Re: Mike's question. I'm wondering if this might be a dialect problem. Mike, did you mean "stuffed animal" as in a teddy bear? I've never seen a plush toy that was a sea slug, although many companies are starting sea life lines (I have a "teddy octopus" over my desk that someone gave me).
I did find one site (http://www.plushgifts.com/customdesign.htm) with a "sketch-to-finish" custom order. However, there is a 1,500 unit minimum order. Perhaps not what you were looking for; but you might have a niche market in the malacological or museum community!
You're right I hadn't thought of stuffed toys.
