A veteran photographer who has explored the connections between animals and humans, Vincent J. Musi has been spit at by a chimpanzee, screamed at by a prairie dog, and charged by a pig-all in a day's work. For a story on "Exotic Pets" to appear in the April 2014 National Geographic, Musi explored the deep connections some people have with creatures you can't get at the pet store-from a deer with her own bedroom, to a cuddly potbellied pig, and beyond! He'll share images and stories from this assignment and from other forays into the world of our non-human friends, including his March 2008 article on "Animal Minds."
