Vault Tales 207 FigureFrenzy Hyena, Dodo, Cynognathus, African wild dog, Arsinoitherium

So here’s a random assortment of mostly mammals (and adjacent) figures. And one extinct bird, just to mix it up. Most of them are pretty good too! Schleich Spotted hyena (2015 release) Let’s start with a figure that represents one of my favorite animals (mammal edition), a Spotted hyena which, yes, I’ve covered a fewContinue reading “Vault Tales 207 FigureFrenzy Hyena, Dodo, Cynognathus, African wild dog, Arsinoitherium”

Vault tales 112 – Clades – Pliosaurs
