If you're a fan of super quirky fashion, this real armadillo purse might be just what you need for your fashion collection. This unusual animal purse is actually made from a real armadillo body that has been contorted into the shape of a hand bag.

This reptilian tote takes an armadillo's scaly shell-like body and wraps the creature's arms and legs to form the straps and handle of the bag. The oval shape of the bag comes from the armadillo's round body. The armadillo's head -- right down to the eyeballs -- remains fully intact. Every time you reach inside this handbag to grab something, you'll be reaching directly into the armadillo's belly.

You can pick one of these armadillo purses up on eBay for roughly $300 if you're interested. Stats for Authentic Reptilian Clutches Trending: This Quarter & Popular
