Laughing I've seen that news at CNN and the first thing I thought was - if it exists, surely Andreas found it first. Laughing
These sharks have very similar patterns and they change with age and it is not easy to identify at all. Obviously yours was not based on these ones but you can use it for any of these species. It just have to match the colours once the mould is the same and doesn't reflect any morphological differences.

And it is too sad that you can not find all informations for a good identify.

I am sure these K&M bamboo sharks are painted according with exact species and their identification should be based on species more popular in aquaria or pet trade. They are also 1993 released figures so, many recently discovered species are out of the battle.
For bamboo sharks, most common are the brown-banded, epaulette's and white-spotted that is an acceptable candidat for your newer acquisition, I guess. As I told, the mould mixes features that don't match an exact species not even an exact genus, we can find features of several carpet sharks mixed. They are marked bamboo shark, aren't they?
Sad is that Safari Ltd, always very precise identifying their figures, also released a bamboo shark without specifying it.

I think you are right, Roger.  The K&M Bamboo Sharks look like a juvenile brown-banded, and possibly the solid brown figure is either an Arabian Carpetshark or an adult Brown-banded Bamboo Shark; and I agree with your assessment that the pale figure very likely could be a White-spotted Bamboo Shark, as they can be pretty pale in color.  The Safari figure definitely represents a juvenile Brown-banded Bamboo Shark.  I would actually like to see them re-release the same sculpt with different paint jobs representing adults and other species.

Today i got any rubber fishes by K&M by a trade. Now i have 3 different colour variations by lionsfishes, bamboo sbarks, angelfishes and anemone fishes. But only one color of a (sting) ray and a parrotfish. So i am relly sure that there 2 more colour variations of each. And i am sure it is a water serie of these rubber figures.
