Exotic Pet Survey

Dear exotic pet owner: I appreciate you taking the time from your busy schedule to look over this questionnaire, and hopefully to fill it out. This is a totally anonymous survey about exotic pet ownership.

According to the AVMA and the USDA, no one has ever done such a study, and as an exotic pet owner myself, I see a great need for it. The general public only hears about the abuses, maulings and escapes, so most people tend to believe everyone who owns an exotic pet has a malnourished lion or a six-foot alligator in the basement. I believe it would be beneficial to have some real data about the types of exotics actually owned.

This study will attempt to do this, and also characterize the laws that affect exotic owners, both positively and negatively. This is the second phase of a PhD dissertation, and the results of the survey are very important. READ More
