Red Kangaroo 43cm by Hansa

$99.00

The Red Kangaroo is one of the most iconic Australian animals and the largest marsupial in the world. Large males have reddish fur and can reach a height of 2m and weigh up to 95kg, while females are considerably smaller and have blue-grey fur. Red Kangaroos are herbivores and mainly eat grass. These kangaroos live in arid and semi-arid zones of Australia. Their diet, including part of their water intake, consists of native grasses, and their populations are therefore very sensitive to droughts.
The Red Kangaroo is a highly social species and can often be found gathering in large groups, called ‘mobs’. Boxing among males in the group takes place to establish authority, with the dominant male leading the mob.
Red Kangaroos can’t move their legs independently of one another, which is why they hop. Their powerful hind legs and large muscular tail allow them to reach speeds of over 56km and jump up to 1.8m high.

Hansa Toys stand apart from the competition because of the quality, attention to detail, and pin point accuracy of specific animal characteristics that are used in each production. Artists create each Hansa animal from portraits of the creature in its natural habitat. Hansa meticulously hand-cuts and trims the coats of each animal, never by machine, and they have specially trained Hansa artisans to create the subtle colouring on the animals by hand painting or airbrushing. On average, there are 42 separate pieces required to make each animal.

Some animals have as many as 240 different parts!
