Yes. An aardwolf is the next serious mammal I'll be getting. It's the primary reason why I've been holding off on getting anymore foxes. May get some smaller things to exhibit in the meantime, but nothing too pricey.

I am thinking about getting a single female to start off, unless they've come down in price. I would like to have a female established first before introducing a male anyway since that's what AZA zoos recommend in their care manuals. Supposedly it's best to introduce the male when the female is in heat.

The idea of getting one aardwolf first is a lot less overwhelming and actually seems doable. The enclosure will be built first and will be a big hurdle. I would like to begin construction on the enclosure during the summertime.

That's so cool! If I ever got the money to open a zoo, an Aardwolf would be at the top of my list. They are so unique in their coloration.

I heard that you're getting yours from ken, but I thought he closed shop. Are you going to import her yourself?

Ken stopped being a broker, so yeah, I can't get them from him anymore.

I may import myself (though if I don't cross all my "t's" or dot my "i's" I could get labelled as a smuggler, and that's kind of daunting...). So for my first I'm probably going to hire an importer to do all the paperwork and be the middleman.

I've found some places in Africa that would legally be able to catch and ship aardwolves. Might even have cb ones too since they breed quite a few species. There's no point contacting them to see their pricing since I don't even have an enclosure yet though. Don't want to waste their time. But once I've got an enclosure I will.

Really? Who do you plan on buying from? I haven't heard of many african suppliers of animals,( other than herps, of course) that really advertise themselves.

They could be useful for me in the future icon-smile

I have the contacts saved on my other computer, which I need a new cord for and haven't gotten yet to retrieve all the info. A few others have asked about it too, so may go ahead and see what I can do to pull up the info.

How's it going, Ash?

I'm starting to like Aardwolves more, as a better alternative to the striped hyena.
So I think you already have more than one future buyer here. ;)
My main interest is in parrots, dogs, toothed whales and snakes.
Future animals I want to have when we have land are camels, wolfdogs/wolves, coyotes or jackals, striped hyena or aardwolf. Also poultry, rabbits water buffalo and/or yak for livestock.

Thanks for asking. :) I'm putting in for my permits by Valentine's Day. That's the date I've set for myself. So once I get the permits, it will be much easier from there. I also found some good aardwolf dietary info which I'm excited about.

Have you seen that Park Exotics in the UK has Aardwolves?

I can't either. I had some health issues pop up that took about 6 months to deal with, so I feel like that set me behind.

No, I missed that! That's exciting. :) I wonder if they breed, or if they have an animal supplier. For some reason importing from the UK sounds easier than importing from Africa. Thank you for that. :)

Ash,

I give you a lot of credit with your animals and future animals.
too many can be a real handful. a while back, I had too many animals. yep, they kept me hopping, plus I was working full time..

However, your setups are always very nice, and makes cleaning easier.
trying to give animals quality time is not always easy for me.

Are Ardwolf legal in your area? I assume they are. I know you always check out to make sure.

They're illegal in the state, so I would need to get a variance from the state for them. But I can't go for the variance until AFTER I have an enclosure built. It's really the enclosure that's holding everything up. It'll be expensive, and a pain to build.

Thank you for your kind words, Pat.
