That’s probably not the best reason for adopting an exotic pet. Snakes, lizards, and arachnids don’t require the constant care and attention that some pets do, but they need clean cages and careful handling. Some species shouldn’t be handled at all, while others tolerate but don’t require it. They do, however, require a proper and complete diet and clean, fresh water. Many exotic pets also have specific care needs, such as heated surfaces or certain types of lighting. Without them, the animals can quickly die.
Or, look into breed rescue (see Chapter 3). Shelters usually have special rooms where you can take the pet out of its kennel, spend some one-on-one time, and have a great opportunity to get a closer look for signs of good health and pleasant and appropriate pet temperament (for more on assessing the health and temperament of individual pets, see Parts II through VI of this book on the different types of animals). These special rooms also give you a chance to interact with the pet to see whether you think it’s the kind that you’d like to live with.
