Dr. Jungle's Exotic Pets of The World
"For what is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, men would die from great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to man. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the children of the earth."

Join me and share in an exploration of Animals of the World!
" My travels across several continents have given me a special and unique opportunity to become acquainted with all sorts of animals, birds, fish, herptiles (that's reptiles and amphibians), and other creatures. My only problem was that I don’t speak human! So, how do I share these critters stories and information with humans?
"To my great delight, upon my arrival in North America, I have been brought into the company of some very special humans...

Animal-World is about responsible pet ownership, but more than that it is about preserving and honoring the environment and its inhabitants, which give us our livelihoods and our very life blood.
With the kinship and love that we feel for our pets comes the responsibility of knowing and providing what is best for them. From raising puppies or kittens to keeping exotic corals and fish in our living rooms we can enhance both their lives and ours with the knowledge of where they came from, what type of environment they were born to, and the limitations which captive care imposes on our keeping of them.
Today, more than ever, the very survival of many species depends upon responsible pet ownership. The destruction of many of the world's natural habitats including rain forests and coral reefs, demands a proactive approach to setting aside sanctuaries, refuges, and marine reserves.
For those animals already in danger of extinction, we need to learn as much as we can about what they need to eat, what kinds of environments they require to thrive, and how to breed them. Hobbyists and pet owners are playing an increasingly important role in this regard. Studying and observing behaviours in our living rooms and backyards is helping us to understand and keep these animals better.
Some of the animals presented here at Animal-World.com have been domesticated for centuries, while others have only been named in recent years past. Many animals, especially in the coral reefs and oceans of the world are yet to be discovered and named. Marine biology, by many accounts, is in its' infancy with a mere 50 years or so of scuba gear available to scientists who are now able to observe fish directly in their natural environments.
To this end, Animal-World.com will strive to provide accurate and timely information. The knowledge we have today will surely be expanded upon and modified as new studies and discoveries uncover new facts. We are commited to publishing that information here at Animal-World.
