This is why I still tend to prefer Safari ltd to Schleich or Papo. Schleich were at the top when they made all their stuff in Germany and Portugal; but when the USAmericans bought them, Schleich unfortunately turned into yet another "Made in China" farmlife manufacturer. That is all U.S. Americans can do, it seems to me. And Papo, despite their detailed looks, don't exactly bring much new to my eyes. Safari ltd is also a "Made in China" manufacturer, but at least, they tend to take more risks releasing obscure species: white-lipped snail, kaprosuchus, nigersaurus, doedicurus, shark ray, miragaia, horseshoe crab, sally lightfoot crab, leafy seadragon, hatchet fish, hyacinth macaw... and so on. So, to me, if I ask for obscure creatures to be made, my hopes are on Safari ltd, who has the courage to bring unknown species into their catalogs. Or Bullyland, who has the courage to make most of their toys in Germany. See what I mean? THE COURAGE TO GO AGAINST THE TIDE.
