Dynamite uses the term "exotic" to describe animals that have been moved from their natural habitat and/or have been recently domesticated. These can include exotic pets, zoo animals, and even animals like alpacas, which have been domesticated for a while but are being raised in completely different environments than their species was originally designed to thrive. These animals have unique needs because they often do not have access to the specific plants, insects, or prey that their species requires in order to obtain nutrients. As a result, it becomes imperative to supplement these animals' diets with a full spectrum of nutrients to cover what their diet is lacking. Behavioral issues, depression, fur loss, allergies, and even cage pacing can be indicators of a nutritional deficiency.
