Mushroom Cane Toad Skin
Tanned and Dyed Leather
Toad leather first caught the public's eye when Prince Charles was presented a cane toad leather bound book by the Premier of Queensland.
The cane toad was introduced to Australia in 1935 from Hawaii to help combat the sugar cane beetle.
It has since over-populated and is now considered a major pest.
The production of exotic leather goods helps to keep the bufo in check.
The cane toad was introduced to Florida as well, for grub control in the sugar cane fields, and became established in Southwest Florida due to an accidental release of 100 specimens from the stock of a pet shop owner at the Miami International Airport in 1955.
Professionally tanned and dyed Bufo marinus skin.
The unique glazing process allows the subtle textures of the toad skin to remain intact.
