Got a call this morning from a local facility. They were short handed in their nursery so asked me if I wanted to raise a baby mom had abandoned. Of course I said yes and now I'm playing mommy again. Very Happy

aww yay! I know that you were grieving the loss of another loved one. Now you have another baby to watch over and take care of. Which type of animal is it? Smile

Hi Rattissia.

I'm leary to answer that because it might gross you out. I will say it's native to Egypt. It's so ugly it's cute! LOL.
It's not the kind of critter I would raise to sell as a pet even thou hand raised ones stay sweat but it'll make for a great research animal!

Not for experiments but for behavior studies. That's like the bomb for me! Very Happy

Yes the loss of Nami my ringtail was a horrible crush to me. I've been the only one producing ringtails in captivity for the past three or four years. Nami's mate, Willy will be introduced to two females, Lori-Li and Lu-lu but I have to be very careful. Adult males sometimes kill their mates during breeding season so I have to camp out by their enclosure all night for several nights.

A breeder contacted me to let me know two more pairs of ringtails would be coming here the begining of March. I also was told about a week and a half ago that I'm getting some spotted skunks to work with. This species is about the size of a squirrel. Just got my inport permit approved and they'll be here next week.

The grey foxes are getting ready to breed also. One of my males bit my hubby in the foot but he was wearing boots no problem.

We had another sick ringtail cat that came down with an upper respitory infection but we caught it in time. She is laying next to me as I write this...

Sorry for rambling. Spring is around the corner this time of year is my best time. It's like Christmas for me!!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

You are in an interesting line of work, Topper. Do you breed to sell to the public or is it sale to zoos and research facilities? That's really cool! Dogs are the only animal I've ever had. Congrats on the new little critter.

Hi OTB. Very Happy

All of the above with the exception of the research facilities. My next goal is to become certified to work with research facilities depending on project, perferbly propogation studies. This last portion might not ever happen because the process to become certified is very expensive ($3600.00 just for the application and first inspection).

If not I hope to be accepted through ISIS which is considerbly less ($1100.00). Years ago they were very interested in me as a member due the various different species I was working with but I was doing too much at the time to puesue it further. If I can't return to this route I'll return to free lance writting on the species I've been blessed to work with. Very Happy

Actually this was my side business. I moved here to Ok to pursue my passion and to continue what I had started in Maryland. My main professional was that of a drafter/designer in the engineering field but burning the candle at both ends (I averaged 7 hrs sleep a week for years) took a serious toll on my health. I did good work there and I enjoyed it but I never felt I belonged there. Simply put, I am an animal person.

I feel very blessed doing this. I get to do good and I have met and worked with some wonderful people like Wayne Newton (he has one of my babies). Jack Hanna has used some of my animals in his programs as has Jarod Miller (he has a TV program with Disney).

I'll never be famous doing this but it's still exciting to know my animals are making a difference through education programs.

I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I'm way into rambling mode. Please excuse me I haven't slept yet and I'm a bit slap happy. Sleep
Baby made it through the first 24 hours with me so only 36 more before I feel it's out of the danger zone. bounce
