesn't a page exist for Greenland Shark on TAI?

It wasn't created yet. Your greenland shark, is the first of the species to be entered on TAI. Now you can find the species page [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Wink
Many congratulations for getting such an interesting figure and good luck with the remaining ones. Very Happy

The only other is a Neko Works figure...for whatever reason, they aren't done very often.

The Larami Greenland Shark IS FROM THE SET. When I saw the entire set of Larami Sharks back in winter 1997, they were divided in three boxes, containing four sharks each: one Very large shark with mouth open and painted red (Great White, Tiger and Greenland), three large ones with mouth drawn with saw teeth (Scallopped Hammerhead, Bull and Sand Tiger), three small with mouth drawn with saw teeth (Blacktip, Sandbar and another one) and three solid tiny-tiny sharks (Horn, Bonnethead and a striped one I forgot the name of). The Larami Greenland Shark not only is in scale with all the other sharks of the series, but also has its mouth open and painted red, like the two other giant ones.

Maybe the set you bought was simply incomplete. Didn't you say you had bought your sharks on EBay from an individual seller? Not only that, but I remember you once thought the set included only eight sharks. You know, the Larami Sharks set included twelve animals, just like the Whales set. I saw them in Toys'R'Us when I bought my whales, back in January 1997, when I was still a student at the university. And I went back to the store many times after my buy, just to look at the sharks (I didn't have enough money to buy both sets). And each of the boxes included a poster where all the species of the set were described. So, if your sharks set was complete, you would have also have at least a copy of that poster. All of this makes me think the set you have bought a few years back simply was incomplete.

Yes, that could be. So i was wrong. Do you know then the other 4 shark species?

I have TEN Larami Sharks up to now. So, there are only two more to go. I have no remembrance what-so-ever of one of them (I only know that it is small and hollow), but I think I remember that the remaining tiny solid one (the one like the Bonnethead and the Horn) was yellowish with dark stripes, a little like a tiger or a zebra. Maybe a Zebra Bullhead Shark. But it was in 1997 and my memory may fail me...

When I was looking at the Larami Sharks boxes in the store back in 1997, I didn't know yet of the existence of the Greenland Shark. Although, I do remember that one of the largest ones did not look like the two other ones (Great White and Tiger): its flippers were smaller and its tail looked more like a reptile's tail with a fin than a regular shark's tail. And the picture of the poster on the back of the box was too small for me to read the names of the species. So, during many years, I was wondering what species that weird-looking shark toy represented: a Basking Shark? A Pacific Sleeper Shark? And so on. I learned about the existence of the Greenland shark in 2006, but my remembrance of the Larami Sharks set was not clear enough for me to say:"A-Ha! The weird-looking shark in that set was this one!" It's only when I saw the Larami Greenland Shark on EBay that I finally realized that the large shark with the singular looks was a Greenland Shark.
