    Does anyone else collect realistic stuffed animals? I have a nice sized collection. I have a Naked Mole Rat, a Ground Pangolin, a Rockhopper Penguin, an Okapi, several birds, an American Red Squirrel, a Pacific White-Sided Dolphin, and a Red River Hog. I probably have more that I can't remember right now.

    Me too! I've got numerous foxes and rhinos, some budgerigars, a giant Anteater, a gorilla, a dusky dolphin, a thylacine, an adult and juvenile Malayan tapir, an aardvark, an okapi, a binturong, a slow loris, a wild boar and a pangolin (in multicolour so not sure that one counts!)

    I'm still kicking myself I didn't get the bongo from the shop at Blackpool Zoo last year. But I really don't have much room for any more :oops:

    Yes, I love the realistic plushies, and would like more. You can only find them at zoos, seems like!
    I have an anteater, a giraffe, and an aardvark. I am always on the look out for a new unusual one at the zoo.

    The only exceptionally realistic one I have is one of those realistic stuffed tigers you can win at carnivals. My youngest cat used to be afraid of it.
