That, my friends, will be one of the best things you could do for your children. It will also be something worthwhile on behalf of our scaly, creepy and feathered friends, otherwise known as exotic species and, perhaps, who knows, soon to become exotic pets. The reason behind this initiative is not just for the benefit of your children and the rare creatures that we are aiming to cherish and protect, it is also for your benefit. Some of you might be just a little too enthusiastic in my view. I would much rather you learn to appreciate budgies and parrots long before you ever have an opportunity to gently stroke one and feed it in your own home.
