Animals that Do Not Make Good Pets
By Tonia Jordan
As humans, many of us have an affinity for animals. We seek companions in pets, but there are quite a number of animals that do not make good pets. Some of them are obvious, like very poisonous spiders and snakes, but some are not quite so obvious. Below are just a few of the animals that should not be kept as pets:
Scorpions – These animals do not require a great amount of care, but are not an ideal pet. Handling a scorpion is not a good idea – Besides the risk of its sting, scorpions become very stressed when handled, a health risk to the creature itself.
