Beatrice [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], have sent these pictures to me once she didn't know where to put them at Toy Animal Wiki. She suspects these are K&M Minis or even from K&M Rubber Balls or sold as Club Earth. They're known from Wing Mau catalogue.
Do you have any more informations about these figures and could you also help me with species?
Later I will also show some spiders... thanks!

No clue, but now I want them XD
They could be mini's indeed, they have the style.
Are they very hard plastic, or a bit movable (rubbery?).
Bouncing balls have very hard plastic animals, as where the minis are more bendable.
(not much, but more than the hard small bouncing ball animals)

After re reading this, I don't even know my own theory is right XD

Number 3 could be a white beaked dolphin.

They are lovely, - but don't they look a bit like home-painted models ? Shocked

Your guess seems good Andreas, thanks! Very Happy
Susanne, I have no idea, I only know that they are much smaller than what we see here and the painting effect could result quite different.

lol! Toy animal archaeology is a hard hobby. I have no idea how they feel once they're in Beatrice's hands. Maybe she posts here someday. Very Happy

They are lovely! cheers The surely remind me of the K&M Mini figurines, but I haven't seen them before.

The paintjob does look a bit wobbly, but the paintjob on the 'authentic' K&M Minis does't look much better. For example, their Ichthyosaurus:

They look pretty interesting. As for species, I think theyre Bottlenose, Atlantic white-sided and White-beaked dolphin respectively. Not sure about the last one. Perhaps Tursiops aduncus?
