Information: Kangaroos are huge marsupials that only live in Australia. Their distinct characteristics include muscular tails, big feet, strong legs and backs, pointed ears, and the females have pouches with mammary glands. The pouch is utilised to protect and feed the baby kangaroo called a joey. At birth, it can be just as small as a rice grain or a bee (0.2 inches to 0.9 inches). The joeys also defecate and urinate inside the pouch. The mother kangaroo will clean it by inserting her snout and using her tongue. The largest kangaroo is the red Kangaroo with a length of 3.25 feet to 5.25 feet, and tail of 35.5 inches to 43.5 inches. Kangaroos are herbivorous animals and eat leaves, grasses, flowers, ferns, and other vegetation. They regurgitate their food just like the cow and re-chew it before it will be totally digested. In order to move from one place to another, kangaroos normally hop at speeds of about 20-25 km/h. However, it can reach the speed of 70 km/h at short distances. This fast means of locomotion has evolved due to the need to travel long distances to search for water and food.

Portraits in Nature is a hand-crafted collection of realistic plush animals. Artists working in a socially responsible and environmentally responsible studio create each Hansa animal from portraits of the creature in its natural habitat.

The Hansa Story
Artisan hand sew the animals "inside out", an old world tradition that results in the mininisation of seams, and their bodies are carefully "sculpted" to create "musculature" and "features" like movement in a walking or sitting position that are unique to each creature. On average, there are 42 separate pieces required to make each animal, that must be combined by a team of truly creative artists to create the distinctly realistic features that characterise HANSA animals. (Some animals have as many as 240 different parts!) Each animal is individually hand sewn, to give it a unique "personality", there are more than 860 different fabrics and man-made furs from which the "coat" and "hides" are made, along with over 6000 sets of different eyes, whiskers, claws, noses, and related accessories allocated for creating these wonderful plush animals. Stuffing emphasises careful attention to the placement of the highest quality man-made materials.

When you hold these wonderfully "life-like" animals, you will see and feel HANSA's emphasis on quality, which is a result of careful attention to design, custom fabric selection, cutting, sewing, stuffing, eye placement, feature creation, framing, air brushing and finishing. Since each animal is hand sewn, there will be slight variations in appearance.
