Miami Metrozoo's pet amnesty day

So that pet marmoset, anaconda, or poison dart frog you have isn't really working out. You would like to part with the exotic critter, but it's not like you can just release the little (or huge) guy into the wild, and selling the thing may even be illegal. For pet owners in this kind of bind, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has a way out -- but only for a day. Nonnative pet amnesty day, to be specific. Saturday at the Miami Metrozoo from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the wildlife commission will accept exotic or illegal pets of all types and place them with qualified pet adopters or licensed animal dealers, no questions asked, free of charge.
