Koala with hat, vest and swag plush toy , stuffed animal, Size 16cm/6.25″
Jack is a small exquisitely soft and realistic soft plush toy koala dressed in the cutest attire with hat, vest and swag. A swagman was a short-term labourer who travelled by foot from farm to farm carrying his belongings in a swag. The term originated in Australia in the 19th-century. Koala bears are adored all over the world as our national symbol of Australia’s unique wildlife.
This handcrafted koala measures 16cm/6.25″ in height including the ears, 17cm/6.75″ in length and 13cm/5″ in width.
Koalas diet consists of only eucalyptus leaves, often choosing leaves at the top of the tree that contains more liquid and nutrients, and can eat up to a kilogram a day. However they only eat 50 out of 700 eucalypt species. Even though eucalyptus is poisonous to most animals their digesting organ helps to detoxify the chemicals.
