Marco Island Bald Eagles

First, ever heard of the Marco Eagle Sanctuary Foundation, also known as MESF?  They are a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization with the objective to preserve American bald eagles and their habitats. Operating on Marco Island, Florida, they work with people who live on Marco Island and local organizations to ensure the safety of the bald eagles there.  They seek to expand the bald eagle population on Marco Island by educating the community about the importance of these birds.  Take a look at these love birds!

Marco Island Eagle Sanctuary Foundation

Next, Hurricane Irma came in with a direct landfall hit on Marco Island, Florida.  As a result, they suffered a fair amount of damage.  Furthermore, it also prevented the installation of an eagle cam.  Fortunately, the resident bald eagles, Paleo and Calusa, and their nest tree survived.  However, the day after the storm hit, both eagles worked to repair and fortify it.  Nesting season has arrived!  So the folks at the Marco Eagle Sanctuary Foundation look forward to having some eaglets in the near-future.  Consequently, the excitement spread to Stuffed Safari too.  Check out this picture of the eagles nesting there.  We look forward to showcasing some more pictures of the eggs and eaglets as they arrive.

Celebrate Thanksgiving with Zuggy the Pug

It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Here we are in the middle of November with The Adventures of Camellia N. book giveaway complete and one more to go. Enter Zuggy the Pug. The lovable and sometimes mischievous pug has a Thanksgiving story to tell. Last November we did our first ever book giveaway featuring Close at Heart: A Sea Otter Story by Jill Turner. By the way, it’s still available and would make a great Christmas gift for young children. Check out last year’s blog post for details. All of our past book giveaways are worth a look if you need gift giving ideas.

So what does a sea otter book have to do with a Zuggy the Pug book? Good thing you asked. First of all, both showcase super cute subject matter. That one is obvious. Secondly, an independent, first-time author wrote each book. Finally, both books use ABCB rhyme scheme. There are probably a lot more similarities but let’s move on. The books are both rectangular. That doesn’t seem noteworthy. Do we need to point out that both books have words? Both books have pictures. Enough! We need to talk about our current giveaway!

First-time author Jean Alfieri provided us with five copies of Zuggy the Pug – Thanksgiving for our giveaway. Her book is a different than any book we’ve given away previously. Okay, there are probably thousands of reasons why it is different from the other books in our past giveaways. Can we focus on the most important one? It has a “Z” in the title. That’s different. It’s about Thanksgiving. Also different but again, not important. Focus! Zuggy the Pug – Thanksgiving is a coloring book! Now that is a significant difference. Okay, it’s obvious. You need to win this book.

Go ahead, click here to skip to the end and enter. Come right back.

Did you enter the giveaway? It was easy right? We really hope you win. This contest is going to have five winners so your odds are pretty good. Later you will learn how to really increase your odds of winning a Zuggy the Pug coloring book. First, let’s meet the author.

Author Jean Alfieri

Jean & Zuggy

The Author – Jean Alfieri

Jean Alfieri is responsible for bringing Zuggy the Pug to life. Originally from Chicago, and still a White Sox fan, Jean has lived in Indiana, Texas, Wisconsin, and Arizona. She currently resides in Colorado with her husband and dogs. In early 2017, Jean adopted an adult pug. His big personality was an inspiration. It didn’t take her long to decide that this character had to become a character. She set to work writing and self-publishing her book. Since then, Jean has learned that an independent author has to wear many hats. The initial idea to publish a short-story poem grew into something much more significant.

As a Humane Society volunteer and generally charitable person, Jean began to wonder how her book could help others. She and Zuggy were proud of their creation. Still, they wanted to do more. Then it occurred to her, she could donate the Thanksgiving-themed coloring book to a children’s hospital for the holidays. Time to put on another hat! She started a crowd-funding campaign and raised money to donate books and stuffed pugs to the Colorado Springs Children’s Hospital. Contributions are no longer being accepted but you can read all about her charitable campaign here. Kudos to Jean for her hard work!

The Book – Zuggy the Pug – Thanksgiving

Click to Buy the Book

Coloring books are no longer just for kids. Zuggy the Pug – Thanksgiving is no exception. Kids will love coloring the pages as they read about Zuggy’s Thanksgiving shenanigans. However, adult coloring books are a thing now. Adults will love the stress-relieving, time passing, soul-soothing pictures to color. Illustrator Evelon McDonald did a wonderful job of creating her sketches. The drawings are not too complex for youngsters to color. At the same time they offer enough creative freedom to keep adults interested. Maybe it is time to start a new Thanksgiving coloring tradition this year! It’s a great way for a family to bond.

