Animals that Dangerous to make Good Pets. There are a number of reasons why, and I’ll tell you in a bit. But before that, let me tell you about a few animals that won’t make good pets, no matter what. From the painfully obvious to one unexpected entry, here are 10 animals that don’t make good pets.
1. Venomous Snakes – You do know that some of these venomous reptiles can kill you in one bite, right? Granted that most of them don’t have venom strong enough to make you prematurely meet your maker, but there are plenty of other reasons why you shouldn’t put one on a leash and take it out for a walk. Other types of venom, although can’t kill you, can give you a host of other problems which include but is not limited to searing pain, muscle cramps, disorientation, organ damage, and, necrosis, which is a condition wherein your flesh literally rots away in front of you. That’s why people who keep venomous snakes exercise extreme caution when handling them. They also have to be kept in escape proof cages because if they do somehow manage to escape, you aren’t only endangering the lives your family but also of your neighbors, and I’m pretty sure they won’t appreciate that. Large Constrictors somehow convinced you not to keep a cobra as a pet, but you still want to have a pet snake cuddle up with you at night.
Well, you can opt for the non-venomous varieties, but not all of them though. Burmese pythons are a particular favourite among snake enthusiasts and it’s not uncommon for people to keep them as pets, but it’s still not a good idea, especially for the inexperienced. These grow very, very big and it doesn’t take a long time before a clueless pet owner finds himself way in over his head. At this point, they only have a couple of choices; either give the snake away or release it into the wild. And given the fact that this snake is starting to take over the Florida Everglades, a place where they are not native to, releasing them isn’t really a good idea. Many owners of large constrictors have met their untimely demise from their beloved pet, too many and too graphic to mention here. But if you really, really want to have one, get the smaller, more docile ones, like the corn snake.
2. Ostrich – Despite how they look, aren’t overgrown chickens, so letting one run loose in your backyard isn’t really a good idea. Believe it or not, it’s quite easy to own one as a pet, you just need to know where to get one. There are literally hundreds of ostrich farms operating in the US today and they sell ostrich chicks for a price lesser than some breeds of dogs. Plus, feeding them isn’t expensive at all. But why isn’t it a good idea to keep one as a pet? Two things; they can be aggressive and they can kill a person if they wanted to. Those talons are the worst of your worries, large and sharp, the ostriches use them as weapons and coupled with their world-renowned powerful kicks, it’s bad news when one of these creatures suddenly decides to attack you.
3. Scorpions – Why people would want to keep scorpions as pets. They don’t really look the part of a loyal, lifelong companion, do they? However, some people like them and I’m not here to judge them, but rather just give a friendly warning. If you think about it, it’s fairly easy to understand why people like to keep them as pets. For one, they are very low maintenance. They don’t drink much too, especially the ones that are endemic to desert areas. There are hundreds of varieties to choose from, and they also come in all sorts of colours and sizes. Some are venomous some are not, but whichever variety you choose to take home with you, they are extremely dangerous. The poisonous one, obviously, carry lethal doses of poison in their tails. If you get stung by one of these, needless to say it’s going to give you more than a bad day. The non-venomous varieties, although not armed to kill, can still give you a bad day. The pain that both sting and pincers can give you will be more than enough to teach you not to touch them again. So, be like me and stay as far away from them as possible.
4. Crocodilians – Some people keep crocodilians as a pet. It’s illegal to keep in some states and while it’s legal in most Florida for instance doesn’t even require you a permit. There are many reasons why you still shouldn’t get one crocodilians are wild animals inviting any wild animal into your house is already inherently dangerous. sharp teeth and a bite force that could potentially tear your limbs off.
5. Tiger – Tigers pose an imminent threat to humans and must be released into the forest. The number of human attacks by large pet cats is huge. These 260 attacks were carried out by 16 cats, but more than 50% of the attacks were carried out by tigers.
6. Bat – While it is illegal to keep bats as pets in the United States and other countries, many states require exotic species, especially straw-coloured fruit bats, Egyptian fruit bats, and paper noses. Import is allowed. Bats Fortunately, as far as I know, bats are not very popular in the pet industry. But in fact, and it goes without saying, bats are not flying dogs. They are smart, extroverted and beautiful creatures, but that doesn’t mean they’re in your living room.
7. Kinkajous – Kinkajous can make great pets suitable for one person. It is not easy to bring it home because you are in contact with people. Kinkajou’s longevity means you will need to protect your pet for the next 20 years. So this is an important decision. Kinkajous doesn’t worry about heart failure. They are climbers accustomed to balancing and maintaining their branches while hanging with the help of their long, sturdy tails. While walking, turn Kinkajou’s legs to hold the branches firmly. If you want to run your Kinkujo without problems at home, you’ll have to spend a lot of time inspecting your pets for access to cables, sockets, poisonous plants, cleaning supplies, trash cans, and more. Animal curiosity and smart fingers in an uncontrolled environment are a dangerous mixture.
8. Wolves – The main purpose of this study was to clarify why dogs are different from humans and the cause of the symptoms. Ultimately, he wanted to see if the bite behavior of the wolf’s ancestors really existed or was the product of domestication and artificial selection. The former may be true, according to new research Previous studies have shown that human-trained wolves, such as dogs, are 16 weeks old and have nothing to do with keeper. This means that only dogs can have strong personal ties with humans.
