Our possum tails are sourced and processed in New Zealand with all natural methods, the same as skins for human use.
There are no issues with these getting through Australian customs. Please contact your local customs for more info (they are dried, treated and tanned like leather).
Unfortunately possums were introduced to NZ from Australia and have caused immense problems for our native bird and tree populations. Possums are culles regularly to help to keep the population down. The fur has been used for possum skin and wool for human use, and we are lucky enough to get the off cast tails for doggies!
Treat your babe to the most natural and sustainable toy you can get them. They will adore it as much as Ludo I'm sure.
