Exotic or Domestic is the first question to ask yourself? Do you want a pet that is unusual or the more regular? There is a wide range of pets to choose from, besides the common dog, cat, or hamster choices.
However, exotic pets come with more responsibilities, thus the pet owner has to be ready and willing to do everything the pet needs. These pets may demand more time and plenty of attention, but are worth it, if you are an exotic pet fan.
There are many exotics pets to choose from. Prices can range from 100$ to $138.00 and sometimes there are legal obligations (requiring special license, etc.) to buying certain types of pets. So do the research first! Research should include: the state laws for exotic pets (specific to the type you want), imported or breed in U.S. what the pet requires, health concerns (for pet and pet owner), what are the risks, and what are the advantages. Then decide if you really want to devote all that is required for the pet.

Sugar Gliders are small marsupials from northeast Australia. These are also nocturnal, but still very social (so be ready to stay up late to play). These are recommended to buy in pairs for the social reasons.
