Texas Disposal Systems (TDS) CEO Bobby Gregory enjoys showing off his exotic game ranch to guests. It's part of TDS' 1,750-acre headquarters facility.
Guests at the TDS facility get to interact with giraffes and other animals much more closely than at a zoo.
There are up to 3,000 animals at the TDS ranch, including these lemurs.
The ranch features several species of monkeys, more than willing to play with guests.
The TDS game ranch includes more than 100 species of animals.

The TDS facility also features warthogs.
