We are a nation of animal lovers in the United Kingdom, and of that there is no doubt. We love to have animals around us for companionship and our pet encourages us to go on long walks because they like it too. Generally, you need a fair sized garden to keep a dog, for example, but with a cat or another type of pet, you just need somewhere to live. Many of us live busy lives and don’t have the time to look after a dog that needs attention 24/7 but there are other pets out there that need less attention and are really easy to look after. Insects and spiders are two such pets, and in some cases, you only have to feed them once a week and it is happy.

There is an affordable exotic pets shop in Bristol and the choices for a pet are enormous. Here are some examples of unusual pets that you might like to consider.

  1. Tarantulas are a wonderful pet to have. They only need a little bit of space like a small container with holes for air and you only need to feed them occasionally. You can take them out and let them walk across your hand and then put them back again.
  2. Lizards are another pet that are fairly easy to take care of. You can get ones that change their body colour to reflect their surroundings and you can have hours and hours of fun with this.
  3. A bird like a parrot is a great pet and some of them even talk. Once you keep the cage clean and give them some attention and they are quite happy.
