Though there are many benefits to owning a pet, not everyone is content with conventional animals such as cats and dogs. In fact, the very adventurous pet owner might prefer a pet that is so exotic that it technically doesn’t exist. This book offer suggestions for crypto-zoological or mythological creatures. The main problem with owning such an animal is knowing how to look after it. A brief glance through the local paper will reveal a startling lack of ads offering baby bigfoots free to a good home, and little in the way of werewolf obedience classes. What, you may ask, does one feed a baby Mongolian Death Worm? Is the giant squid a good choice of pet if you live in a penthouse flat? This book gives a description of each animal, an assessment of its suitability for domestication, and tips on how to obtain and care for your chosen animal. Arranged in terms of dangerousness of animal, it is designed to be dipped into, so that the reader may quickly locate useful information such as how to remove the budgie from the jaws of a newly introduced pet sea monster, should the need arise. Armed with the information in this book, you’ll be ready to embark on the rewarding endeavor of owning your very own phoenix, dragon or bogeyman.
