Having a dog accompany you at the dinner table is one thing but how about a seven-foot bear? Among the 57 million pet owners worldwide, there are a few that prefer the more dangerous companions.
This documentary explores the unusual relationship between owners and their exotic pets. We meet an eight-foot-long crocodile, Jilly who often spends the night at her owners home in Melbourne, a one-tonne Buffalo called Cody who has to be showered in the local car wash and who goes on nights out to the local bar, and a tiger and a wallaby who are treated like one of the family.
