Unusual Pets?

Postby CerataPhthalma » Wed Apr 06, 2016 2:33 am

Anyone here have any "unusual" pets? I have a cat (whom I love dearly), but I also have a betta fish, a goldfish, and a hermit crab :)

My hermit crab is the real odd duck in the lot--I've had him for going on 14-15 years now! He has outlived all the others I used to house with him, and now meanders around his tank happily at all hours, occasionally chirping and "dancing" at the front of his cage when he isn't climbing, drinking, burrowing, or redecorating. He is never shy to be handled, and is always ready for a good walk on the occasions when I do take him out to play! He's been a real treat--I'm really going to miss the old man when he goes 1sa

I keep watch over the spiders who dwell in the backyard, and make sure they are well, feed them sometimes, etc. They are also fun to hold, especially when they get big.

Some day, I want to get a Goliath Bird-eating Spider. Those guys are amazing, and can grow up to 12" .

I have tarantulas and emu


Some people are like slinkies. They serve no useful purpose what so ever; but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs

I do not feed Trolls. I never seem to have a spare goat on hand when I cross a bridge; and I never like to waste a good goat on an annoying Troll. Ignoring them is such a wonderful option.

I had a snail once..

I grew up with chinchillas. My mother loves them and bred them as pets, like I'm talking there would be dozens of chinchillas running around. I remember bringing one to show-and-tell when I was a kid. C hinchillas aren't so exotic anymore, though.

We currently have a wild Savannah cat which is a hybrid between a Serval and a domestic cat, and a Saluki which is the earliest dog breed descended from Wolves.

a miniature horse and a mini donkey too.. but I don't think of them as being unusual :)

we also raise geese, ducks, chickens, and turkeys.. but I think of them more as dinner than pets.

Also snakes, parrots, dogs, cats, rats, fire belly toads..

we have a few "resident" wild critters.. a opossum (not a pet.. though he comes up and begs for food every evening and has 0 fear of us) and squirrel (also not a pet but comes up and begs for food every day and will sit on my shoulder)

used to have ferrets and rabbits.. but the rabbits ended up on the dinner table and the ferrets died of old age.

One of our cats is a savannah too! (F3)
