This guy is not easy to find, and certainly not in good condition.
I think he inspires little boys to play rough Wink

So I am quite pleased to have found these two, one of them even among some old "junk" that one of my Danish friends had .

And, - YESSS ! They are variations cheers Laughing Laughing

I was fortunate to get this picture as the sun peaked out this afternoon. sunny

Thankyou, Harriet and Andreas Very Happy flower

Yes, Harriet, they surely look like wolves, - I think that generally may be one of the problems with making some of the more recently extinct mammals, - many of them look like recent ones, except for the size.
So it would take a Harriet or Ana or Joan to make the so accurate that they are easy to recognize Wink

Yes, you are right, that Bullyland often have made some very-far-from-accurate models Rolling Eyes

But in this case we must be fair and say that we really don`t know what they looked like, as they became extinct app 10.000 years ago. Crying or Very sad
They weren`t even related to the present day`s wolves , -they are more related to the coyote study

Well, this just underlines what I wrote, - it can be quite difficult to make models of extinct mammals Laughing Laughing

Thankyou, guys sunny
I hope you find him, Mihnea. But chances are he won`t get any cheaper scratch
However, luck is not impossible Very Happy Wink
