Is it a porcupine? Is it a hedgehog? No, it is a Hansa Echidna stuffed animal! Such a unique animal in the real world, but also in the Hansa world since our artisans handcraft each item so no two are alike. Covered with long plush resembling spines, and a long beak like a bird, this little guy really grows on you! If you want to be unique, this is the animal for you...
The echidna has spines like a porcupine, a beak like a bird, a pouch like a kangaroo, and lays eggs like a reptile. Also known as spiny anteaters, they’re small, solitary mammals native to Australia, Tasmania, and New Guinea. They’re usually between 12 and 17 inches long and weigh between 4 and 10 pounds.
This plush got a great review when the parcel was opened. It's so cute it could make up for any faux pas you might ever do after a few too many martinis. It worked for me!
So happy to find this unusual animal. My grandson will be thrilled as he has been fascinated by echidnas for quite some time. It is realistic and well made. Delivery was fast. I will definitely shop Hansa again. Thank you.
