Replica fur (Kind Fur®) is an ideal resource for educators. Designed primarily to give children the look and feel of animal fur, these replicas go well with storytelling and discovery table activities. We need to emphasize, however, that these replicas are not study skins (they lack eye holes, ears, noses, paws and tails). On the other hand, unlike real fur, these replicas do not have special storage or treatment requirements. They also do not require knowledge of complex and ever-changing regulations regarding State of Origin fur tags, permits, transfers, and associated necessary record keeping.

Most importantly, Kind Fur® does not require trapping animals better left alive in the wild. Regarding these replicas, it is important to note that in nature there is tremendous variation in fur color, even on a single specimen, let alone among the same species in different locations or seasons. These replicas are close in appearance (and feel) to animal furs, but won't match perfectly with any given real fur. Also, as can be the case with skull replicas, high-quality faux fur can sometimes cost more than real fur.

While realistic in appearance, replica fur can always be identified by looking at the backing—replica fur have cloth fabric backing, as opposed to tanned animal hide. Twenty-five years ago, Acorn Naturalists made a concerted effort to encourage people to embrace the skull replica concept to reduce demand for real skulls. Acorn Naturalists is now pioneering the concept of replacing real fur with replica fur, or Kind Fur®.

KIND FUR® (boxed, one-si ded, glued). Acorn Naturalists. These Kind Furs® are securely adhered with non-toxic water-based glue to the inside of a protective 12 inches long x 9 inches wide x 2 inches deep wooden slide-top box (custom crafted in the US for Acorn Naturalists' Kind Furs®). Students can study and feel the fur, and slide the protective lid over it when done. Boxes are labeled on the back, making it easy to set them out on a table for quiz games or activities such as matching a sample with skull, track or scat replicas. $32.90 each. MIX OR MATCH 10 (BOXED), $29.61 each.
