					In light of a trainer's tragic loss of life
from interacting with a supposedly tamed or trained killer whale, it is interesting to
note
  that this is not first, and not even the second, but the third death brought on by this
powerful mammal. Although the trainers realized that this was a ultimately a wild
animal, they trusted the creature sufficiently to be in the tank with him. Although the
killer whale was significantly less of a pet than a family dog or cat, this incident
nonetheless highlights the potential risks of interacting with exotic wildlife.

Numerous people consider exotic animals to be status symbols as well as exciting and
fascinating creatures to have around. For some reason, we are often drawn to these
creatures, frequenting circuses and animal exhibits such as zoos and theme parks. In
addition}, even though zoos can do an amazing job of supplying a safe
 haven for what are ultimately wild animals, they can still make kids and adults want
an exotic animal as a family pet.

When comparing domestic animals to exotic ones that are kept as house pets, you
need to understand that people have been in the process of domesticating cats and
dogs for thousands of years. Puppies and kittens are able to get accustomed to people
from the moment they are born, which assists in helping them adapt to humans. On
the other hand, wild animals may have been living in the wild for years, only to be
yanked out of their natural habitat.

There are an extensive range of exotic animals kept as pets. While some individuals
select to keep tigers, lions, bears, and wolves for their pleasure, even non-human
primates and some reptiles count as exotic pets. Some of these creatures require a
more substantial amount of habitat than you can provide in just your yard. Still others
depend on unique foodstuffs that can't be found in your neighborhood petfood store
. This can result in suffering for the animal.

With this suffering, these wild animals can grow to be agitated and ultimately
dangerous. Some owners decide to place their animals through processes such as
declawing and tooth removal in order to make them much less capable} to cause
injury if they decided to strike. Even so}, this can make an exotic pet even more
agitated and angry.

A lot of men and women do not comprehend the power of these creatures. In truth,
chimpanzees, a common exotic pet, have been approximated to have five (5) times the
arm strength of a man. This can result in deadly
 disasters if they grow to be panicked around a person. In addition to strength, chimps
also have powerful, sharp canine teeth that can rip and tear.

Some people and places work extremely hard to maintain these exotic creatures in as
natural of a habitat as possible, such as zoos and wildlife preserves. Nevertheless,
retaining an wild and exotic animal as a house pet can be extremely dangerous for you
and all the people you love.
