There are plenty of exotic pets that are legal to own, but does more unusual also mean more maintenance?

Bearded Dragon Lizards

These are arguably one of the gentlest reptiles. They have great temperaments and once habitats are established, they are one of the easier reptiles to maintain.


These lightweight and fragile marsupials make great house pets. The best part about chinchillas is that they hardly make any sounds!


The most important part about keeping a skunk as a pet it ensuring that it gets de-scented. Like ferrets, they are playful and should have time to exercise outside of their cage.

Guinea Pigs

These furry little friends coo with delight when receiving their favorite treats!  They also enjoy social interactions with their owners.


These curious little bandits will store found items throughout your home!  They enjoy group housing where they live happily with their ferret brothers and sisters!
