Should people be able to have exotic pets like Chimpanzees or Tigers? Some people say that having an exotic pet helps them to learn more about wild animals, and they do not have to be dangerous, and people would get bored with regular pets then exotic animals. Others think that people should not keep exotic animals, because they are too dangerous even if people trained them.

It also helps the trainer or the keeper to have food and know what they eat. Find out how bug they will get, so the keeper would know. Stzer added, “What if the animal has a gigantic cage and doesn’t bite you?” Back in 2011, Jasim Al Hosani, a Kuwaiti TV interviewer went to visit Foaad Apple, 53, the most famous tigers keeper in Kuwait. Jasim asked Foaad about this hobby and when it started? Is it dangerous or not? Is it safe?
