Default Pachyrhinosaurus' Rainforest Collection

I was always collecting Safari LTD and Schleich animals. But, a few years ago, maybe seven or eight, I visited a restaraunt called the Rainforest Cafe. That inspired me to collect rainforest animals specifically. It also inspired me to grow exotic plants. Here is the collection that I built up. There are only Schleich, Safari LTD, and Rainforest Cafe collectables. I plan on buying a few CollectA elephants, though, and a few more Papo animals.
The only brand information I have for the RFC items is that the large snake is AAA.
Also, if you want to see the flying rosella in action, just ask. The dragonfly and the other rosella don't work though. I bought them like that at the store. Don't you hate when that happens?

Here are some more pictures, this includes the frog which I bought off eBay for the equivalent of $90 USD. It is from one of the stores which must have shut down.

Neat items and WOW that's a frog and a half.

Great expression and lovely colouring. What's it made of? Have you got a neat area for it to take over?

I really don't know what its made of. I will most likely put it on top of a shelf so he is 'the eye in the sky'

It has been a while, and I have an update.
I also have golf balls, a children's mug, and two elongated coins which aren't pictured. I also have a safari sea turtle, iguanas, and red eye tree frogs from the Incredible creatures collection and a bluemorpho butterfly, praying mantis, and dragonfly from the hidden kingdom collection.

Thank you. I am thinking of buying the other two elephants as well.

I have found the two elephants, and another 2011 favourite of mine. I have also included the pictures which I have forgot in the post above. I hope you can see the coins, they are a gorilla, a rhino, and a triceratops(with an orangutan). The rhino is out of production.
