An exotic pet is a rare or unusual creature kept as a pet, or a creature kept as a pet which is not commonly thought of as a pet. The definition is an evolving one; some rodents, reptiles, and amphibians have become firmly enough established in the world of animal fancy to no longer be considered exotic. Sometimes any unique or wild-looking pet (including common domestic animals such as the ferret and the domestic rat) is called an exotic pet. "Exotic" may also be used for a species which is non-indigenous to the owner's locale. Many major pet stores and service providers (such as veterinary insurance carriers or online retailers) tend to classify any animal besides cats, dogs, or fish as "exotic".

Long Live "What Were You Thinking?"

I just found Bob Tarte's podcast today and I'm SO glad I did! Where else can I hear all about genius vs. valley girl chickens, proper care and feeding of our feathered friends and curious anecdotes from the minds of fellow animal-lovers. THANK YOU for this wonderful podcast. I feel at home.


I could listen to Bob and Linda talk about their birds all day. A great podcast and interesting interviews with other exotic pet owners. I highly recommend this podcast.

Listen to Linda and Bob (& the birds)!

Excellent fun, informative and captivating. Bob and Linda are a hoot and they have great guests. The birds in the background are wonderful. I especially like hearing the one who keeps whistling, what sounds to me, the opening notes of Colonel Boogie's March.
