Since Meerkats usually live in families of 20 or more, Plush Stuffed Flopsie the Meerkat is very anxious to find a loving home with you. It’s ok if your place is not the Kalahari Dessert, though Plush Stuffed Flopsie the Meerkat may need to eat a lot of pretend scorpions which she knows you won’t have. You can tell by Flopsie the Meerkat’s expression that she is a little nervous. All she wants or needs is a hug and a home. Plush Stuffed Flopsie the Meerkat is made of high quality kid safe materials—soft non toxic mohair exterior; polyester fiber interior; lock washer eyes and nose—and meets all U.S. safety standards. Surface-washable. Imported. Ages 3 and up. 5.5"l. x 6"w. x 12"h.
The Small Mammal House at the Smithsonian’s National Zoological Park is home to some very cute meerkats. Members of the mongoose family, these African mammals start each day by emerging from their cool underground burrows to take a sunbath. Mammals, which include human beings, are one class of warm-blooded vertebrate animals that have evolved and adapted to our planet. The Kenneth E. Behring Family Hall of Mammals at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History explores the diversity of some 274 mammals and how they originated and adapted to changing landscapes and environments over the last 225 million years.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
