We offer a variety of sizes and grades of beaver skins.  The larger the size, the higher the price.  The better the grade, the higher the price.   

These are tanned skins.  Except for the beaver skins with tails, the beaver skins do not have tails.  If you are trying to make something with the beaver skins (like a blanket or throw or pillows), please keep in mind that the useable size will be smaller than the maximum dimensions.  Please do not hesitate to ask for help with measurements if needed.

Our Gxx codes denote individual pieces. If you would like to order a specific beaver skin, please go to our Gallery to pick the exact one shown. 

Genus and species: Castor canadensis.  Wild.

Beaver are not an endangered species and are not subject to CITES.  They are very common in Canada and parts of the United States.

A USFWS export permit is required for all shipments outside of the U.S.

We do not recommend shipping beaver skins to Germany.  We had a beaver skin shipment returned by German customs in November 2012.
