This lovely soft cuddly Echidna is made in Australia by Jozzies Australia, in Sydney. He's made from non-allergic, fire resistant wool and synthetic fur fabrics which exceed all Australian safety standards.
The Echidna (also known as the spiny anteater) uses a long sticky tongue to remove its food from ant and termite nests. It is an egg-laying mammal that keeps and suckles its young in a pouch until they are about 3 months old. When threatened it curls into a spiny impenetrable ball. It is found throughout Australia.
Echidna wisdom is about opening your heart to the needs of those around you and the nurturing they can offer.
Measures 12cm x 16cm.
