There aren't any pics to go along with this article. However, I thought BAXTER would fit the bill.

Noted. Another reason not to buy exotic pets. In fact, there are a lot of good reasons not to "buy" pets period while thousands are homeless or being euthanized.

If you already have hedgehogs, turtles, chicks and hamsters, be careful - wash your hands!
Thank you dear Barb.
