Owning an exotic pet entails certain risks and expenses and also requires ample time and knowledge and in many cases, applicable permits. However, many exotic pets are incapable of returning to their natural habitats as a consequence of spending their formative years in captivity. Some of these animals find themselves in exotic animal rescues, waiting for responsible adoptive homes. If you are considering exotic pet ownership, consider contacting a rescue, and make sure you have the knowledge, skill, time, and financial assets to care for the animal. That stated, some species of exotic animals, such as lions, primates, tigers, etc., should never be kept as privately-owned pets.
