In this episode we discuss our experiences living with companion animal species that fall outside what is considered common or traditional. We’ll talk about some of the issues with the ‘exotic’ pet trade, understanding the individual and species specific needs, and the relationships between human and non-human companions. We feature a couple of special guests, a green-cheeked conure named Bifrost and a royal python named Apep.
