If you're in the mood to walk on the wild side. Take a look at what's for sale outside of Prague, Oklahoma.

Bears, tigers, zebras, camels and some animals you may have never heard of before show up on this auction block. Organizers say buyers from as far away as Mexico attend the exotic animal auction.

It's held once or twice a month and some of these animals sell for hundreds of dollars. Rodger Ensign: "there are a lot of people in the state of Oklahoma that have about five to ten acres. Don't want just cow or horse, they end up doing this kind of thing.''

Ensign says this auction is the only one of its kind in Oklahoma. There's another like it in Huntsville, Texas.
