As I have already mentioned, I absolutely love snakes as pets. They are a lot of fun. Maybe this is why I still sort of have a soft spot for people who wish to have exotic animals as pets (some varieties of snakes can be exotic, you know!). However, if you are not a cat, dog or a bird person and you think fish are too boring, maybe an exotic animal is just what you need! You just have to make sure that you do your research, so that you get the right animal for you, and so that you do not end up breaking any rules!
There are a number of exotic animals that are not endangered and are perfectly legal to own. If you already know what kind of animal you wish to own, you should check and see if it is illegal for you to purchase one.You should also find out if you can actually have that animal live in your house (we do not want another Ross and Marcel moment, do we?). Once you have done this, you should look up tips on how to maintain the animal, how much it would cost to feed it the right food and whether or not there are any vets who will be able to provide your pet with the care it deserves.
Yes, owning an exotic pet might be slightly more difficult than owning a normal pet, but it is worth every bit!
