Q: Are these products really created from genuine kangaroo scrotum (balls)?
A: Yes, they are the fair dinkum real thing, kangaroo scrotum hides (although they are stuffed with plaster to make them hard). They are all Australian grown and made.

A: They are a by-product of kangaroos that have been have been lawfully culled for meat production and/or to control the size of the population. Harvested and processed in accordance with National Parks and Wildlife Service regulations.
Q: Were any kangaroos killed solely to make this product?
A: Absolutely not. Each opener is made from the hide of kangaroos that were culled humanely, according to the strict regulations of the Australian National Parks & Wildlife Service.
