Porosus Crocodile Tails - Farm Raised (Top Quality) - Luxury Skins (Glazed Red/Oranges)
**We are not currently set up to export, for now these are only purchases in the US**
We are excited to have available a limited run of Porosus Crocodile Tails. Porosus Crocodile is a luxury exotic leather that has one of the most distinct looks due to its beautiful and unique scales. Porosus Crocodile is arguably the top of the luxury exotics leathers and has become one of the most sought for high end leather goods.
These specific Porosus Crocodile tails are farm raised which is the highest quality and selected from only grade 1/2 bodies. These being glazed they go through an added step where the fully aniline dyed skins are polished by a special agate stone. This creates an incredible depth to the vibrant colors that just can't be reproduced any other way. When natural light hits the skins the colors come alive. Hence again the reason glazed crocodile is so special and highly sought after.
We are really excited to offer these tails, we think it can be a nice lower cost entry into exotics. So many amazing products are made from the tails - Watch Straps, Camera Straps, Card Wallets, Lanyards, Coin Cases, Accents, Card Slots...the list goes on. The price of the complete crocodile skin the tails came from were easily $1000+. Most the tails are priced at a fraction of the cost ($70-150) depending on grade and size. We hope you enjoy this special opportunity and are looking forward to the seeing the projects you create!
For ease in choosing a tail we have measured them in both width (just below the butt) and length (from butt to end of tail) and noted that on each listing. We have adjust the price if it is more or less than the average so that you pay according to the size.
We have also added size groupings for quick reference. You should be able to cut out a nice wallet exterior in each size

Normal grading process for crocodile/alligator is only done for the belly. The tails never get graded, but with each one being unique we wanted to create a grading process to help you understand what you are getting. The grading process is from A-D (most the skins are A and B) and has appropriate discounts for each grade the lower you go. Also we also offer a discount if the length of the tail is shorter than average. Some skins may have irregular scales, we have identified these skins with *IR and offered a discount. Most cases they are fairly symmetric and really cool looking. We hope that helps!
