Had the exact same concerns. Thanks @Noblekostas for dropping the knowledge.
If you have such questions, Jesper from Shoegazing or Justin Fitzpatrick have far more knowledge on the matter! But that’s the short version. All the endangered species are heavily regulated.

I think the concern with endangered leathers broadly is that proliferation of use may drive up demand beyond what can be sourced ethically and legally.

Raises the question of whether it is better to prohibit the class of conduct weighed against the harm in not allowing it. I don't think there is an answer that is going to satisfy everyone and it will likely always be decisive like if dog leather ever took off.

That said, it is an interesting leather like hippo leather.

Fresh in the mail today. Customized from the TLB Mallorca mainline. Vegano brown leather with brown suede shaft, double leather sole with 360 storm welt and toe taps. It’s not for a blizzard but should work nicely in the dryer cold days.
