National Geographic Tami monkey is a cuddly creature standing 9 inches tall. She is modeled after animals from the marmoset family, a species that is highly threatened due to deforestation. Because of their cute appearance, these little monkeys are also caught and kept as pets. They are on the Red List of Threatened Species and are at risk of extinction. But this one is made of soft and cuddly plush fabric. Her little face is grey and her head is full of long white plush fabric. The airbrush technique uses brown to add emphasis to her claws, the edge of her ears, her mouth, and the mask of her face. She has a white stomach that transitions to a brown back with a long bushy tail. The supporting rods in her front legs help her keep her pose while sitting. This cute, lovable friend will remind your child of the beauty of the animal kingdom and makes for an exotic-looking playmate. Your purchase today helps support scientists, explorers and researchers from the National Geographic Society so they can continue to protect animals like Tami who are facing extinction.
