They're cute as babies, but they get big

As noted in Tiger King, everyone loves an adorable tiger cub. But many endangered animals, including snakes, lizards, chimpanzees, and other primates, not to mention tigers, get big—really big. "When they are young, animals are very lovable, cute, and interesting to be around, but when they grow into adults, they may either become large and difficult to house or control, even becoming dangerous to be around," Pollock says. "Or they may lose their appeal by no longer being the cute and fluffy creature you first fell in love with, or by damaging furniture and other possessions." In keeping such a pet, you're the one who may have bitten off more than you can chew.
