We all have seen movies with animals in them. Sometimes they are the protagonists and other times they help the protagonist in achieving his/her goal. But in all cases they are an important part of the movie and without them the movie would not have had a happy ending. They entertain us and make us laugh and cry at the same time. As most of you have probably already realized that the death of an animal in a movie makes us weep and cry more than the death of human does. Most people watch these movies and get inspired to keep pets at home but before you run to the pet store and adopt a pet after seeing it in a cute Disney movie make sure you can take care of it properly. They are for life and must be treated with utmost love.
Here are some movies which melted your heart and made you run to the pet store at the earliest.
He is one of the leading characters in tangled and acts as a friend and well wisher to Rapunzel. He is the one who forces Rapunzel to see that she should leave the tower soon and experience the world for herself. He can’t speak but communicates through his actions. He doesn’t like people who seem to want to hurt Rapunzel and initially he is also apprehensive of Flynn Rider. Later he realizes that Flynn is pure at heart and gives his blessing to the happy couple. Keeping chameleons as pets is a non conventional choice and those who want to keep one must bear in mind that though they make great pets they won’t be like Pascal at all.
NEMO (FINDING NEMO)
This movie was a big hit and it was probably the reason why clown fishes became hugely popular as pets. This story is about a father clownfish and his friend Dory (regal blue tang) who search the seas for Nemo who was caught by a group of fishermen. Clownfish are beautiful sea fishes that are found in a variety of colours. They are yellow, reddish, orange and blackish and many of them have white patches. They have a symbiotic relationship with sea anemones. Another type of fish which gained popularity was the regal blue tang. As the name suggest they have a shocking blue body with a yellow tail. They are highly popular in the marine aquariums.

Another one of our favourite pets, guinea pigs have been made superheroes in this movie. Anyone who thinks that guinea pigs are small docile creatures will not think so after they have seen this movie. They are depicted as James Bond in G- force and their goal is to save the world from destruction. The movie traces the life of 4 guinea pigs that have been given the task of saving the world. This task is given to them by the US government and their job is to stop a diabolical billionaire who plans on taking over the world. They realize that the fate of the entire world is in their paws and they run into the battle field without worrying about their own lives.
Getting inspired from movies and buying a pet is not a crime but getting a pet without proper research is. Once you get a pet it is like bringing a baby home. You can’t just discard it when you are bored. It is your responsibility to take care of your pet till the day it dies. Most people watch these movies and get caught up in the action. They start imagining their pets to be some sort of superhero and after realizing that their pet isn’t like the one in the movie they get disappointed and stop loving and caring for their pet. Animals need our love and attention and you must realize that no matter how much money you spend you will never get an animal that behaves like the animals in movies. Animated movies depict animals in the way they do to entertain children and they should not be considered a documentary on animal behaviour. We must realize the fact that dogs don’t have super powers, guinea pigs don’t fight crime and chameleons won’t ever be as affectionate as dogs.
