About Us:

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

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.

Our 126 acre educational park offers field trips, private tours, open to the public Saturdays and Sundays and rental for events large and small! A Safari Tram, barrel train rides & outdoor dining areas help make Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch your next wild adventure!

​Open to the Public Days are every Saturday and Sunday as long as the weather permits. All other events require an advanced reservation. Please browse our Visiting Section (located on the menu above) for information on how to book a private tour, field trip or party.

Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch sits on 126 breathtaking acres near Lake Ray Roberts in Denton County, Texas. ​

Sharkarosa is a work in progress. At any one time, it houses roughly 130 animals with an additional 20-30 animals at other facilities on breeder loan. We are not, by design, a rescue organization. We do and can, however, assist with exotic animal rescues, both short and long term, either by lending experience, needed supplies, or housing. We do not take in domestic animals (dogs, cats, etc), pet shop animals (hamsters, hedgehogs, etc.), reptiles, amphibians or birds of any kind. Please contact your local humane society or specialty rescue group for assistance with these types of animals. Ongoing projects include new habitats, habitat expansions, building expansions and endangered and rare species breeding programs. We are a 501(c)(3) non profit facility, so all donations are tax deductible and go directly back into our programs, projects and care of the animals.
