    Here is a series of us picking up Alfa from the zoo (May 27, 2012), they indicated he was well over 600+ pounds.

    Oops, Sampson was the one on the far left!

    Sampson!

    Sampson is our smallest male. What we know of his history is that he was imported into the US many years ago and was slotted for a animal petting zoo. The finances fell short and he was then sold to a fish and game officer located in the central Florida area. Due to a divorce, he and another female was offered for sale, and we purchased both. He is our least productive male.
