Alrighty, so WHAT'S A SCUTE? (also spelled 'Skute')

"Scutes" are the bony (osteoderm) dermal ridges you see on the gator's back, they are circles of bone with a ridge in the center of each (see photos below)

Feel better now that you know?

Scutes have been bleached.  Average size is 1-1/2 to 2-1/8" diameter, some are white, yellow, brown, some gnarly, some with a slightly raised ridge, some with a pronounced ridge, some with lots of texture, some quite smooth (depending on where it was located on the gator's back); some with the skin on.

Easy to make into jewelry, or just to enjoy as an unusual collectible.  100% of the gators harvested by government permit in Florida are used in some way.  This is a good example of it.

Never have we had them before.



Gators do not have a bone within the penis, as some animals do. Our gator guy, however, has literally tanned some of the alligator penises, though they are cartilage, they are perfectly preserved, and made into key chains.

How weird is that?

Customer Tom in Cupertino, California bought numerous alligator teeth from us to replace wooden carved teeth in a Freshwater crocodile (Crocodylus Novaeguineae) head sculpture he purchased in New Guinea, it came from the Sepik River. 

These decorated skulls are used in ceremonies in place of traditions such as head hunting which was banned in the 1960's but documented as still occurring in the late 1980's!  The skull is 33 inches long and has been embellished with shells..

It took a stack of paperwork to clear customs, as saltwater crocs are endangered and customs had to make sure this was a freshwater species.  Imagine this behemoth in their 500 square foot apartment!
