Yup. I made the mistake of ordering the 'monster' size or whatever the XXL was called from Dr.s Foster and Smith.

They were pricey and smallish compared to the advertised measurments.

Dogs showed great interest but I threw them out after a few minutes because I could see Ilda or Smitty biting the end off of one whole, swallowing it and ending up with a GI blockage.

So, having heard good things about them I went online to research and find better quality. Apparently there are different grades and some can be 'dry' and brittle. Elk is better then deer or moose or moose was better then elk and some were too old and what to watch for when buying antlers, naturally shed vs farmed deer.........and none of them cheap.

I'll stick with the super duper sized nylabones.
