Salman Haqqi, personal finance expert at money.co.uk, commented on the findings: 

“Owning a mythical pet is a dream of many children, and even some adults – although we’d likely all steer clear of zombies and vampires in favour of dragons and unicorns. If you want the next best thing and are after a rare or exotic pet, here are some top tips to take into consideration before buying a new pet: 

1.       Do your research 

Before you go out and purchase the pet of your dreams, make sure you’ve thoroughly researched the legality and care requirements, as well as the time and money that goes into owning an exotic pet. 

2.       Look into insurance 
You may need to purchase specialist insurance for your exotic pet, and you will need to find out which local veterinary clinics will be able to cater for your pet and their needs. If your pet is particularly costly to buy or they need specialist care, your insurance premiums are likely to go up. 

3.       Pet-proof your home 

Although dogs, cats and other common pets can cause damage to your home and its contents, exotic pets with large claws or sharp teeth could cause more damage than you’d think. Remember, it’s your responsibility to keep your possessions safe, not your pet’s.”
