I agree

With the right care all animals can be great pets. I own exotics (fish) and I have no trouble. But to own a exotic you gotta know what you are doing and know the risk. Say a man goes out and buys a Ball Python to make a girl like him, That is horrible. he will probably die before she sees the snake. He did not research the care of what the snakes needs. But what if their was this kid that always wanted a python and when he became 21 he moved out of the house and got one and named it Bob. He spent All of his life researching animals need.
But say if that guy lived in South Florida and a hurricane came, He lost his python and his house. But where is that python? Bob is probably out in the swamps eating all the natives. What he could do is move from the storm or go take him to a shelter and he back at the end of the storm.

The Humane Society is talking about catching wild animals and taking them into your home. Yes sometimes I will go out into my local streams and collect fish for my Native biotope tank. These fish are harmless and you gotta feed them there wild diet till they are trained to eat normal fish food.
I do it when the weather is warm and my fish are happy and eating like pigs.

Depends which exotic animal you choose domestic or wild i go for domestic exotic animals because you don't harm nature but instead you help it but also there's zoos to help out.

Yeah but I would never take a threatened species out of the wild. I only collect common species that I know will not not harm the ecosystem.
