    Animal Odd Couples: Animals And Their Humans

    Post unlikely/unusual pet choices in this thread:



    Biologist Liz Bonnin explores why some of the most bizarre and surprising animals pair up with each other and with us. She scours the globe in search of the most extraordinary and cute animal relationships, investigating why such odd couples sometimes form. From dogs mothering baby tigers and polar bears befriending huskies, to buffaloes bonding with grown men and lions behaving like our brothers.

    In this episode, Liz will look at the most incredible friendships between humans and some of the most dangerous creatures from around the world, including a polar bear, lions and a pack of hyenas.

    Exotic animals should never be kept by average citizens, especially those of the predatory variety. For those who choose to do so this is mainly due to an ego trip. And for those who provide these animals, it's due entirely to financial gain. So, what about these magnificent creatures that are being bought and sold as if they were commodities. What generally happens to them?

    Lilly and I have the financial ability, available property, and time to care for an exotic animal, but we wisely choose to restrict our interest to rescuing domestic cats, which costs roughly $2,000 annually for food and litter, besides veterinary expenses just for the nine we adopted. Can you imagine how much it would cost to properly care for a single big cat?.. Oh, my goodness!



    "In this episode, Matt takes a tour of the Exotic Feline Rescue Center in Centerpoint, Indiana. They are one of the largest rescue centers for big cats in the country. With about 200 exotic felines, this place takes in neglected and unwanted cats, and allows them to live out their lives in a safe and happy environment. This place does amazing work for these big cats. We hope you get a chance to come see these amazing animals for yourself. You will have a great time!"

    (BTW, the EFRC is located near our home, which we think is cool.
    )
