Thanks to WUS I was made aware of few exotic skins being used for bands.

In addition to calf skin, alligator, crocodile, lizard and ostrich, I learned of stingray and shark recently.

What other exotic skins/leathers am I missing?

Photo if possible.

The most extensive list I've seen on any one site:
the online workshop of abp straps, bands, watchbands and watchstraps

BTW: I wouldn't count bison as exotic; it's a step up from cow, but that's all. It's raised now on a decent scale, for meat and hide; ground buffalo has been available at my local chain supermarket for quite a few years.

Frog (toad actually):

I have seen Salmon (fish skin/leather) watchstraps. A fish leather watch strap seems like logical choice for a dive watch.

I think a Kangaroo leather strap braided like an Australian stock whip would be really cool.

Braiding in a watch strap? Not my cup of tea.
