Ten Animals That Should not Be Kept As Pets But Are Anyway.
Whenever you bring home a new exotic pet, whether or not they are old or young, from a identified breeder or the street, constantly take your exotic pet for an initial veterinary check out. Monkeys of any shape or size do not make very good pets, and by taking them on as pets you are dooming them to a life that is far from excellent for them, and one particular which will most likely result in a great deal of mental anguish for them, if not permanent mental (and fairly possibly physical) damage.
I am not confident if this is generating sense, but my point is that I would not want to create about the factors that someone should or must not wish to acquire a Tokay Gecko, but I can appropriately write about the factors that Leopard Geckos make great pets and the risks related with ownership (such as using the wrong substrate in their enclosures).

These physicians are a member of a number of organizations committed to the care of exotic pets ( Association of Avian Veterinarians (AAV) , Association of Reptilian & Amphibian Veterinarians (ARAV) , and Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians (AEMV) ). These memberships and the continuing education by way of these organizations enables them to be informed on new medical and surgical methods for exotic pets as they become obtainable.
