Though moose are used to going it alone, this plush stuffed Moose Cuddlekin seems befuddled. Thinking to himself that he is a fine stuffed animal example of his living counterparts, his coat is... well, luxuriously plush and his body... well, huggably soft. In fact, this Moose Cuddlekin would happily trade cold habitats for a warm home and welcoming arms. No age requirement. Child or adult would make him equally delirious with happiness. Non-toxic materials—polyester plush exterior, polyethylene pellet interior and lock washer eyes—meet or exceed U.S. safety standards. Surface-washable. Imported. Ages 3 and up. 10"h (including antlers) x 12"l. x 7"w.
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—from polar to desert regions and from dry to humid environments. The largest living members of the deer family, moose are also the only ones with palmate antlers. In the United States, moose are found throughout most of Alaska and in northern New England, upstate New York, the upper Rocky Mountains, northeastern Minnesota and on Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and Isle Royale.
