The endangered species list has Puma AKA Florida Panther this is NOT a florida panther claw. Do NOT use fingernail polish on authentic claws. All my claws come clean polished and sealed in a protective professional finish. Finger nail polish looks nice at first but will peel off making your claws look like they too are pealing. I seal these claws to help them last a lifetime otherwise a claw can break or come off of the knuckle bone. My claws will not do that to you. This choker one small front cougar claw attached to it not a fake or resin it has been clear coated in a protective finish helping the claw to last a lifetime! Remember a cougar or mountain lion is made by creator just as you and I. We are not perfect neither are products that are made naturally. If you have a perfect buy plastic, but keep in mind there is no power in plastic as it is made by man and is unnatural. mountain lion reminds us to seek out new paths and not be afraid to make out own way but be silent and do not boast of our success.

Red the color of the ancestors and war black for the spirits white for purity Measurements are: Cougar claw: 1 5/8" a little shy of 2" Buckskin ties approx 9.5" long Choker itself :10" Total length Approx 29" Chokers were originally designed for the purpose of protecting the necks of the Native American warriors during battle and they were also used to adorn themselves during specific tribal ceremonies. Chokers were also worn to show a high social ranking among the tribes, and as a sign of wealth. Sometimes these chokers would also be attached to a full breastplate for the warriors who fought to protect their territories. In society today choker necklaces are extremely popular among younger generations. Buyer is responsible for making sure it is legal to purchase this item in their state.
