Has anyone done business with them? Do they send you to the breeder and then get a cut out of it, or do they take your money and hold the animal at their place for you to pick up? What interested me was that their prices seem really cheap. A pair of young giraffes for $37,000 seems way to cheap.http://www.texaswildlifeservices.com/Breeder%20&%20Stocker%20Animals%20for%20Sale.htm Thanks,

I would be very suspicious at this point. I see that they have Elands listed for sale, and the last time I checked, those were endangered.

looks legite to me. They are clearly brokers. In Texas exotic hoofstock is very real business,mostly in the trophy hunting ring. Endangered animals are legal to sell with some stipulations. For instance many macaw species are endangered but traded freely.
They sell actual items related to hoofstock as well. It seems the real bread and butter of this company is trophy whitetail hunts, and captive whitetail equiptment. Seems the brokering of stock is a side thing.

yea. Ithought they looked good, but their prices are so cheap. I figure they search all the gamefarms and try to find the cheapest ones. Why are the Chapman's zebras so much cheaper than the Grant's?

I a not sure why. May be something to ask the web pages owner.

I am guessing that it has more to do with the value as a trophy. Grants have bigger stripes and are more desired by trophy hunters.

I am thinking about getting some Zebras, waterbuffalo, fallow deer, greater kudu, two addaxes, and two gemsbock or scimitar horned oryx from them. It would be over the next three years
