I've only had 1 exotic animal. Though most exotic animals are high-maintenance I wouldn't mind having another, I love them.
Then again I already have 1 dog, though I do not take care of her myself, and having another pet right at this moment wouldn't be the best choice (for reasons I'd rather keep to myself).
If I were to get another exotic pet it would probably be in the reptile family. The reason being is because the exotic animal I used to have was a blue tongued skink. Now I know a lot of people hate snakes, lizards, etc., but a lot of people also love them which leads me to having some, even though my mom is terrified of them. <--
Now I'd probably get small animals no big ones like pythons or anything.
Pic of blue tongue skink.. I don't have any old photos of my old one so I just googled it, just so you guys who have no idea what it is or looks like can see. I probably will be getting it again:
Check it out if you want.. If your afraid of snakes or lizards I suggest not to .
Lol I wouldn't say I'm cruel but I actually don't mind feeding them live animals. I used to feed mine crickets..
