Our Plush Woolly Mammoth
We think this stuffed woolly mammoth baby is exceptional. It is so lifelike and compelling. Although it is made of synthetic materials, it looks real. This beautifully detailed woolly mammoth measures 12 long, 4 1/2 inches wide and 9 inches high to the top of the head. The animal's tusks are made of soft short-napped fabric. The designer of this unique line of stuffed animals takes pride in the European heritage of his realistic animal design. Each piece is hand-cut and stitched.
This is not your ordinary stuffed animal. Our plush woolly mammoth has the charm and quality you'll want to keep for a lifetime. It is the kind of toy your child will remember for years to come. It is the kind of "pet" a young child will want to name and create his or her own stories about.
The literature says, "The magical kingdom of Hansa plush was originally created for the most exclusive European clientele. Europeans have treasured these lifelike heirloom creatures for over twenty years. . . . Each Hansa piece is a handcrafted masterpiece, lovingly designed from portraits of real animals. The 'skin' for each of these marvelous beasts is hand-cut and trimmed, never stamped out by machine. The fabric for spotted and striped animals is custom designed and specially manufactured in small lots to Hansa's exacting specifications."

About Woolly Mammoth CalvesThere is ample scientific evidence to prove woolly mammoths (Mammuthus primigenius) tended to gather in matriarchal social groups. Studies of growth rings in recovered tusks show that mammoths lived as long as modern elephants…about 60 years. Cave paintings from the time period also show mammoths collected together in groups. It is speculated that, like modern elephant groups, mammoth groups traveled together and actively defended their young from predators.
A well-preserved seven- to eight-month-old woolly mammoth calf was recovered in northeastern Siberia in 1977. It weighed about 220 pounds at its death and was about 3 1/2 feet tall. The carcass was dated at about 40,000 years old. Then, in 2007, the remains of a one-month-old woolly mammoth calf were discovered, also in Russia. This new calf was dated at 37,000 years old. In both carcasses, the internal organs were all similar to those in modern elephants. Scientists are currently exploring the possibility of using cloning technology to produce a woolly mammoth calf from a modern female elephant.
