Our suri herd has provided us with a lot of joy and they have taught us a lot. One of the things we have learned is that a suri cria on a sunny day glows like nothing else and makes your heart happy.
It is time for them to go to a new home where they can reach their full potential as the rare and wonderful creatures they are. We have 4 females and 1 male that would like a new home. If they were to go to the same home, that would make us all even happier.
