Exotic and Unusual Pets

monkeysTo give an exact definition of what is considered to be an ‘exotic pet’ is rather impossible, because it will all depend on who you ask and what parameters they have set. Some animal lovers will say that any household animal not indigenous to the owner’s region qualifies as an exotic pet, while others think there is more to it, and the animal kept for companionship and enjoyment also has to classify as relatively rare and unusual. Furthermore, “exotic” could also mean any creature that is considered to be “strikingly bizarre” even in its own natural environment, and has a rather exclusive body frame, colour, or extraordinary behavioral features.
