Websites about uncommon and unusual pets. The term "exotic pet" has several meanings:
- an animal that cannot be owned without a permit
- an endangered species that cannot be legally owned
- a non-domesticated animal that cannot be truly tamed
- an uncommon pet that does not fall under any of the criteria above
When considering an exotic pet, it is very important to find out about the legality of owning the animal, its specific care-taking needs, the availability of veterinary care in your area, and the changing behavior and needs of the animal as it matures.
