This is a scoping review on the welfare of exotic pets, requested by the Scottish Animal Welfare Commission, to provide independent evidence to inform recommendations on the keeping of exotic pets. The interim report on exotic pets in Scotland outlined concerns about the welfare of some non-domestic species which are in private ownership and highlighted a lack of information available on the number of animals which are traded and owned, the conditions in which they are bred and/or transported to the UK, and the suitability of captive environments in both commercial and private environments.
