This 12 inch Hansa Ermine is such a unique stuffed animal and his real to life characteristics makes him super loveable. Covered in white luxurious plush with a black tipped tail and a black nose he comes to life when you hold him. His mischievous look is a great addition to any child's grouping of animals. Significant research goes into reproducing every animal species. The fabric for the spotted and striped plush stuffed animals is custom designed and exclusively manufactured in small quantities to Hansa's exacting specifications. Their coats are meticulously hand-cut and trimmed, never stamped out by machine. Hand sewn leather paws, swishing tails and especially soulful eyes and faces are lovingly detailed to give each stuffed animal its lifelike look. Each and every animal produced is hand finished by Hansa's artists to create each with their very own unique personality (just as in real life)
Ermine is the common name for a small, northern weasel, Mustela erminea, characterized by a short, black-tipped tail, a long body with short legs, and fur that is dark brown in summer and turns white during snowy, winter conditions. This member of the mammal family Mustelidae is the most widely distributed weasel, being found throughout the northern temperate, subarctic, and Arctic regions of Europe, Asia, and North America.
Super cute little ermine, pretty life-like. My daughter received this for Christmas and is delighted. She likes ermines and raccoons in particular because of the movie Furry Vengeance in which a group of forest animals derails a proposed housing development that would have destroyed their forest. An ermine and a raccoon feature prominently in that movie. I am pleased with this purchase.
Finally, but beautiful
