Thank you very much, that's very useful. It seems that TIMPO didn't use species names for their plastic zoo animal series and that they come from the Plastic Warrior.

Firstly, the guy who wrote this Timpo guide, Barney Brown, also wrote the Britains Zoo book and this had great acclaim here!

For clarification I searched the internet for images of trade boxes and located the following:

Timpo 6016 Monkey on tree - clearly stated on a Timpo trade box:

https://www.figurenschnapp.de/en/timpo-toys-12-monkeys-on-tree-ref.-no.-6016-in-great-old-box

Timpo 6020 Baboon - again clearly stated on a Timpo trade box:

https://www.figurenschnapp.de/en/timpo-toys-12-monkeys-playing-with-ball-ref.-no.-6020

Link caption for 6020 incorrect - see the actual image!

This auction house also label 6020 as a Baboon:

https://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/auction-catalogues/special-auction-services/catalogue-id-2715245/lot-4455881

Another image of 6020 trade box clearly stating Baboon - this is from the book author's sales website:

http://www.heraldtoysandmodels.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php?&products_id=189&osCsid=f6ce9f10ad50fa455db614c30ceef438

Hopefully, the above clears this up and provides the evidence needed that in the case of 6016 and 6020 the book is accurate in its description regarding Timpo's naming of animals.

Oh yes they did - check the trade boxes.

I have a few Timpo catalogs and the only official identification I could find is for Hollowcast lead animals. The Ibex is indeed called Mountain goat (but it is different from the plastic one), on the other hand the two monkeys are called monkey, no baboon... And no Orangutan either

Timpo Zoo Series list - Page 2 Timpo-Toys-catalogi-017

Please note MZ4010 in this catalogue is the metal version of the plastic 6016 - both called Monkey on tree.

Also worth mentioning is the plastic 6006 Black panther is derived from the metal MZ4007 Lioness and MZ4008 Tiger illustrated and named in this catalogue as such. Hmm Lioness and Tiger same mould! But OK we can just paint them different colours no one will know.  Timpo Zoo Series list - Page 2 1f600
