While many are terrified of bats, some people find their little snub noses endearing. However, bringing a bat into your home not only deprives the animal of many benefits of living in the wild (ability to choose the food they eat, space to fly, freedom to reproduce, etc.), as well-known disease carriers, they can pose a danger to humans.
Chimps are brilliant. There is something so alluring about interacting with an animal that can so easily pick up on human mannerisms, emotions and ways of communicating. And then, of course, there are all of those movies where chimps play a colorful and lovable sidekick to a human actor. However, chimps can be extremely dangerous. There are true horror stories of chimps that have behaved, if you will, wildly.
Yes, they may look like giant versions of your cuddly little house cat, but their inflated size also means enormous teeth and claws. Need we say more? We suggest you stick to the smaller version.
Same deal as the big cats. Even though wolves are stunning creatures that look strikingly similar to your beloved dog, wolves are not domesticated and may attack if they feel threatened.
Wolf-dog hybrids can be suitable pets, but this is dependent on many factors. You must do extensive research (including on the legality of these pets in your area) and we highly recommend consulting a veterinarian before taking one into your home, for the sake of you, your family and the animal.
Aside from being illegal in the state of Kansas, the risks are simply not worth it. And we're certain a large, dangerous snake such as a death adder (come on, "death" is right there in the name) would be infinitely happier in the wild than cooped up in a tank.
