Hi,
I wanted to buy some safari animals but I can't decide which animals...
So I was wondering: What are, according to you, the 'must haves' of safari ltd.

Wow, I love the coloring of the mandarin!
The white wolf is one of the few I allready have and I hope I can find her family. The lesser kudu and the Raindeer are now also in my whish list!

Some of my absolute favorites (most of which have already been mentioned) are:

American Badger, Indian Rhinoceros, Puma, Howling Grey Wolf, Black Bear, Reindeer, American Bison, White Rhinoceros (the more recent version), Platypus, Hippopotamus, Capybara, White Wolf (which you already have), Lesser Kudu, Pronghorn Buck, Arabian Oryx. If it's your thing, I like the Bantam Hen too.

Harriet's picture of the Badger is seriously awesome. Here are some pictures of some of the others.

Is there a family that goes along with the White Wolf? I didn't realize that.

Not really, I just meant the other wolves, the grey howling one and the cub.

Though it would be fun to have a repaint job on them.

Scott, I love the black bear and platypus too, they're gorgeous! cheers the hippo is interesting, I've never really given her much thought but seeing your photo has made me think otherwise.

That would be really interesting, Anne-Joke! It's a good idea.

I really love the grey wolf (howling). That and the White Wolf are excellent.

Harriet, I probably never would have bought the hippo had I not been in a store and seen it in person. I was surprised at how much I liked it. It has a really nice texture. (and the calf is cute too.)

One thing I love about the platypus is that the sculpting really gives the animal a sense of weight. It looks like a heavy sack resting on the ground (a sack of guts and muscle and bones, that is). It looks very alive.

Some really nice replicas here. I have the reindeer too and would recommend it highly. The mandarin duck looks great.

I can't recommend much else because I dont have much Safari but I like my turtles a lot - green sea and loggerhead.

I agree about the platypus, it's beautifully sculpted and the paintwork is nice too.

I'll have to think about the hippo then, I want to get the Mojo one which is maybe a better match colour wise to the Papo hippo.
