An exotic pet is a popular option, but you need to consider certain points before you decide to go in for an exotic pet.
Most pet stores have invertebrates and reptiles sold as exotic pets that are either born in the wild or are bred in captivity.
Animals that are born in the wild and then captured are wild beings which we would do well to remember.
These are not species that have, in any way been domesticated in the way that generations of house cats and dogs have been.
These animals have evolved to view humans as part of their lives and can perhaps exist only with human assistance at some level. Exotic pets on the other hand are not used to humans and are likely not comfortable with them. They are likely to be unpredictable as well which a wild animal is bound to be.
Also consider the fact that an animal captured from the wild or even one that is bred in captivity can have diseases or infestations that you may not know how to deal with or control. So before to go right along and get yourself an exotic pet consider these points.
