Exotic animals as pets?

…many people buy exotic animals to keep as pets out if curiosity. Some of them buy exotic wild animals because they love taking risks or because they want to learn about them.

Some people believe that exotic animals are more beautiful because they are colourful and they have strange appearance.

Some other people though hate exotic animals because as they are not used to them, they are scared of them and they believe they are dangerous

The majority of people though believe that it is cruel to keep them in flats and studios…

Exotic animals as pets?

Exotic animals aren’t that usual to be kept as pets in Greece. Some people though, who kept exotic animals as pets say there are advantages as well as disadvantages.

Exotic animals are unusual and those who keep them as pets feel special and use them to show off.

Those who want to show others how rich they are, buy exotic animals and keep them as pets which is not really fair for the animals.

It is difficult for them, if not impossible, to live in an urban environment, away from their natural habitat, imprisoned in a hostile noisy environment.

Exotic animals as pets?

Nowadays it is really “trendy” for people to have exotic animals as pets. But is it right or not?

First of all, we must say that people who buy exotic animals are usually those who like to live in danger. They may want to prove to others or even to themselves that they are not scared of animals.

Secondly, it is not good for exotic animals, kept as pets, because they could not survive in an urban environment. They are going to become very aggressive. That means that they will be dangerous for people. Apart from that, it will be more like torturing them. They may suffer and get depressed.

Another point is that they are too noisy to live in a flat or in a house in a city. They are not so clean and they may be dangerous for our health. Finally, it is neither easy nor cheap to take care of them.

My opinion is that exotic animals are not suitable pets. It is better to let them live free in their natural habitat.

Exotic animals as pets?

Having an exotic animal as a pet may sound interesting but it is difficult to handle.

Having a wild snake or another exotic animal as a pet may make you more interesting and help you meet people, but it can turn out to be dangerous for you and the people around you. Besides that, it can be really tiring to try to satisfy your pet’s needs, such as food, adequate environment and appropriate heating. You will have to make a research on your pet and spend a lot of time and money on it.

Even though exotic pets are really amazing to have, they can also be dangerous. Who can really guarantee that your lovely python from the Amazon jungle is actually tamed? Can you make your family think the same way and calm them down?

Despite the fact that exotic pets are really exciting, taking one home can be a torture for you and your “pet”. So think twice before you decide to take an exotic animal as your pet.

My parents didn’t want me to have a pet. On my birthday though, I was given a little puppy, which I loved from the very first moment, as a birthday present toy my aunt and my uncle.

Fortunately my parents weren’t at home that day. I am sure, they wouldn’t have let me keep it.

I decided to keep it without telling them. I made a house for it at the basement and every day while my parents were at work I took care of it. I would feed it, take it for walks.

Only my friend Christine and later my brother knew about it. My brother told me how responsible I had to be and what were the things I had to do in order to keep it healthy and happy.

I freaked out when I found out how much it was to take it to the vet. I was desperate. I wouldn’t be able to keep the dog. I couldn’t afford it. So, I told my parents and guess what? They let me keep it and they also gave me enough money to look after it every month.

Now my puppy is one year old. It is called Victor. I have never been happier in my whole life.

Exotic animals as pets?

Most people prefer common animals to keep as pets and not exotic ones. Dogs, cats, birds, hamsters or even lizards are small in size and we can keep them even in our apartment. They are easy to keep and not expensive to feed. They are cute, they make good company and you easily train them.

There are some other people though, who want to show off, be different from everybody else and so they keep exotic animals as pets.

There are some others who think that despite of what most people believe exotic animals aren’t that dangerous. No matter what other people believe, I think that it is impossible for exotic animals to live in an urban environment and it is very cruel to take them away from their natural environment and force them to live in an unnatural way.
