Official Description

Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch is a 501(c)(3) non-profit ranch licensed and regulated by the USDA. 

How many times have you spent a small fortune to take your family to a large zoo for the day, only to find all the animals hiding in the back of their exhibits, too far away for you to see them, let alone experience them? Our mission is to provide the North Texas community with the opportunity to experience rare and endangered exotic wildlife in a unique and personal setting. What better way to learn about conservation than by seeing it up close and hands on?
