Rosie, I've amended my post to read 'fish' :24:  I'm an idiot. 
I've only a few animals and paperweights.  I do prefer vases to be honest.  I like seeing others displays with them intermingled but OH has drawn the line at animals  :cry:, so mine sit in a cupboard in the spare room.

I have this large dolphin edited to read 'fish' after Rosie's post below, of course it is a fish :thud:  ;D (11" long), that has the most amazing uranium glow even in daylight.

Actually.... you are not....   :kissy:  :thup:

same colors...  but it looks to me more like a Dolphin or a Killer Whale without their Dorsal fin..... Most "fish" would have dorsal fins, pectoral fins, pelvic fins, anal fins and Caudal fins.

Dolphins and Killer Whales have Pectoral Flippers, a Dorsal fin (missing on your figure) and Flukes (the tail).  
Your figure is one fin away from a Dolphin or Killer Whale, and several fins away from any fish.....

 ;D

 :)  Rosie, you are just fine  :thup:
 Craig, thanks  ;D  Must have been the hedgehog/aardvark/anteater confusion that got to me - then I read fish and thought uhhh.  Obviously it's all because glassmakers have poetic license  :24:

Rosie, I was wondering the same thing re. the otter and hedgehog, but decided it's best to keep my thoughts to myself...  :-X   I wouldn't want anyone to think I'm dirty-minded, you know.  :angel:

By the way, not that I want to complain or anything (though today I seem to be doing it a lot), but what happened to the glass displays?  It's lovely to see all these individual pieces and clusters, but I'd like to go back to the themes and how collectors display their pieces.  Pretty please. :usd:
