S: You really should go to Rachel's pet store.
M: why? anything special there?
S: it's more than special. You can find as many kinds of animals as you can put a name to and more.
M: Oh, really? are there any snakes?
S: snakes? there are even rodents and monkeys! it's a world of exotic pets.
M: that's terrific. I can't wait to check it out.
S: Hang on. are you sure you want to keep a non-traditional pet?
hy not? it's so cool.
S: but it will pose a risk to your health.
S: i mean, most reptiles carry some harmful bacteria. they are likely to cause immune system problems.
M: well, I didn't realize that.
S: I don't believe it's a good choice to keep those pets, especially for families with young children.
M: oh, I should have thought of my brother's baby girl. Maybe I'll just have a dog instead of an exotic pet.
S: yes, good luck, Maria.
