If you Google Muskrat you will see a picture that looks just like our Hansa Muskrat! This little bundle of fur has all the realistic qualities of a real animal. Beautiful soft brown fur covers his body and a face looking up saying "take me home..." What makes Hansa plush stuffed animals so different from their competitors is the quality and pinpoint accuracy of specific animal characteristics that are used in each production. Each piece is designed with a unique personality by artists from portraits of animals in their natural habitat. The custom designed "coat" of each character is meticulously hand cut by seasoned craftsmen for a distinctive and personal look. From the tip of a giraffe nose to the bottom of a mouse foot and in every soulful eye, lovingly detail is present in each character to give them the life-like look that is unmistakably Hansa.
Muskrats are excellent swimmers, thanks to their webbed back feet, laterally flattened tails, and the ability to hold their breath underwater for 15-20 minutes. They can swim backwards and forwards.
Love the fur. Super soft. The tail freaked out my eldest child but to me that is a good thing as it is very realistic.
Good quality construction, and fairly realistic. Definitely an unusual plush animal! Showed it to trappers who know muskrat really well and they commented that the hair is a bit too long, and tail is too short.
