After the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], we are now grouping a very interesting series of reptiles and amphibians. Figures are marked 1995 and only four are known until now.
Please, if anyone have more info about this series, just share here!

p.s.: About the charming toad, does anyone know the species? Is it a cane toad? scratch

The toad picture is not displaying.

Widukind recently posted a melagassy giant chameleon as well (not sure it's from the same year or not).

New Ray continues to amaze me with their diversity and figures. Did these just kind of fly under the radar for years?

Thanks for your observations. Toad pic is fixed now and chameleon is marked 1995, likely from this series too as you pointed. cheers First post was updated accordingly.
Yes, these figures are often illusive or we see them so randomly that we almost forgot. The chameleon is a good example, I've seen it and when building the series page, I've lost it. That's one of the reasons why it is good to group them on TAI or in a thread. It turn collecting life easier. Very Happy

A wonderful serie and i think there are any more, like the bird serie.

The chameleon found the way from France to Germany, it is only the same :)

I have to add that the lizards and the toad have no species name on it. Just marked New Ray 1995 (and "made in China" of course) - all rather tiny, not big as on the birds (the marking, not the figures themselves which are bigger than the birds).

So is the Chameleon marked with species? (because it is named precisely on TAI, not only "Chameleon")

I just now discovered these topics, with some figures I've never seen before! The iguana and horned lizard have a special charm, the chameleon is exquisite, and the toad is in an interesting defensive pose- all special pieces for a collection. The older New-Ray animals I remember (the zoo/wildlife types) came in a plastic, cardboard-backed hanger, two to a set, with a piece of accessory scenery. I wonder if these others came in sets of two as well?

I'm not good enough with my amphibian IDs, but I've been around cane toads, and that's no Cane toad.

It looks familiar, but I can't quite figure out what it is!

I wouldn't be surprised if the toad remains unidentifiable to a specific species, with those colors. Maybe the common toad is the most likely reference for that pose, and the spots, disregarding the super-saturated color (the horned lizard and iguana are really bright, too).

The globular shape is definitely reminiscent of a particular type of toad. Just not sure which.

Wait--spadefoot toads! They kind of have that shape! As just an example, not sure if that is an accurate guess.

I was thinking it was just puffed up, like this: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

But you're right about spadefoot toads fitting the shape, too... scratch

an inflated common toad makes the most sense. I grew up with spadefoots in the deserts of central/southern AZ, and it doesn't strike me for a spadefoot.

Not marked with specie name :)

Of course this chameleon is a chameleon, but it looks like a Malagasy giant chameleon, at least more than any other species.

Yes it lets me think about an odd coloured common toad.

I am so glad you are trying to find out a good species match for this beautiful New-Ray figure. Of course cane toad is a bad guess once it was my guess. Laughing It is a fact that New-Ray use vibrant colors and that their figures are found in several color variants, though, also toads have several morphs and there are, at least, 3 toad species known as common toads. The Asian, European and American. I think we agree all it is a true toad made of plastic. Laughing
