Top 20 Exotic Pets That No One Should Keep

If you’re considering getting an uncommon pet, consider that most rarities require special attention, diets, and care. Housing and veterinary fees can be prohibitively expensive, so do your homework before purchasing one.

Wild animals should never be removed from their natural habitat and confined. An animal’s wild instincts will never go away, even if purchased at a young age. Domestication can make them unpredictable and challenging to control.

People often do not prosper when removed from their natural habitats so how can animals? Unfortunately, many people who buy exotic pets illegally discover they can’t care for them and then abandon the animals after suffering the consequences.

Here are the top 20 rare and exotic animals that should not be held captive as pets. Remember that just because an animal is cute doesn’t mean it will be friendly or suitable for domestication.
