Wow, its grain is very nice. I think they are protected and that is the reason why it's that hard to find any watch strap made of pangolin.Green is still in but "Chocolate" which is like a warm tan is the "hot" color this year it seems. For me I am always trying to make the best match for my watch and buck trends .
I have been looking for years for a pangolin strap. I bought one ... the only one I have seen for sale, but it was too short . Very rare.
