Bilby plush toy, stuffed animal, Size 27cm
Benny is a large exquisitely soft and realistic soft plush toy bilby. Adopting the Bilby as Australia’s official Easter animal helps to spark public interest in native wildlife conservation & helps to keep conservation efforts moving forward.
Benny is a handmade and airbrushed plush toy that measures 28cm/11″ in length or 34cm/13.5″ including the tail, 13cm/5″ in width and 18cm/7″ in height to the top of the ears.
Bilbies are also known as a rabbit-bandicoot due to their very long ears and they are desert-dwelling marsupial omnivores. There were two species but the lesser bilby became extinct in the 1950s, the greater bilby survives but remains endangered. Bilbies are believed to have inhabited Australia for up to 15 million years. They feature in the songs and stories of Aboriginal Australians.