Zuggy the Pug loves Thanksgiving. The turkey leg in his mouth on the cover should be a dead giveaway of that fact. This particular Thanksgiving has a little hiccup. Will Zuggy’s Thanksgiving be a disaster? You’ll have to read the book to learn how Thanksgiving pans out. Pan pun intended.

The poem is delightful to read. Young readers will enjoy practicing their craft with the simple and entertaining story. Most kids will have the story memorized by the time they finish coloring the pages. The poem has a catchy rhythm. You might even find yourself singing it. We hope to read more Zuggy adventures in the future. What does Zuggy do at Christmas or Halloween? You’ll be itching to know!

The Buddy – Zuggy the Pug Stuffed Animal w/ “Z” Bandana

Playing the part of Zuggy is the Sitting Pug Plush Animal by Fiesta. Jean chose this stuffed pug for her donation campaign.

This stuffed Zuggy is only $8.79. You can add the bandana for $3.00. Type “Z is for Zuggy” in the personalization box on our website when you order. We will know exactly what you want. You can buy the book through Jean’s website. Use the link above to visit her site and contact her for details. She expects to have the books for sale directly on the site and Amazon soon.

It seems like writing children’s books was always in the cards for Debbie.

Born in Connecticut, Debbie currently lives in California with her husband, son, and two dogs. She credits her father for inspiring her interest in taking care of the environment and protecting wildlife. Famous scientist Jane Goodall also inspired her studies while in college. The Adventures of Camellia N. series started as a dream that Debbie brought into reality for everyone to share in. She plans to release the third book in the series next year.

Tarantula Information

This week we will learn about the tarantula.  This post is packed full of tarantula information.

Tarantulas are perhaps one of the most popular species of spiders.  Since they pose no threat to humans, they have become popular in the exotic pet trade.  These spiders belong to a family called Theraphosidae.  They vary in size, ranging from the size of a fingernail to the size of a dinner plate when their legs are stretched out.  The largest known tarantula is the goliath birdeater (Theraphosa blondi).

Appearance

Here is some interesting tarantula information concerning their appearance and anatomy.  Tarantulas rely on an exoskeleton for muscular support.  Most species native to the North American continent are brown in color.  Variety in coloration exists in various places around the world.  Some tarantulas exhibit color ranging anywhere from black and white stripes, to cobalt blue, to bright orange and yellow.

Their bodies are covered in two kinds of hair.  One kind are sensory organs called setae.  These help them perceive their surroundings by aiding in the detection of vibrations given off by the movement of prey.  The second kind are referred to as urticating hairs.  Super-fine and barbed, these tiny hairs grow in a patch on the tarantula’s abdomen and are used against prey or predators.  While they cause only minor irritation to humans, they can be lethal to something small like a rodent.  Despite being predators themselves, tarantulas are not without dangers.  Oftentimes, they are hunted by wasps.

Tarantulas possess eight eyes positioned on the top and front of their head, just below their mandibles.  While they can see, they rely mostly upon their sense of touch to function.  They have eight legs, each separated into seven parts listed here.

  • Coxa
  • Trochanter
  • Femur
  • Patella
  • Tibia
  • Tarsus and pretarsus
  • Claw

Tarantula Information

Here’s some tarantula information you might find interesting.  At the end of each spider leg, two, and sometimes three, hook-shaped claws retract and extend to help the spider to grip in climbing.

Diet and Habitat

Tarantulas can live in several different habitats including grasslands, savanna, desert, scrubland, or mountains.  They live in burrows dug underground where they wait for prey to come along.  Then, they strike, injecting venom from its two hollow fangs known as chelicerae.  Attached to appendages known as pedipalps, these fangs stay retracted until a tarantula decides to bite and eat.  Most of a tarantula’s diet consists of insects such as centipedes or millipedes.  Larger ones can subdue large prey such as lizards, mice, birds, bats, and even small snakes.  It is not unheard of for a tarantula to eat another spider.

