Sadly the poor creatures will probably either end up being dumped or mistreated in some way. I support a local shelter that offers sanctuary to exotic creatures such as meerkats and snakes, they also take in pigs (bought as micro pigs when they weren't) and even a caiman, which no doubt look so cute until it grew to a metre long. Hopefully these creatures will end up there and maybe one day be re-united with the person who looks after them.

In our "civilization ? the Birds of Prey and Snakes would have ganged up on the Meerkats and had lunch.
