Land Hermit Crabs have grown in popularity as pets, and will provide many years of enjoyment if they are given proper care and an appropriate habitat. They are quite sociable and unlike some of the other animals on the list, they are not prone to “wild” odors. More experienced hobbyists often breed their animals as a commercial venture or indeed as a conservation effort to minimise animals being taken from the wild for the pet trade or to maintain viable captive populations of threatened species.
58% of owners of clinically affected BOAS dogs reported their dogs have no breathing problem, so owner perception and believing that struggling to breathe is ‘normal’ for their breed is a big issue. However, both should be weighed equally and only then a decision should be taken to keep a wild animal as a pet.
With that said, you should consider purchasing a pair of Sugar Gliders if you plan on having them as pets. Find useful information about pet animals and all that you need to know about pet adoption and care, in these articles on Animals and Pets. Then you’re going to need to find an exotic pet veterinarian in your area who sees ferrets, as your ferrets will need check-ups and vaccinations like all other pets.
Unfortunately there are bad owners out there and the same goes for owners of cats and dogs. Animals may lack clinical signs for long periods with the incubation phase lasting up to 8 weeks, so testing during this period can turn up false negative results for this reason.
But more and more people aren’t satisfied with just a traditional pet like a cat or a dog. 1. EXOTIC PETS ARE SO DIFFERENT FROM CATS AND DOGS THAT OWNING ONE CAN BE AN INCREDIBLE LEARNING EXPERIENCE. Ferrets are exotic pets, so even though you see them in the pet store next to the gerbils and across from the Betta fish, don’t get the wrong idea; these are not cheap pets.
