Makes me wonder if you'll actually get the product? Sometimes transactions over seas can be a bad idea...but who knows. At the same time, it makes me a bit sad that anyone can buy a zebra, or something like an eagle which i believe i saw. You just have to think about how many non qualified ppl some of these animals might end up with

IMO

I dont think there is anyway you can get those animals in the US or even though im not sure, canada for that kinda money.

It may be just a joke, or somebody trying to rip somebody off....

mambas

I just emailed the site and inquired about purchasing 2 green mambas( I live in Canada). I obviously don't want to purchase them, I was just interested in what their reply will be.
I'll let you know what they say.

Thanks:-),

that'd be interesting to have a gazelle running around the house while the eagle takes off at the sun rise.

Look at the prices on those bad boys!!! 45$ for a gaboon, 100$ for a black mamba, 8$ for a frischer chameleon, and no more than 35$ for all the other very rare species!! 3$ for spiders and 2 for scorps, crazy!!! Sounds too good to be true to me....

I bet dealing directly with them being an exporter the paper work would be 10x the cost of the animal. Personally id love some of thoses chams but lol too many q's

In most cases, importers/exporters will only deal with businesses, and in some cases, private individuals placing orders over a set minimum.

it sounds like all of these would be wild caught or in bad condition cause just by looking at that picture of the flamingos they're all outside with a dirt floor

Too bad...

I was hoping they had capybaras on their price list. Oh well, my pair of green anacondas will have to be satisfied with rabbits for now!!!

I definitely think there should be restrictions to what can and can't be legally acquired in the private individual sector.

Some jack *** will buy an exotic animal, not take care of it, eats the neighbors dog, blah blah blah.
