Tip of the Week: One of the commonest type of animal cruelty is the abandonment of dogs. As pet owners fail to understand and control the habits of their canines once they go around chewing sneakers and furniture, barking, urinating within the incorrect places, and so forth, they ‘hand over hope’ and abandon them.
I’m not sure what you imply by the colored pellets. If you’re referring to the bags which have seeds and nuts and corn, and many others, that’s not a good suggestion to feed these to your guinea pig. Have you tried the Oxbow model? It’s really flavorful and smells good in comparison with among the different brands like kaytee, and so on. They carry it at my vet’s office in addition to PetSmart and one among our guinea pigs will not eat any other pellets but that kind. So I’d say try a couple of different brands of the plain pellets and see in case your piggie takes to one in every of them.
HR455 specifically states that it solely addresses public security, and it’s irrefutable that not all the species it will prohibit are any sort of public security threat. Of course, this concept is moderately arbitrary, however in comparison with cats and canine, within the worst case scenario, some members of Canidae, like fennec foxes, are equivalent in ‘danger’ to small cats and canines.
The tarsier is an animal with comically gigantic eyes. Amusing videos of the creatures, that are Asian primates (not monkeys), might be found on YouTube with high view counts. Their small measurement and sheer uniqueness could make them appear to be cool pets, and so they very properly may be (for advanced keepers as they are primates, although not as clever as monkeys and apes.) However most of us won’t ever know. Some of the sub-species are critically endangered and they’re closely protected.
Keeping exotic animals is not proper regardless of how you attempt to justify it to yourself. Just because you want to do something (and may) does not all the time mean you need to. I just have to look at people posting photographs of cute exotic animals and then see the ‘Oooh..how cute I need one, the place did you get it’ comments to know that it’s incorrect and some of these animals are going to be neglected and abused. I agree along with your level that it ought to be regulated however I can be happy to see a whole ban. I cannot think about what might be lacking in your life that you would specifically have to have an unique pet. It simply seems selfish to me.
