These faux furs swatches have the feel of animal pelts or animal study skins, but not the shape. These faux animal furs are perfect for carrying in a backpack for the classroom or excursions into the field. These Kind Fur® replicas consist of a long piece of faux fur that is then folded in half, and hand-sewn around the edge and labeled with an identification tag. These two-sided animal fur swatches measure approximately 8" x 5". As with the boxed animal furs, these have the feel of animal pelts or animal study skins but no animals are harmed in the process of producing these. Over thirty different animal fur replicas are now available, including opossum, beaver, muskrat, squirrel, rabbit, bat, bear, cougar, bobcat, raccoon, skunk, badger, weasel, coyote, red fox, gray fox, and wolf. In addition to many other educational uses, fur replicas help illustrate the Next Generation Science Standard (NGSS), specifically Disciplinary Core Idea (DCI) LS1.
