Here Are These Top 5 Most Expensive Exotic Pets In The World.
Tiger - R 150 000
Tigers are not domesticated cats. None of the six surviving species of tiger (another three are extinct) should be kept as pets. Tigers are huge, strong, fanged predators that eat dozens of pounds of meat per day and need acres of expensive high-security enclosures.
Although owning a pet tiger may sound thrilling, experts warn that caring for these heavyweight apex predators is far more challenging.
Hyacinth Macaw - R 165 000
The largest flying parrot species in the world, the Hyacinth Macaw's numbers have shrunk dramatically as their habitat has shrunk and their demand for pets has increased.
Incredibly strong, they must be kept in double welded cages and trained from a young age against biting.
Goliath Palm Cockatoo - R 225 000
The black palm cockatoo can be a good pet, but don't expect it to be as affectionate as many other parrots. To tame this species, the bird requires a lot of attention and consistent training. It is a brilliant and social bird, so if you are persistent, you can get this bird to follow your commands.
Sunset Ball Python - R 375 000
