are you allergic to birds, certain amphibians, reptilian critters and other pests that aren't mammals. Mammals have fur, but these critters have scaley, soft, slimy and feathers.

I have never heard of allergies to animals that are not mammals. I guess it is possibleā€¦I thought that it was the fur that creates problems for some people. Fortunately there is no particular fur I am allergic to and as far as the non-mammals go I like to think I am safe with them too...I hope!

I am not allergic to those types of animals that I know of. I have not been around all of them to know for sure though.

some of those scare me, i don't like lizards and snakes...I can tolerate birds, turtles and frogs...:) Some of those animals carry nasty diseases.
