Kakamot Plushie - Goding the Pygmy Elephant
Goding the Pygmy Elephant plushie is inspired by the Pygmy Elephant of Borneo. This plushie is 15cm width x 14cm tall and available at Salt x Paper Stationery & Gift shop (click Shop button - while stock lasts).
Scientists once believed this petite pachyderm descended from a domesticated collection of elephants. However, DNA tests show that the Borneo pygmy elephant is genetically different from the Asian elephant. They are considered very gentle and sometimes their tails are so long, they drag on the ground!
Loss of natural habitat is the primary threat to this species. As they lose land, these elephants must come in more frequent contact with humans, which can cause them injuries or even death.
