"Poll's Bichir" Polypterus palmas polli handmade beanie plush toy


This plush is made of custom printed minky fabric to my own design, sewn and stuffed with polyester stuffing. Plastic "beans" in their belly mean they have some weight and are floppy. They have plastic metallic safety eyes.

These plushies will come with a certificate of authenticity, detailling their species, the date they were made and proving that they are an original Palaeoplushie handmade in Scotland by Rebecca Groom.

As this is a hand made item, it is not intended for children and is designed to be an art piece for adults. As they are stitched by machine, they won't fall apart if handled roughly but have not passed the relevant safety standards to be sold as a child's toy.

Plushie Dimensions: 48cm long
Description: Polypterus palmas polli is a West African species of bichir. They are nocturnal predators which hunt primarily by scent. Young birchirs have a set of external gills which are lost as they mature. They are a smaller species of bichir and can grow to 33cm long.
