As hobby breeders we hope to share our love and passion for wildlife by providing captive bred and hand selected wildlife.

Why buy captive breed wildlife? To save your wallet and the environment. Captive breed wildlife takes the demand out of collecting animals from the wild for the pet trade. In addition, captive breed wildlife minimizes internal parasitic and viral infections that often kill animals within the first year of captivity.

Our dedication to excellence begins with the hand selection of live stock from some of the top breeders in the nation. We strive to provide quality animals that are perfect for family pets or stunning terrarium specimen. We utilize our individual backgrounds in engineering, education, and zookeeping to provide you the best animal and information on the net.
