QUESTION:
Is it haraam to have models of animals as pieces of decoration in the house ?
How about models of humans ? 
These are not real humans but toys.
How about pictures of animals in a jungle ? 
These are not real pictures but paintings.

ANSWER:
It is not Haram but Makruh to have models in human or animal form as
decorations. There is no harm in pictures or paintings of humans or animals.

In Namaz, to face such pictures or models is Makruh, unless they are
covered. It is also Makruh to pray in a room with such a picture, even if
you are not facing it, except if it is covered. see Islamic Laws, Agha
Seestani, Masail 907.

And Allah knows best
