Exotic animals are not pets

THE increasing number of exotic animals being brought into the country to be treated as pets is a matter of grave concern. These animals are often obtained by people with insufficient knowledge, resources or commitment to look after them properly.

Chinchillas, sugar gliders, iguanas, tortoises and turtles, various primates, birds, snakes, sun bears and leopard cats are some of the exotic animals that are being treated as pets in Malaysia of late.
