    I know this site at least 4 years. Even I contacted them twice via their website. They answered that they are company that legally export Tanzanian animals, and it is operated by a Russians. I was asking about elephants, giraffes and even gorillas. They answered that elephants, are very problematic because almost none airplane company would accept to transport them. For gorillas it was clear that would be almost impossible to be ever exported from Africa (unless captive born) (although I think there was a recent case of wild gorillas export to Malaysia I think (or China) for millions of dollars).

    I was just telling my wife that I wanted an aardvark for Christmas. Now I can tell her where she can order one.

    I think they will only sell animals to institutions like to zoos, reserves, research centres, commercial pet breeders/importing companies, or circuses ( :mad: - about circuses ), if they can verify the status of the buyer :)

    Amongst invertebrates, they export only beetles and butterflies. One of the beetles is a Mylabris, that as a meloid, it's almost impossible to breed in captivity because the lifle cycle is too complicated (implicating parasitism on fresh eggs of grasshoppers...) They really export alive ones???? Or just dead insects for display in boxes??
