I took this picture to show the manager of the zoo gift shop what new plushy she should order.

Some manner of flightless nocturnal bird. I can't recall ever seeing one of those.

Ah! Spoonbills! Roseate or other?

Nope not a spoonbill--blame the beanie baby people for the resemblance.

kiwi would be too obvious

but always go with the obvious

beanie beak

Their nostrils placed at the very tip of their bills
Their long thin bills for probing in soft ground
And it's been said that on calm nights in the high country
Their voices can be heard for miles around.

That is a powerfully loud whistle!

Obviously some sort of strangely proportioned platypus.

I was hoping your Tumblr post on cassowaries was a hint, but it doesn't look that way!

They do make a heck of a racket if they're comfortable. Out in the wild it's a pleasant sound; inside a building it makes you jump out of your skin.

I want to say kiwi but I'm distracted by the huge wings. That said, anatomical accuracy is not generally the province of beanie babies. (I have a cat toy that was labelled "horse" and yet it has horns and cloven feet. The neck's a bit long so we can't decide if it's meant to be a cow or a giraffe without markings.)

The wings rule out a long-beaked echidna, but that beak sure /looks/ like a long-beaked echidna to me.
