On several occations I have admired Christophe's photoes of the thresher shark from the Monterey bay series.
It was a dark and stormy night, where I searched Ebay again, without much hope...and THERE it was bounce cheers 

And, - oh yes ! the seller also had the beautyful, spotted dolphin. Both at a very sensible price  Very Happy Very Happy

It seems I hit a lucky period.
At Toyanimal.info I saw that there is a retired, Asian Elefant that I had never seen...and BINGO ! Immediately I foun one, - even with tag elephant Very Happy 
This elephan was made from 2003 - 2007, which is not long for Safari.

Those are really Safari treasures. Not only because they're retired but mainly because they're nice. Although I don't have them, I find the bigeye thresher a fantastic figure and the spotted dolphin is very beautiful too. By the way, does someone know which exact species is the dolphin?
Ah, I am sure that some of the most dedicated collector of elephants doesn't know probably this one! elephant Congratulations! Very Happy

Congrats! I wish Safari would bring back the spotted dolphin. Perhaps it didn't sell well because it was in the same mold as their old bottlenose dolphin? scratch

You are probably right ! I have often wondered why some rare species, like the Ardwark,Smithsonians etc are retired after relatively few years Shocked 
Perhaps it is also because children tend to go for the animals that they know ? scratch
