Hey Willy, nice to see you're still alive!
Do you really think this is a Stenella frontalis? Spots,..indeed. But proportions etc?
but there's a lack of alternatives,...

They made at least four different dolphins, all clearly from the same mold.

That is really very interesting! As you allowed previously the use of your pictures at Toy Animal Wiki, I entered these also, however, if you don't agree, I can always remove them. They are introduced as common bottlenose dolphin, short-beaked common dolphin and clymene dolphin. Maybe the last one should be introduced as a spinner dolphin as you also pointed but I am not sure which is the best match. Figures are based in a single mould and we cannot determine their species based on morphology. Whatever is it a spinner or a clymene, it is the first representing these species at the wiki. Very Happy

I've also seen a gray version of the seal on ebay.

I've added also these seals and the penguin to the wiki. Is there any kind of identification known to the species? How do you know it is an Humboldt and not an African penguin? Very Happy

There's no species identification on the figures, but only Humboldts have that much pink skin around the beak.
