Abstract
Unfortunately only a small proportion of the skins from the many crocodiles caught are sufficiently well prepared to reach the export market. The rest, badly damaged through cuts, bad shape, scale-slip, putrefaction or "red.heat", are a direct loss to the trade. On account of the great demand and very high prices prevailing for good crocodile skins, many hunters have in recent times attempted to make their living by the destruction of crocodiles, without a proper knowledge of the handling and curing of their skins.
