Information, health care, accessories, shelter and feed are readily available for 33 animals. The local library, veterinarian, feed store or County Extension Office offer assistance in raising and caring for traditional domestic pets or farm animals. Millions of people from all walks of life own one or more of these pets --dog, cat, bird, fish. Farms with pigs, sheep, goats, cows and horses exist within almost every county in this nation. Animal control centers speculate by the number of licensed pets the ratio between pet and human population is at least 1:1.

Such basic information - health resources and feed - are not always so easily attained when it comes to raising exotic or unusual animals.

A Resource Book
This book was a great idea. The desirable qualities, history, potential problems and specific needs of every animal are clarly explained. THE ODD LOT is easy to read, thorough, informative and entertaining.

Reader Reviews for "THE ODD LOT: Raising Unusual Animals"

Reviewed by Linda Beattie Inlow 1/11/2006
I married a man with 5 llamas, when he died we had 40 llamas, 6 Shetland sheep, 2 African serval cats, and the domesticated barn cat. It was difficult to find animals to copliment the llamas. We found so little research on the animals we were interested in, namely ostrich, emu and sika, we decided to compile the information we had gleaned into a book. We included information on other "odd" creatures like kangaroos, pot bellied kids and miniature livestock. We attempted to put in information that would benefit the curious - what the animals were, where they came from, owners - resources, publications, organizations and potential owners - actual comments and advise from owners, web sites and phone numbers for contact.
This book was a work of love and published long after Richard's death, but his research and enthusiasm for the project fill every page.
