On the remote Scottish island of Lewis lives a woman who has an unusual relationship with her horse – Stephanie Noble has moved her Connemara pony into her living room. The TV has been replaced by hay bales and there is no sofa, just a fence to keep the two-ton horse at bay.

Meanwhile Ian Newbie is back to rescue unwanted exotic animals and today he is going to take charge of two very snappy critters. He is off to a zoo to take possession of two 5-foot long caimans and take them to their new home, which is also his house. Before setting out on the trip, he cooks his family a super-sized omelette made from one of Beakie's giant eggs – Beakie being his pet emu.

Elsewhere, Grand Wizard Mystic Ed has a cat called Angelica, who uses her own mystical powers to channel spirits as well as helping Mystic Ed to see into the future.

    I'm 14 years old and I have a Leopard Gecko! Her name is Sky and I think that there is absolutely nothing wrong with keeping reptiles. I love this program and love to learn more about the animal I keep and others with the same interest. I honestly didn't know that a Leo counted as a strange pet! I never thought about it before but I guess everyone's different :)

    s dawson needs to get a life if ya ask me as a reptile owner i can see the amount of money, time and effort put into the monitor lizards he has well done to him giving them a safe and warm home stops them getting into the hands of unexperianced exotic animal keepers so comments like that made by people who will most likely never have kept one nor done the research should keep nose out

    I am going to write to Channel5 about this programme, specifically the chap with the giant lizard in his loft. It's cruel and should be illegal and in the programme he was mistreating it. How people can call themselves animal lovers, but then have animals kept in small cages and tanks I do not know...especially exotic reptiles that shouldn't even be in this country. It's very wrong.

    Me and my fiancée have loved watching this program, it has opened my eyes more to my fiancées world. He owns 1 corn snake and 2 crested geckos!! And i know the more space we get the more wonderful animals he will have =) I have seen that many people complain a lot about the animals and there owners as neighbours but me and my fiancée would have anyone of these people and families as neighbours any day!!! =D
