The sweet-and-gentle Fawn puppet is adorably designed - from its soft vinyl nose down to its soft vinyl hooves. Big black eyes and silky spotted fabric 'fur' details complete the realism of this hand puppet. Movable head and front legs. Measures 13? long x 5? wide x 9? high. (Folkmanis 2573)

FACTS OF INTEREST: In the spring, a doe gives birth to one, two or even three fawns. The mother keeps them hidden for a few days. Newborn fawns have so little scent that even a dog cannot smell them. They also have the instinct to stay still for protection. A fawn can run with its mother when it is a week old. It is camouflaged by its spots until it gets a winter coat. Fawns play together, rearing up to box with their forelegs, buttin and chasing. They learn good lessons in herd life and safety.