Tarantulas, and spiders in general, are an object of fear for a lot of people.  Whether this is from popular films featuring spiders in an antagonistic way, or some innate instinct warning us to steer clear of them, it’s fair to say most people are not fond of spiders.  While most insects and arachnids are small, tarantulas can grow large enough in size to pronounce their features.  Iconic in Halloween décor, spider representation is everywhere during the month of October.

Despite the stigma surrounding spiders, we find tarantulas to be fascinating creatures.  Here at Stuffed Safari, you can get your hands on a stuffed tarantula year around.  Check out our selection and bring home a tarantula plush companion of your very own.

I hope you enjoyed this step into The Wild Side with tarantula information.  Subscribe to our blog to learn about more animals in the future.  Feel free to leave any comments or questions in the comment section below.  And, as always, thank you for reading.

This week we will learn about the gray wolf.  This post is packed full of gray wolf information.

The gray wolf (Canis lupus) is also known as the timber wolf or western wolf.  It is a canine pack predator native Eurasian and North American wilderness.  Their roots date all the way back to the Middle Pleistocene.  While their populations has seen its fair share of hard times, the gray wolf is listed as Least Concern on the IUCN, and is not considered an endangered species.  The wolf is a popular animal icon in literature and entertainment.  Stories such as The Boy Who Cried Wolf by Aesop, Little Red Riding Hood by Gustave Dore, and folk lore stories like The Three Little Pigs are just a few of the examples.  It is a common school mascot and sports team name as well.

Appearance

Gray wolves are the largest member of the Canidae family.  Measuring anywhere from forty to sixty inches in length, males can weigh as much as one hundred pounds, females around eighty-five.  Depending on their geographical location, gray wolves can be larger or smaller than these average sizes.  There have been reports of wolves weighing over one hundred and fifty pounds!  As one might guess from the name, their fur typically is mottled gray in color.  However mixes of brown, red, white, and black exist as well.  In the winter, these wolves grow a long thick coat of fur to keep them warm and protected from the elements.  In the summer, they shed this thick coat for a shorter and thinner one.  Wolves, for the most part, look just like dogs, but have a few distinct features.  For one, their paws are bigger, and in general they have larger teeth and a longer muzzle.

Behavior

They are social animals, traveling in packs that, on average, contain between five and eleven animals.  In most cases, a mated pair leads the charge and let their offspring fill the rest of the spots in the pack.  An example of what most wolf packs look like is one to two adults, three to six juveniles, and one to three yearlings.  While most packs are relatively small, packs consisting of as many as forty wolves are not unheard of.  Regardless of the size, the pack sticks together.  They run, sleep, hunt, and eat together just like a family.  The mated pair do run point on hunts while the younger wolves act as backup.  That’s why, when it’s time to eat, Mom and Dad get to eat first.  The mother wolves dig dens to care for their newborns, relying on their mate to bring them food, but she doesn’t have to do this for very long.  Wolves as young as one and a half months old are agile enough to flee from danger.  After a year or so, some of the pack’s offspring will wander out to form packs of their own.

Gray Wolf Information

Here’s some gray wolf information that will blow your mind.  Unlike several other members of the Canidae family, a wolf’s sense of smell is not as powerful.  Hunting dogs have a better sense of smell, and bears even better than them.  Wolves, however, have an amazing sense of hearing.  Their auditory perception allows them to hear frequencies up to 26 kHz.  To break down what that means in practical terms, think of it like this: wolves can hear when a leaf falls from the tree and hits the ground.  Yes!  Their hearing is that good.  The sound of a wolf’s howl can be detected by human ears over a range of fifty square miles.  Wolves howl to alert the pack to danger, announce a hunt, or to locate each other if they find themselves lost or traversing unfamiliar territory.  They also have a natural sense of harmony.  Rather than emulate the same note in a howl, they choose complimentary tones to augment their chorus, making it seem to outsiders that there are more wolves than there actually are.

Diet

The gray wolf is not a picky eater.  While it may prefer to hunt fresh prey with its pack, it will eat just about anything.  If it finds edible berries in the forest or wanders onto a farm growing melons, a gray wolf will gladly fill its belly.  Of course, if this same farm has livestock wandering around, the gray wolf has no trouble picking off the week and feeble among the herd.  When the menu proves scares in the way of fresh food, be it meat or fruit, a gray wolf is not above knocking over a trash can to root around in garbage.  Hey, don’t judge!  Desperate times call for desperate measures.  Gray wolves have a fast metabolism.  A single wolf can eat fifteen percent of its own body weight in just a single feeding.  Most of the time, the wolves hunt fresh, live prey and hunt it as a pack.

