Though they're no relation, the little kangaroo rat is built to hop like a kangaroo, with big hind legs and smaller front legs. This adorable 8-inch stuffed kangaroo rat is covered in soft golden brown fur, with a white throat and belly, and a long thin tail tufted with bushy gray hair. Big, round eyes and tiny ears make this cuddly rat extra cute.
Found this adorable little guy for one of our kids at Joshua Tree National Park Visitor Center! Later in our trip his sibling decided she wanted one too, so we ordered online. Just as cute as the first. Such a snuggly friend!
