The Giraffe Weevil (Trachelophorus giraffa) is a weevil native to Madagascar. It is aptly named for its long neck, longer in males than in females. It is used for nest building - males will roll up a leaf for their mate to lay an egg in.

***Plush Details***

This giraffe weevil is made of fleece, safety eyes, pipe cleaner, wire, and stuffed with polyfil. Created with a combination of hand and machine sewing.

There are wires in the legs and neck, making them posable. For this reason it will be shipped in a box for protection.

This is my own original design, I have no pattern.

Measures about 20" (50.8cm) long x 20" (50.8cm) wide x 10" (25.4cm) tall.

***Disclaimer***

Most of my creations do best as display pieces, or as stuffed animals for adults and older children. Many have plastic eyes and delicate parts not suitable for babies or small children.
