Keeping and Selling Python Skins

Picture of Leather Products

Registered Florida Python Challenge™ 2020 Python Bowl participants who wish to keep the skin of a harvested Burmese python should indicate this preference by checking the appropriate box on the data sheet turned in with the snake at a designated check-station location. When possible, these skins will be made available to the participant after the snake is measured for official entry.

While not every Burmese python skin is marketable some companies may be able to tan your Burmese python skin and return it to you or may purchase the skin from you. The following vendors have asked that we provide their information.
