Exotic pets are animals that are relatively rare or odd to keep, or are often thought of as wild creatures rather than pets. The definition varies by culture, place, and time—as animals become well-established in the world of animal fantasy, they may lose their exotic status. The definition is changing; several rodents, reptiles, and amphibians have established themselves in the world of animal fantasy to the point where they are no longer regarded exotic. Exotic pets might include any unique or unusual-looking animal. "Exotic" usually refers to a species that isn't native or indigenous to the owner's area, whereas "pet" refers to a companion animal that lives with people. Any live monkey, alligator, crocodile, cayman, raccoon, skunk, fox, bear, sea mammal, poisonous snake, feline species other than domestic cat (felis domesticus), canine species other than domestic dog (canis familiaris), or any other animal that would require a higher level of care and control than that required for common household pets sold in pet stores or domestic farm animals is considered an exotic animal. Millions of wild animals are captured from their natural habitats or born into captivity each year for the sole purpose of becoming pets. Our homes are not fit for a wild animal to live in.
