I've been trying to get a pair for my zoo but so far the cheapest was around $10,000. which is way over my budget. they would be my dream animal to have.

10,000 :shock: wow, thats WAYYYYYYYY over my price zone lol. They are a great little creature arent they though? Lol... im just doing research right now. I would love some smaller exotic hoofstock species for "lawn ornaments". Something pretty to look at and go out and mess with everyday. I think muntjac would be okay, but i dont know how they would fair here. Our summer is VERY hot right now (unusual, but usualy reaches 80) and our winters can get pretty cold. Looking for something pretty hardy really.

muntjacs would do well. They do great in Ohio, the winters can get below zero, and the summers upper 90 isnt unheard of (was 95 yesterday). I have read that fawns can even be born in the cold and survive well.

Warthogs are very incredible. They are bringing about 15,000 each or 22,500 for a pair. As far as I know there are only six pairs in private hands. All of which originated from an importation Disneys animal Kingdom did a while back. I am currently on the waiting list for a pair from our friends who have two pair that produce litters every year. They are defenetly not an animal for everyone.
