Our Hansa Opossum stuffed animal fits nicely in your hand and has all the realistic details you would find on a real opossum. His skinny little tail, soft furry body and small face with dark eyes makes him come alive! Just imagine the delight a child would experience receiving this adorable little animal. 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 Hansas exacting specifications. Their coats are meticulously hand-cut and trimmed, never stamped out by machine.
There are more than 60 different species of opossum, which are often called possums. The most notable is the Virginia opossum or common opossumâ€”the only marsupial (pouched mammal) found in the United States and Canada. Babies immediately crawl into the mother's pouch, where they continue to develop. As they get larger, they will go in and out of the pouch and sometimes ride on the mother's back as she hunts for food.
