Exotic Pets

Friday, July 25, 2008Exotic Pets

Snakes. Insects. Rats. You might think it's a list of reasons to call the exterminator, but for some, these crawly creatures are man's best friend. Exotic pets - usually classified as anything besides cats and dogs - bring their own challenges and rewards to the lives of their keepers. While a chinchilla, an iguana, or a parrot might be fun to live with, who do you call if it gets sick? How can you make sure you're taking good care of an unusual pet – and whether it's even legal to have in your home. Tune in this Friday when we learn more about life with exotic and unusual pets.
