Castleberry Safari's Exotic Pets

Here’s a Quick Note About The Breeder…

clyde_and_janiceThe owners of Castleberry Safari Ltd., which is a part of Triple C Ranch Inc., are Clyde and Janice Castleberry. Both are experienced when it comes to animals since they have quite a long history in the animal industry. They were brought up on a ranch in Central Texas so they grew up working with and showing animals like sheep and cattle. From the late 1970’s all the way to the early 1990’s, they imported and raised Simmental cattle, and have conducted many Simmental Cattle Auctions throughout Texas. They have even exported Simmental Bulls to Mexico in the 1980’s and 1990’s.

Around 1985 they began to keep exotic animals like llamas, emus, ostriches, cassowaries, and rheas ontheir ranch. You could almost say they lived in a zoo!

Janice especially, is very attached to her animals which she affectionately calls her “babies.” There arevery few exotic animal breeders that literally make the babies their “own” before selling them, but Janice is definitely one of them. In fact, there have been more than a few of her “babies” that she got “too” attached to and kept them. They are now a part of her household. Therefore, any pet that you buy from Castleberry Safari will have been loved on “bunches” and be totally ready to be your pet.

Fun Facts About The Coatimundi (Coati)

coati-1We have coatimundis for sale because they are such exciting, amazing and lovable creatures! They are animals with “personality” and make great pets once they are neutered. Lovable, kind, and affectionate, they will eat up any attention that you give them! Any coatimundis for sale at Castleberry Safari are usually born in the early spring time or the late summer time and are pulled from their mothers when they are about three weeks old. All the coatimundis are bottled fed by hand.

Coatis are also called the hog-nosed coon, Brazilian Aardvark, and snookum bear. If you get a coatimundi, remember that they like putting their noses in things like candles, perfume, and soap just so they can put it on their tail. Their snout is very flexible – enough to be pulled in any direction so you can have fun with it and make faces with it. You can amaze your friends with that face… literally!

When our Coatis are ready to go to your home as pets, they are usually at a stage of being very energetic and will like being with you all the time so you should remember that. They will follow you everywhere. Coatimundi babies can start eating normal food by the time they are three months old and can drop the bottle by the time they are half a year old. Here is a little “fun fact” for you: coatis will keep taking the bottle as long as you keep offering it them. Coatis get comfortable around everyone and like being with other pets. However, a word of caution here. Be careful about leaving your coatimundi with smaller animals, especially birds, as coatis instinctively tend to look at them as food.
