Buy a regular Kippah and give the rest to Tzeddaka. This type of Kippah is like Cowboy Hats and Hemmorhoids in NYC: Only A-Holes get them.

zionist forever   (09.11.17)
Python, alligator, cow, ostrich non of these animals are endangered species and are farmed for the purpose of being skinned or eaten or culled to keep their numbers down in the wild and their skins sold afterwards.
I have an ostrich skin walled and I love it really nice design but this was not taken from the wild.

If we were talking about a kippa made from rhino or tiger skin then no these are endangered species and not bred in captivity but animals like that I have no problem.
