    2 million euros is $2,528,770.00!
    If I bought 50 acres, for example, I would divide the land and use 40 acres for six ungulate paddocks. The remaining acres would be for paths, signs, and a cafe and gift shop combo at the end.
    North America would have bison, pronghorn, mule deer, elk, and white-tailed deer (8 acres)
    South America would have alpaca, llama, mara, guanaco, rhea, capybara, giant anteater and Brazilian tapir (9 acres)
    Europe would have chamois, ibex, red deer and fallow deer (4 acres)
    Africa would have Masai giraffe, ostrich, Grevy's zebra, crowned crane, impala, sitatunga and springbok (7 acres)
    Asia would have Eld's deer, hog deer, Reeves' muntjac, blackbuck, nilgai, Indian peafowl, Indian rhino, axis deer, and barasingha deer. (6 acres)
    Australia would have swamp wallabies, wallaroos, Bennett's wallabies, Parma wallabies, emus, red kangaroos, gray kangaroos, and budgies and lorikeets in a netted aviary (6 acres)
