It's guaranteed not to bite, but this Bed Bug (Cimex lectularius) is still great for squeezing tight!
Bed bugs aren't as common as they used to be, but surely no-one would mind finding this cuddly fellow in their bed! They are parasitic insects with blood as their only food source. This species just loves the taste of human blood and are most active at night. As bed bugs are sometimes found while travelling, this plush toy would make a fun "Bon Voyage " or "Welcome Home!" gift, or a comforting bedtime companion. Giant Microbes are also excellent teaching aids as they assist students to develop an understanding of biology while taking a fun, hands on approach. No dissections or microscopes required here!
Not for children under three years of age as parts may dislodge and become a choking hazard.
Bed Bug is 140 x 140 x 60mm, made of pink medium-pile polyester plush with red no-pile legs, polyester filling and plastic eyes.
