Hi, Are these real coconuts? I need these for a project that I'm working on.
Best Answer: yes these are real coconuts. they are cut in half . I used them to make toys for my macaws and cockatoos.They love them.
Can the coconut half shells can be cut in half instead of lengthwise? Thank you!
Best Answer: Hi, Betty. The shells come already cut in half the way they're already cut in half. I am doubtful that you can order them to be cut in a different way (if that's what you want) because the company selling them isn't likely to be conversing with the individuals who are (hopefully sitting on a nice beach somewhere but I kind of doubt it) cutting them up.
You can cut each half-shell in half again yourself--which will result in 1/4 sized pieces--but you'll have to have a very sharp saw and the appropriate safety tools (goggles, gloves, etc), because the coconuts are REALLY hard. I wasn't cutting mine, but I was drilling holes into them to make bird toys, and until my husband showed me the incredible attributes of a drill press (who knew what that thing on his workbench was?), the coconuts tended to catch the drill and spin violently, break into sharp projectiles, or skitter out from under the drill and fly across the room. Even with a drill press, they often caught onto a drill edge and whirled around dangerously before drilling all the way through. Still, the learning curve was well worth it (because luckily, I didn't put out an eye with my experimentation). Even my largest parrots have chewed on those toys for ages and ages without making a dent in the coconut shells.
Is this price per half or for a pair?
Best Answer: This item is sold as a half.
