There are few situations that provoke more angst among bird owners than traveling with their beloved pets. We all seem to fret over their comfort and safety, and we’re certain that our birds will be thrown into some sort of shock or frenzy at our eventual destination.

If you’re an animal lover, you may be more than just a little eager to open up your home to some less usual pets than are commonly found in households today. Of course, many creatures have specific care needs regarding living space, diet, and routine care. However, when you’re able to meet their needs, you’ll find that many exotic or unusual pets add an excitingly wild dimension to life in your home.
