The Walrus is often called a loveable lump due to their size and social skills! True to life, the Hansa Walrus is also a loveable lump! Measuring 15 inches in length, this soft bodied stuffed animal has all the details and markings a real to life walrus would have while bathing in the sun in the Arctic ice. Beautiful markings have been air brushed and hand painted making each piece unique. His long tusks complete the look! Hansa is respected the world over for its finely crafted collection of our planet’s animal kingdom. Each plush stuffed animal is meticulously handcrafted from portraits of real animals in their natural habitat. Hansa’s goal is to help educate children and adults alike, about the natural lives of these magnificent creatures, and to understand, respect and appreciate the importance of our co-existence with all animals.
