This Cheetah cub was made by Hansa toys. Like with most of Hansa's plush they are very realistic and quite detailed. Cheetahs have long fur around their heads when they are babies which they gradually loose as they get older. They are kind of the opposite of Lions. This cheetah plush stands 18" tall, is 12" deep excluding his 15" tail and is 6" wide. His Hansa item number is: 4303. I also have another cheetah cub plush from Hansa that is standing as well as a life size adult cheetah.