Gray Wolf Information

Hunting

When a wolf smells or spots its next meal, it begins a structured hunting ritual, beginning with stalking its prey.  Inching closer and closer, the pack closes in to strike distance from all directions.  Perhaps the most interesting aspect about the way wolves hunt is the rush and the chase.  You see, wolves will not hunt stationary prey.  When a prey holds its ground, a gray wolf will make itself known and try to intimidate its prey into running away.  This seems strange because it runs the risk of its meal escaping and it going hungry, but here’s some gray wolf information that will bring some clarity to this tactic.  Its gait, or walk if you will, averages around five and a half miles per hour.  But when a wolf reaches running speed, it can move as fast as thirty-five miles per hour (faster in some cases).  Lots of animals move can move at that velocity or even faster, but where the wolf has the advantage is endurance.  A gray wolf can hold a rapid pursuit speed for up to twenty minutes.

If you think that’s cool, you’re going to love this.  When a wolf leaps through the air with intent to strike, it can travel up to sixteen feet in a horizontal lunge.  To give you a picture of what that looks like, imagine you’re standing on a full-sized basketball court at the edge of the three-point line.  Look past the out of bounds line and imagine a wolf running at you full-speed.  If the wolf were to initiate its jump under the hoop, it could reach you where you stood in just a single bound.  Scary as that might be to think about, just be glad you’re not an elk or a moose.

Gray Wolf Information

Habitat

Gray wolves originated in Eurasia and eventually migrated to North America.  Just like their versatile diet, gray wolves can live in a variety of places.  Anywhere from deserts, to forests, grasslands, and even frozen tundras.  You can find wolves in every remote forested area you can think of spread across three continents.  They like to claim large territories spread out over hundreds of square miles, traveling far and wide.  This is good for them as it keeps the game for hunting plentiful.

Now, it might sound like we covered everything about the gray wolf, but in reality we have only scratched the surface of the gray wolf information out there.  These fascinating wild animals are great in numbers and often studied by wildlife experts.

At Stuffed Safari, we are proud to carry a wide variety of Stuffed Wolves and Plush Wolves.  From a tiny clip-on plush toy to a forty-inch life-size ride-on wolf stuffed animal, I think our variety and selection speaks volumes of our love for these breathtaking animals.  Take a look at our selection and bring home a wolf plush companion of your very own.

I hope you enjoyed this step into The Wild Side with gray wolf information.  Subscribe to our blog to learn about more animals in the future.  Feel free to leave any comments or questions in the comment section below.  And, as always, thank you for reading.

Having so many stuffed animals at hand, we at Stuffed Safari receive calls for every reason under the sun.

“I need a stuffed teddy bear to ask my girlfriend to Prom.”

“I need twenty-five different stuffed dogs for my daughter’s puppy party.”

“I need a thousand personalized stuffed foxes to help promote my business.”

Hundreds of orders come through every day and hundreds more stuffed animals are boxed up and shipped off to new homes.  Most of the time, these fluffy plush companions are never seen or heard from again.  But every now and then, someone takes the time to get in touch with as and tell us what happened after they received their package.  The stories the make a lasting impression are the ones letting us know exactly how much receiving their stuffed animal meant to them.  We decided to share the story of Scooter and the Stuffed Purple Snake with all of our readers.  So without further ado…Stuffed Safari presents:

Scooter and the Stuffed Purple Snake

Scooter and the Stuffed Purple Snake

Scooter and the Stuffed Purple Snake is a cute and touching tale about a little kitty in Canada and his favorite stuffed animal.  Scooter belongs to Don and Mary from Ontario.  When Scooter was about a year and half old, he fell ill.  They took their beloved pet to the animal hospital because he was not eating.  With no good prognosis from the vet, they took Scooter home to spend what time he had left in the comfort of a familiar place.  But the first thing he did was eat a bit of food, drink some water, and curl up next to his security blanket: a stuffed snake of all things.

Fourteen years later, Scooter is alive and well, and that stuffed snake had been a constant nap buddy for him throughout the years.  Unfortunately, one of Don and Mary’s other cats had a mishap with the stuffed snake, ruining it.  This, as you might imagine, put Scooter in a great amount of distress.  Poor little guy!  I can just imagine him pacing and meowing, wondering aloud where his stuffed snake had gone.  As loving pet owners, Don and Mary sought to find a replacement, and that’s how the found us.

