Indian star tortoises
African grey parrots
It’s no wonder these little creatures are called stars!
Want something easy to transport?
These guys are so easy to move around that most poachers just scoop them up and stuff them in a sack with dozens of their friends. Many suffocate, but there’s plenty more where they came from (sort of!).
Want a popular pet?
With an estimated 55,000 Indian star tortoises illegally poached for the pet trade every year from just one of many trade locations, you’re sure to be in good company with this little reptile.
Looking for something delicate?
Don’t be fooled by their tough skin and hard shell, these tortoises are big softies on the inside. In fact, just handling them a little too much can lead to disease, stress and even death – how refined!
Now here’s something that’ll make all your friends jealous – your very own semi-aquatic cutie!
Looking for commitment?
Otters often mate for life in the wild, so when one a pup is ripped away from its home for your pet-owning pleasure you can be sure they’ll stay loyal.
Always wanted to adopt?
Poachers often select baby otters for the pet trade and will kill their fiercely protective parents in the process – so no need to worry about those pesky birth parents.
Like pets with party tricks?
Once snatched from the wild, these furry little fellas start acting a bit cuckoo. Unnatural behaviours include begging for food, pacing back and forth, and even developing obsessive compulsive disorder – how cute.
One of the most poached animals in the world – and for good reason!
Need some attention?
In the wild, these parrots love nothing more than socialising in flocks of up to 1,000 birds. Can you imagine how much attention you’ll get from your pet parrot without all those other parrots to distract them?
Not a fan of feathers?
Don’t worry. Many of these highly intelligent animals tear out their feathers from the stress and boredom of being trapped in a house.
Want a unique pet?
Thanks to illegal trapping and deforestation, some wild parrot populations have declined by as much as 99% – so they’re super exclusive pets. PLUS, up to 66% die before they even become a pet, making yours even more special.
