A beautifully designed realistic looking Hansa Tapir stuffed animal is measuring 14 inches in length. This animal which looks like a combination of a pig and a rhino is really cute. Covered in luxurious plush this unusual animal has a very sweet and loveable face. Add to a safari collection or perk up the imagination of a young person! 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).
Tapirs look something like pigs with trunks, but they are actually related to horses and rhinoceroses. This eclectic lineage is an ancient one—and so is the tapir itself. Scientists believe that these animals have changed little over tens of millions of years.
Very cute toy! Excellent quality!
