Dangerous pets

Read a report recently that a Tarantula escaped from a pet shop in London.

Apparantly there is a pet shop in Warrington that sells Asian Spitting Cobras.

 

Can anyone explain what the attraction is of owning a tarantula or a spitting cobra, and why are shops allowed to sell them? :unsure: :unsure:

I don't know why anyone would want either of these as a pet, but equally I don't know why shops shouldn't be allowed to sell them. :unsure: :unsure: :unsure:

When you buy a car it isn't the responsibility of the car vendor to ensure you have a license to drive it, so I would imagine it is the resposibility of the buyer of the dangerous animal to obtain a license. :wink:

I actually went to two pet stores in Warrington yesterday looking for a tarantula. They're easy to look after and can be quite interesting to watch, especially when their feeding (depending on the type). Me and my partner decided not to in the end as after much research, they recommend not to handle them as they're very fragile. I have always wanted a snake, but I would never buy one that I thought would be dangerous.

Do you have to take it back after three years for its MOT* test
