Sad Otter Plush
Purchased in 1884 by the first director of Melbourne Museum, Sir Frederick McCoy, ‘Sad Otter’ as he has affectionately come to be known, 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.
This plush replica was especially made for us, so while the original Sad Otter is delicately tucked away in storage, we can all have one to play with at home or in the office.
