So far we knew about coats and fur hats made in hairs of coypu. However, not many people knew that the tail of this small-sized rodent that weights from 5 to 10kg, native to South America, could also be used to make watchstraps! Indeed, if this short animal has a body from 40 to 60cms length, and an appendix which varies from 25 to 40cms.

The tail leather of this beaver cousin looks like the lizard skin. However, its fat and matt texture allows a bigger versatility of use than the one of the reptile with four feet. The coypu, introduced in Europe in 19th century, is classified among pests today in several countries, in particular in France*. So, for once, no mood, please yourselves with a wristwatch in coypu tail. *For example, in 2002, the departments of Ain and Saône-et-Loire had priced the coypu tail.
