“G’day, mate!” this friendly birdie seems to say as he floats by you on the warm coastal waters of the Land Down Under.
The perfect addition to your budding stuffed aviary for the novice ornithologist (bird scientist), Cuddlekins adorable plush Australian Pelican is a real hoot.
He’s got a mostly white body, with gray feet and a super long beak. Did you know that of all the species of pelican in the world, his is the longest? And what’s that crazy pouch for underneath his beak? That is how he eats! Wild! The way it works is, him and his friends get into a group to herd the fish together, then they plunge their heads into the water to scoop up a fish (which is their favorite meal by the way). Now, the fish, and some water are in that little pouch. By pushing their beak against their chest, they squeeze out the water, leaving the fish, which they then swallow. Birds don’t have teeth, so have to do things differently from you and me. Crazy, huh?
Wild Republic’s cute little plush pelican will give you no end of delight as he sits in your favorite spot, watching the world go by. You don’t have to feed him, but you can make up for the lack of fish with a surplus of hugs and love! He’ll definitely go for that.
