Small animals can be a great addition to your family, they are usually not as restricted by housing regulations as their larger canine and feline cousins, and are often just as companionable, loving and playful.  Known as a great starter or "learning pet" for children, they can teach responsibility and mutual trust to your child while providing them the opportunity to learn about daily care.  Small animals encompass an extremely diverse range of animal types, personalities and needs.