While we were not able to find a snake of the exact likeness to the original, we were able to help provide a suitable replacement.  We boxed up the Multi-Print Lavender Snake Stuffed Animal by Aurora and shipped it off to its new home.  About a week later, we received the email with the pictures of Scooter snuggled up next to his new stuffed snake, and we only had one reaction.

“Awwwwwwww!”

With any business—even the stuffed animal business—it’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day routine and forget that every one of our orders has a destination and a story behind it.  Don and Mary gave us a warm and heartfelt reminder at how big a difference something as simple as a purple stuffed snake can make.  They expressed several times how pleased they were with our customer service, our shipping efficiency, and the pleasant conversation they had with one of our representatives when they called to place their order over the phone.  It’s always nice to hear that we’ve done a good job, but it is far more rewarding to know that what we do every day, even if we don’t know it, is affecting people in a positive way.

And they tell us that Scooter is now a very happy cat.

Great White Shark Information & Facts

This may go without saying, but here at Stuffed Safari we love animals.  Not just the stuffed ones either.  Everyone who works here has at least one pet, and most of us have more than one.  When we’re not busy selling stuffed animals, we love to learn about the real-life counterparts to the plush toys we sell.  Today we explore the great white shark.  This post is packed with great white shark information and facts!  You can find these fearsome creatures in the coastal surface waters of all major oceans.  That’s right!  These carnivorous fish are prowling the waters in every corner of our planet with the exception of the extreme north and south.  These marine predators have been around since the early Miocene epoch.  Shark ancestors are older than dinosaurs and have hunted in earth’s waters for roughly 450 million years!

Great White Shark Information

Physical Appearance

Size

Great white sharks are known for their size.  Males, on average, measure between 11 and 13 feet in length while the females can reach 14 or even 16 feet in length.  Unconfirmed, but recorded incidents of freakishly large great white sharks have been listed over the years. There are many claims of great white specimens reaching between 19 and 37 feet long.  While unconfirmed, just imagine that for a moment.  That’s a shark that is only slightly shorter than a school bus!

Teeth

Great white sharks might not say much but they sure do have some big mouths.  Here’s a fun tidbit of great white shark information: a complete set of teeth numbers 222.  They aren’t like our teeth, however.  Several inches long, serrated, and arranged in a series of rows, these natural weapons are meant for the sole purpose of sawing through large hunks of flesh.  Yikes!

Coloring

Another distinctive feature of great white sharks is their counter shading.  While their dorsal area most often appears gray, its underside is stark white, hence the name.  This coloring acts as natural camouflage for the great white shark as it makes it difficult for their prey to spot the shark because it mottles the shark’s outline when seen from the side.  As if these apex predators of the sea weren’t scary enough already!  Perhaps it’s not the best time to mention they can accelerate to as fast as 25 MPH in the water for short bursts.

Great White Shark Information

Behavior

Great white sharks predominantly feed upon marine mammals for food.  When it comes to the food chain in the oceans, great white sharks are at the very top.  Their only natural predators being killer whales, and mostly in the way of competition.  Studies show that these predators have varying tastes from shark to shark.  They have been known to hunt according to their preferences.  One of the things that makes them such effective hunters is their extra sense granted to them by special sensing organs known as electroreceptors.  These allow them to detect the electromagnetic field emitted by the movement of marine animals.  Great whites are so keen with this sense that they can even sense the heartbeat of immobile animals.

The sense of smell of a great white shark is so sensitive it can smell blood in the water from a mile away.  Since smells travel faster through the air than water, great whites have been known to regularly lift their heads above the sea surface to get a better look, or sniff in this case, at their prey.

Lifespan

Here’s another piece of great white shark information you might find interesting: they live for as long as 70 years or more.  These long-lived creatures take between 26 and 33 to reach maturity to produce offspring.

At Stuffed Safari, we are proud to carry a wide variety of Stuffed Great White Sharks and Plush Great White Sharks.  From small Mini Flopsies to jumbo 40 inch stuffed sharks, I think our variety and selection speaks volumes of our love for these amazing animals.  Take a look at what we have to offer and bring home a great white shark plush companion of your very own.

