If you want to spread something wild on your floor without upsetting the animal activists in your midst, consider this monster skin rug from Longoland.

Available in either white or grey, these rugs are handmade from woven wool, felt and polymer clay.

If the price tag of $1,200 doesn't scare you, then the monster skin rug would be a cool alternative to bear or kangaroo skin rugs that won't have PETA pelting down your door.

Implications - Due to the overwhelming negative response to animal cruelty products, consumers are demanding more products that shy away from using animal byproducts. Buyers are creating a sort of market for animal lovers by still providing the luxurious look of skins, yet opting for faux furs.
