Frequently Questions

Below are frequently asked questions, you may find the answer for yourself

Our primary goal is to maintain healthy, captive environments for our animal that facilitate and encourage successful breeding and health.


Picking up animals/ Visiting the Ranch

We offer pickup at our facility in Houston , Texas for any of our babies. I encourage pickups if possible to learn about your new animal in person.  We are not open to the public for general visits, tours or private interactions with any of our animals. All visits and pickups at the ranch are by appointment and are for purchasing or pickup only.

We understand you may be making a sizeable and lifelong investment in one of our animals, which is why I encourage pickup if and when possible. However, visits to interact with a particular species to test compatibility is not offered. Our animals are in a natural, breeding environments with special relationships with us and our keepers.

About delivery/sending…

I am often asked how our pet are transported? In 99% of the buyer arrives / he arrives or courier. We met and accompanied with a pet. We make the necessary travel documents, pass the vet. control. If the pet flies, register it on the flight. All of our customers are coming / arriving were very pleased, because they do not have to do anything, just fly, everything else we do ourselves! We have 75% of the pet are exported, so a lot of practice to send the pet abroad. We have the possibility of delivering cargo to many countries of the world or by courier.

The kittens are completely domesticated, litter box trained and put from a bottle to meat, fish, poultry.
