Legislation used:

. Exotic animals being kept as pets limits a number of things:- There amount of natural behaviours that can be displayed- Which natural behaviours can be displayed- Expressing natural behaviours is a right in th Animal Welfare Act 2006, so a limit to these goes against the animal rights- Exotic animals often require more specific requirements than domesticated animals - The climate in the UK often is not correct for these animals, as seen as they do not live here in the wild.- These requirements are often expensive and therefore some owners cannot afford to sustain these costs --> this will affect the animal's welfare negatively as basic requirments are not met --> result in death of animal or release into wild (invasive species)-Threat of carry diseases which can be zoonotic --> Affect both the owner and the pet - Many of the exotic pets kept by people are more dangerous and therefore it could harm the owner- The idea of having exotic animals as pets also increases the liklihood of illegal pet trading (4-20 billion dollars made a year in this industry) due to demand --> extremely bad for animal that is being sold --> due to taken straight from the wild (affect biodiversity of habitats), illegal traders will keep the cost of keeping the animals to a bare minimum (resulting in poor welfare)
