Bullfrog and Cane Toad Skins

Bullfrog and Cane Toads skins are excellent materials for watch straps.  Cane Toad is especially good because these are from Australia where they had been introduced in the early half of the 20th century (in a misguided attempt at pest control) and where they have since become an invasive species and are doing great damage to much local flora and fauna in Australia.  Controlling their numbers has become a critical necessity for the environmental preservation of the Australian continent.  To read more about the Cane Toad as one of Australia’s most persistent invasive species, follow this link to The National Geographic.  So if you are looking for an exotic leather with which you can be more than just guilt-free, but will actually be helping the delicate environment of Australia, Cane Toad is that leather.  Luckily enough for us, that these hides are the perfect size for making watch straps!  Additionally, of course, I can happy to request custom colors from our supplier, so if you have an idea for a color you might like for your strap, please let me know !
