It is pretty fascinating stuff, especially when it's shaped like spikes or some other recognizable bit. I think if I had a microscope, I'd probably keep it around a little while to look at, but I don't so it all goes in the bin or vacuum at my house.

Yep, have a piece of back skin shed. It is a nice chunk that still shows that beardie pattern and it has held up well in a drawer. Next time she sheds her back I will try pressing it, then frame it.

I've seen bearded dragon's that had presumeably been killed ( in a cottage industries run by local aboriginals (who I was told send the little kiddies out to catch them), which were killed and then skinned and their skins put on foam bearded dragon shaped bodies .
I was told the families eat the dragon meat, and the skins are just a byproduct. They regard the dragons as traditional bush tucker and are legally permitted to catch and kill them on their reserves.

Last time I saw these nasty little souvenirs as well as croc skins (sold as belts, shoes, handbags, etc) , this was way back in 2000 when we were doing a 4x4 driving safari that involved circumnavigating the country (Australia) by mostly staying near the coast , saw them for sale in souvenir shops in Darwin, Cairns, Broome, Perth, and few other places frequented by international tourists. They were literally flying off the shelves every time a coach load of tourists showed up.
