Lazy L Exotics


Lazy L Exotics is a family-owned ranch which has been in operation since 1988.  We raise Red Deer, Fallow Deer, Pere David Deer, Ibex, Aoudads, Buffalo (white), Nilgai, Addax, Blackbuck Antelope, Rhea, Emu, Ostrich, Ringtailed Lemurs, Kangaroos, Wallabies, Muntjac, Patagonian Cavies, Camels, Zebras, Miniature Donkeys, Llamas, African Crested Porcupines, Pgymy Goats, and Four Horn Sheep. However, we deal in all species of alternative livestock.  We buy, sell, and trade animals everyday. 

We are a USDA licensed facility located in Cape Girardeau, Missouri (off I-55 halfway between St. Louis and Memphis).  We also offer capture and transportation services at your facility as well.  Animal Rental is another part of our business.  We have provided animals for movies such as Ace Ventura When Nature Calls and commercials including Froot Loops and Schweppes, and more. 

The animals we raise are also used for display at Lazy L Safari Park which is a walk-thru zoo we opened in 2010.  We also provide Camel Rides for fairs or special events and we have camels, donkeys, and sheep available to add that special touch to your church Nativity Scene display.