I hope you enjoyed this step into The Wild Side with great white shark information.  You can read about the other shark species featured in our 2017 Shark Safari here.  Subscribe to our blog to explore more animals in the future.  Feel free to leave any comments or questions in the comment section below.  And, as always, thank you for reading.

The Wild Side – Hammerhead Shark http://blog.stuffedsafari.com/wild-side-hammerhead-shark/ http://blog.stuffedsafari.com/wild-side-hammerhead-shark/#respond Thu, 27 Jul 2017 17:00:25 +0000 http://blog.stuffedsafari.com/?p=806 Hammerhead Shark Information & Facts This might go without saying, but here at Stuffed Safari we love animals.  Not just the stuffed ones either.  Everyone who works here has at least one pet and most of us have more than one.  When we’re not busy selling stuffed animals, we love to learn about the real-life counterparts to the plush toys we sell.  Today we explore the hammerhead shark.  This post is packed with hammerhead shark information and facts.  You can find these fascinating creatures worldwide in warmer waters along the coastlines and continental shelves.  That’s right!  These carnivorous fish are […]

Hammerhead Shark Information & Facts

This might go without saying, but here at Stuffed Safari we love animals.  Not just the stuffed ones either.  Everyone who works here has at least one pet and most of us have more than one.  When we’re not busy selling stuffed animals, we love to learn about the real-life counterparts to the plush toys we sell.  Today we explore the hammerhead shark.  This post is packed with hammerhead shark information and facts.  You can find these fascinating creatures worldwide in warmer waters along the coastlines and continental shelves.  That’s right!  These carnivorous fish are prowling the waters in every corner of our planet.  These marine predators have been around since the middle Miocene epoch.  Shark ancestors are older than dinosaurs and have hunted earth’s oceans for roughly 400 million years!

Physical Appearance

The most distinctive feature specific to the hammerhead shark is the peculiar shape of its head.  Flattened laterally extended into a hammer shape called a cephalofoil.  Scientists speculate a variety of functions for this distinct shape included prey manipulation, sensory reception, and maneuvering.  A theory has been advanced proposing the hammer-like shape of their heads may have evolved in part to enhance the animal’s vision.  Mounted on the sides of the shark’s distinctive hammer head, the positioning of the eyes gives the shark 360-degree vision in the vertical plane.  This adaptation allows them to see both above and below them at all times.

Usually light gray with a greenish tent, like their great white cousins, they have white underbellies allowing them to blend into the ocean when viewed from the bottom.  This makes it easier for them to sneak up on their prey.

Size

Here’s some hammerhead shark information you might enjoy.  Hammerheads range from 3 to 19 feet long and weigh between 6 and 1200 pounds.  That’s longer than most cars and over half of a ton. You can find hammerhead sharks in a huge spectrum of sizes!

Behavior

A unique attribute of the hammerhead shark: during the day, hammerheads swim together in schools, but at night they turn into solitary hunters.  Large schools of hammerheads can be found close to Malpelo Island in Colombia, Molokai in Hawaii, in shallow waters off the coast of southern and eastern Africa, and Cocos Island off Costa Rica.  In the summer hammerhead sharks participate in a mass migration in search of cooler waters.

hammerhead shark information

Hammerhead sharks have been known to attack humans but the occurrences are few and far between.  For the most part they leave us alone.  Humans, however, hunt these creatures for their fins as they are considered a delicacy in certain countries in Asia.  Not cool!

Reproduction

Here’s another interesting tidbit of hammerhead shark information for you: they mate only once a year.  Female hammerheads yield litters between 12 and 15 young and no parental care is given to newborns.  They huddle together, swimming toward warm water until they are old enough to hunt and survive on their own.

Diet

Hammerhead sharks are carnivorous feed on a large variety of prey.  Anything from crustaceans, squid, octopus, fish, and even other sharks.  Since stingrays also hang around near the ocean floor, hammerheads particularly enjoy hunting them.  Using its head to pin down the stingray, it feeds when its prey is weak and in shock.

At Stuffed Safari, we are proud to carry a wide variety of Stuffed Hammerhead Sharks and Plush Hammerhead Sharks.  From seven-inch stuffed sharks, to jumbo plush hammerheads sharks measuring forty-eight inches in length, I think our variety and selection speaks volumes of our love for these amazing animals.  Take a look at what we have to offer and bring home a hammerhead shark plush companion of your very own today.
