Poaching and disease have seen the population of Western Lowland Gorillas decline by an astonishing 65% in the last 25 years. Even with the threat of poaching and hunting removed, it will take at least 75 years before their numbers can return to previous levels. As a result, they are critically endangered and need our protection.
Boogie Gorilla’s soft grey plush fur has fabulous hand-applied shading transitions through his body and his haunches. Velvety accents to his face, hands and feet and auburn hues to his head achieve an ultra-realistic look. The care Steiff have taken creating this gorgeous gorilla makes Boogie the perfect addition to your family.
