“Exotic pet” describes any wild species kept for human pleasure or companionship. Often, exotic pets are kept as pets outside of their native continent.

Some examples of exotic pets kept as pets are sugar gliders, hedgehogs, pythons – even lions and chimpanzees are kept as pets.

Unfortunately, many consumers remain unaware of the origins of exotic pets, how the exotic pet trade affects wild populations, and how to care for exotic pets.
