This title offers guidance and practical advice to parents and children when choosing a more unusual family pet. The term "exotic" traditionally refers to those creatures unfamiliar to the general pet-keeping public, but gradually more and more people are choosing unusual pets, especially since these pets, in many cases, offer low maintenance, low allergy, space-saving alternatives to traditional pets.
