More Information

This is used in connection with taxodermy and stuffed animals.

The idea with tlhut is not that you're holding or storing or retaining or saving or housing whatever's inside (even if only temporarily, as with the food), but that you're filling something up to attain a specific shape or look (stuffing/filling the skin of a dead animal, stuffing/filling some material to look like a teddy bear). With ghoD, the ultimate shape of the stuffed thing doesn't matter; with tlhut, it's supposed to matter (though you may be unsuccessful).

You wouldn't use tlhut for a piñata.
