To Tennessee Salamander Collection by Safari Ltd. belongs seven models. You can see them of course at TAI with great photos made by Christophe.
In my own collection I had so far only the Red Salamander. But recently I have found some more models.
Again a Red Salamander but also the, the Great Crested newt and the Fire Salamander.
So now I have three models from this wonderful series and also hope to find the rest sometime. sunny  bounce

That's a fantastic presentation, Yvette! Thanks for refreshing this subject on forum. This is one of these remarkable series from this hobby. I wished more Aquaria started this kind of cooperations with companies to release other real sized figures like these. ... and thanks to you, someone in Portugal will really enjoy its first salamander! Laughing
An interesting point, your first 3 salamanders are the exact same 3 as Christophe acquired before completing is collection. On the other hand, the mudpupy, the only released in 1997, is the hardest of them. As I told you personally, the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] from the Great Smoky Mountains Association is an excellent addition to this series.
The moulds of the yonahlossee salamander and mudpuppy were used also as translucents, the former as green and red and the latter as gold. The first was still used as glow-in-the-dark.
About the red-cheeked salamander it remains still a mistery for me, it seems the figure is marked 2004 but I think the cooperation with the GSM Associations was much later than that. Another curious fact is that I've never heard about salamander figures in Safari's Incredible Creatures line. So, if anyone have more information, i'd appreciate it. Very Happy

Amazing figures. I have never seen these before, which is a shame. Put one on a piece of moss and it will be difficult to tell if it is a figure or a real one.

They remind me of the Playvisions Salamanders set... many of the species represented by both companies are the same.

I have (had?) both versions of the marbled salamander--they are miles apart in quality and design. The Safari ones look like real animals. The PV ones have the same slightly-stylized appearance that many PV figures have.
