Sad Otter Beanie
Purchased in 1884 by Melbourne Museum's first director Sir Frederick McCoy, ‘Sad Otter’ rocketed to fame at the tender age of 128 when he featured on the popular website Bad Taxidermy.
While it is not absolutely certain how he came to be so sad (it is likely the preparators had never seen a living specimen), he certainly has made his way into the hearts of many of us at MV, and numerous fans around the world.
These adorable warm beanies were produced especially for Museums Victoria for a limited time only, so while the original Sad Otter is delicately tucked away in storage, he can still keep our heads warm.
