I don't know why someone would want to take a wild animal and keep it in a small cage, anyway. Seems kind of cruel. *Hellooooo...your gambian rats belong in GAMBIA. *Boomslangs and brown tree snakes and boas and pythons don't belong in this country, either. How about the snake-head fish? *Nor do iguanas, caimans, or whatever. *Exotic animals, when released...do incredible ecological damage to native species. And they WILL escape, or just be set free by owners who have grown bored of them. *Just have a look at Hawaii, and the horrible toll non-native species have done there. *Cats, pigs, dogs, goats, mosquitoes, you name it.
