    But this is the pet/private collection forum...? Do you own them or are you saying you don't consider them 'pets'?

    They don't have to be handleable or cuddly to be pets. People in the UK seem to have access to more species.

    I will have to disagree, Europe keeps lots of more species than America. Streaked tenrecs are a good example. And I know echidnas kept in Czech

    Well that's just one example. We have California condor and Pronghorn. Europe doesn't.
    We have American Robin. Europe doesn't.
