General Pet Info
« on: May 09, 2017, 06:25:06 pm »
This is by no means an all-inclusive guide. You must do your own research to be fully prepared to own an animal. This is just a starting point to most animal husbandry!
Likewise, I would also not trust what a chain pet store employee may tell you. They don't mean harm, but often they are not correctly informed about the animals they sell. Know about the animal you want BEFORE walking into a store or breeder's home.

If you find a resource that is particularly helpful (for any species!) that is not listed here, post below and I will add it to the respective category or make a new category.
