There is no longer a need to kill a reptile for fashion. Fashion can conserve nature and our earths valuable species. Conserving nature, is conserving us.

    Black Mamba
    Talk about name recognition!  Everyone has heard of the black mamba, and many of our customers love telling their friends, family and co-workers they have a black mamba on their cell phone!  The textile has a pleasant, earthy brown color contrasted on a much lighter background.  The scales are large and eye-catching, even from a distance. The black mamba (Dendroaspis polylepis) is the largest venomous snake in Africa, and second only in the world to the King Cobra.  In the wild, this lovely, slender serpent may grow to up to ten feet, but has reached lengths of up to twelve feet in captivity.  Despite its name, the black mamba, isn't black;  they are actually a lovely smokey gray.  The common name refers to the coal-black color of the inside of their mouth, which they display as a warning to their predators to avoid having to bite.

    100 pace viper
    The 100 pace viper (Deinagkistrodon acutus) is an unfortunate common name given for the erroneous belief that, if bitten, a person will walk 100 paces, and die.  This small, Asian viper is the only member of its genus, and has about a million common names including sharp nosed viper, Chinese moccasin, five pacer, fifty pacer, and snorkel viper.  It lives in the forested mountain slopes of China, Vietnam and Laos, and is sometimes found around human habitation where it feeds on abundant rodents. The 100 pacer is venomous, and bites can have serious consequences if left untreated, but the moniker "100 pacer" is a huge exaggeration.  The venom of this beautiful snake is being researched as a possible way to treat clots that cause heart attack.  A portion of your purchase will go to a non-profit such as the Kentucky Reptile Zoo who extracts the venom of these snakes to make the research possible!

    Gaboon Viper
    The beautiful and intricate pattern that makes the Gaboon Viper shed so desirable serves a purpose to its ecosystem. This viper's pattern and colors provide excellent camouflage. It will remain motionless, in ambush, waiting for prey in the rain-forests and savannas of Sub-Saharan Africa. Much like many snake species around the world, the Gaboon Viper helps to keep rodent populations in check which is vital to help reduce the often neglected Tick-Borne Illness infections in the region.

    Boomslang
    Once thought to be harmless because it is in the Colubridae family, the venom of the Boomslang was discovered to be highly potent. Herpetologist Karl Schmidt was bitten by a Boomslang in 1957. He did not feel the bite from the juvenile individual would prove fatal. Before his death from the bite, he took detailed notes of his symptoms, providing useful documentation on the potency potential of rear-fanged snakes. This African native will puff its neck if it is cornered, or feels threatened.

    East African Green Mamba
    GREEN SAVING GREEN: Each year in the U.S., 5.1 million individuals are diagnosed with heart failure. The national cost for this disease is estimated at 32 billion annually. Help is coming in the form of a brilliant green snake known as the East African Green Mamba. A peptide isolated from the venom of this beautiful animal, known as Dendroaspis natriuretic peptide (DNP), is fused with human C-type natriuretic peptides (CNP) to create an outpatient therapy drug known as Cenderitide (CD-NP). The potential to save the health care system billions of dollars is possible by providing several therapeutic benefits to heart failure patients, reducing the number of hospital visits. Phase II clinical trials treating Heart Failure with Cenderitide are currently underway.

    Collett's Snake
    This incredible shed will wear on your phone with grace and dignity while offering a one-of-a-kind beauty that only you will command. The Downs Tiger textile has smaller, more elongated scales with an earthy brown coloration, which contrasts nicely with a lighter, creamy white background.  This snake is relatively rare in captive collections, so you will own one of very few shed textiles made from this species. The Downs Tiger snake (Pseudechis colletti) also known as the Collett's snake, is a medium sized relative of the cobra from Australia.  These snakes are diurnal, and hunt amphibians, invasive rodents, and small native mammals.  This snake was named for the Norwegian zoologist Robert Collett. The venom from the Downs Tiger is being used in current pharmaceutical research to fight active cancerous tumor cells.

    Argentine Boa
    Boa constrictor occidentalis) is a large constrictor, growing from six to ten feet in length.  It lives in the rain forests of Argentina, but due to widespread deforestation, this snake is in great peril in the wild.  CITES lists this species as Appendix I, which names animals considered threatened with extinction.  There have been scattered reports in recent years that these majestic snakes may already be extinct in the wild.  Our textile is made from SHED skins of captive animals which are used as education animals in zoos, nature centers and private collections.  These captive breeders may be the key to the future of this species in the wild, and a portion of your purchase will go to help them maintain this captive population.

    Black Necked Spitting Cobra
    When we first looked at the sheds from this species, we were amazed at how dark they were.  This is, hands down, the most dark pigment we have seen in a shed.  The belly was so black, we decided to try something a little different with it.  Belly side up, you get a sample of the huge scales known as ventral scales, as well as some of the more typical side and back scales.  Glossy, lovely, amazing textile! The blackneck spitting cobra (Naja nigricollis) is native to Sub-Saharan Africa, where it hunts rodents in dry savannah grasslands.  In areas where humans have transformed their habitats into agriculture, they have proven very adaptable, and their wild populations seem to be very stable.  They are called "spitting cobras," because in addition to being able to inject venom through biting, their fangs have front-facing holes, which allow them to literally spray a stream of venom at an enemy's eyes.  This defensive measure helps the cobra escape predation. Venom from this lovely cobra is being studied for possible use in treating cancerous tumors.  A portion of your purchase will go to support a non-profit such as Kentucky Reptile Zoo who extracts their venom and makes such research possible!
