It depends on the size and the subject. 8x10s usually start at $500 and they go up from there - the 24" x 36" can go for up to $3000. I'd really like to do something exotic, the cats pay the bills but I find other animals and textures interesting. What do you have in mind? Everything's negotiable
I looked up the mata mata - boy is that weird looking!! But it would be a very cool challenge. And as for skunks, I have a girlfriend who has a skunk that visits her every summer with babies and she feeds them cat food and fruits and vegetables. This year's baby count is five! I've always wanted to draw them but figured it would end up being a picture just for me, lol. Are these your pets or do you have an animal sanctuary?
