Invertebrates can make fantastic exotic pets, even though they might not suit everyone. Scorpions, tarantulas, millipedes, ants, praying mantises, cockroaches and more can all be kept as pets, and most of them are very easy to care for.
It’s wise to put some careful thought into buying an invertebrate pet – some species like scorpions are venomous, but not necessarily dangerous. Others are just likely to be hard to find pet sitters for. Another important consideration is the opinion of anyone else you live with!
Still, the range of invertebrates that are suitable for keeping as pets is extensive, and any pet invertebrate is bound to be a great experience. Many people who are initially unsure of whether it’s a good idea are quickly converted into enthusiastic invertebrate owners.
Here at Exotic Pets Resources, we aim to provide everything you need to know when it comes to caring for your invertebrate, including detailed care sheets plus recommended products and supplies to give your pet everything it needs.
