I think this sounds like a neat program, but it really ought to emphasize some things.
1) Wild animals do not make good pets, and rehabilitators, who must be licensed, take in animals only until they can be released.. (unless they are permanently injured.
2) exotic pets require special care, and it is often expensive and time consuming.
3)wild/exotic pets can be more dangerous than regular pets, and can injure those who don't know how to handle them.

It's neat to see these pets, but it's sad when people go out and get one on impulse after watching shows like this. Then they find it is too much trouble and expense and dump. Please be careful about what message you send.
