When I was young we didn't have instant access to info on the net... so researching a pet meant going to the library or trusting the pet store. There are now nearly unlimited resources with care advice for "standard" and exotic pets, especially a lot of great hubs
A prime example is hermit crabs. They really take a lot of setup to keep them alive and healthy, and almost none of the "hermit crab kits" actually provide what they need. Hermit crabs are sold from kiosks to tourists on the beach and are very common pets for children because they're low-maintenance (although not as low-maintenance as they are thought to be). Unfortunately, most pet stores don't know how to keep them, so if you don't do the research beforehand you either end up with a) a dead pet or b) at least $50 in extra expenses to get a proper crabitat going.
So, would you buy a pet for your child based on what the pet store recommends and/or what you think you know, or would you research it first?
