  • 01

    The Fennec Fox

    In general, getting a fox as a pet is just a bad idea because they don't usually make very good pets, but the fennec fox is another story. They make great pets. They are small, playful, non-threatening, and can easily be house trained. They also don't grow to be much bigger than a Chihuahua and the do require a lot of exercise and playtime, but all in all, they are truly a sweet and delightful little pet to have.

    The Capybara

    The capybara is actually a rodent, but nothing like a little guinea pig or hamster. Capybaras can grow up to 4 feet long and they can weigh more than a 100 pounds. Depending on where you live, you may need to make sure that having a capybara as a pet is not illegal since some areas have a no exotic pet legislation in place. One thing to note, capybaras are really high maintenance. You will need to have plenty of room and a pond or a pool for them to swim.

  • 03

    Hedgehogs

    Despite the hedgehog's spine, hedgehogs are extremely friendly and they are known to become extremely affectionate with their owners. Even though hedgehogs require a lot of attention, they make the perfect pets because they are so calm and low maintenance. Before considering one as a pet, check with your local legislation. They are also nocturnal, so if you can't stay up past 9:00 p.m., a hedgehog may not be the right pet for you.

  • 04

    Skunks

    Ever thought about having a pet skunk? Surprisingly, a skunk makes an excellent pet, but of course, it would be best to have their scent glands removed. That being said, if you should choose to have a pet skunk, you have to stay committed because they cannot live in the wild without their scent glands. Pet skunks are easy to look after and are low maintenance. They can keep themselves entertained with different toys too.

  • 05

    The Spotted Genet

    Orginally from Africa, spotted genets make great pets, especially for those who love independent animals. They are quite active and high-strung. As you can tell from the photo, they kind of look like a cross between a ferret, a cat, and a raccoon. They are quite skittish and do better in a home where they are an only pet. Again, a spotted genet is considered to be an exotic pet, so you should check with your local laws before getting one.




Final Thoughts

It's important to note that coverage from exotic pets may not by offered by all providers, so make sure you can get the coverage your pet needs before you bring one home. Visit http://www.shieldmypet.com to learn more about getting the right coverage for your pet.
