View Full Version : Exotic Pets

Does anybody have any exotic pets? If so, what kind? If not, are there any exotic animals you would want as a pet?

I want 2 sugar gliders, so that they can keep each other company. I also want a savannah cat.

I would have loved to have a little monkey to take care of, but that's not too environmentally friendly so i wouldn't really do it.
I don't know if you can class this as a pet (It's huge :P) but a horse is another little dream of mine.

I currently have two pets. One Chihuahua and one Labrador.

I would love, like nick, to have a little monkey. Preferably a capuchin monkey.

I want a hedgehog! Too bad my cats would eat it. I want a rabbit more and that's not exotic though.

Do my siblings classify as exotic pets?

Anyway, I'd really like to have a chameleon. I think they're so cute.

I would love a dolphin and a flamingo.

Maybe that's a bit obvious.

I used to have a bearded dragon; does that count as exotic?

I would love to have some type of lizard or snake and a hedgehog.

I always mentioned as a joke that I'd like a freshwater sea sponge in an aquarium as a pet. If I ever do find one, I'd actually probably take it, I love sponges :P

Honestly, im against people owning exotic animals as pets. ANY of them. And this includes snakes, lizards, even tropical fish too. They don't belong here!! Some of the animals people bring here (even legally) as "pets" is amazing. Baby lions?? Really? Green Anaconda? Leemurs? Monkeys? Usually after a year or so, they can't keep them and they get put-down. All because some jag-off wanted to look "cool" for a little while. Well dead animals that dont belong here arent cool.

Why tropical fish? Because of how they get collected. They use high explosive charges that causes all the fish to get stunned (sellable or not). The collect them all as they float on top of the water, then sort out the ones they want, and toss the rest into a landfill. If more people knew the truth about 99% of the exotic creatures they keep as "pets", they should be saddened by owning them in the first place and not using the excuse that they are just "admiring" them.

So there! :D

I'd like sugar gliders. Maybe chinchillas, but I hear they're kind of temperamental.

I'd love a finger monkey.

I would love to care for an animal rescued from the wild that couldn't be returned. I would also want to adopt exotic pets like skunks, farm pigs, geese, wallabies, farm pigs (not too exotic but different), etc.

i used to want a lil piglet but then i realized they squeal all the time, you cant really even pet them and if i'm eating bacon and the pig is in the kitchen with me then it'll probably be damn pissed and plot my death so pass

i've never known anyone with a bobcat or a lynx as a pet so i'd own one if could. cats are life.

Oh boy. I want a pig. I'll give up bacon for that. Also a miniature horse, cause I don't think I'd have space for a regular one.

Don't have any exotic pets but I'd love to have a wild animal like the Bengal tiger. I'd have to tame it though:)

a magpie!



The Eurasian magpie is believed not only to be among the brightest of birds but among the most intelligent of all animals. Along with the jackdaw, the Eurasian magpie's nidopallium is approximately the same relative size as those in chimpanzees and humans, significantly larger than the gibbon's.[3] Like other corvids, such as ravens and crows, their total brain-to-body mass ratio is equal to most great apes' and cetaceans.'[11]

Magpies have been observed engaging in elaborate social rituals, possibly including the expression of grief.[12] Mirror self-recognition has been demonstrated in European magpies,[13] making them one of but a few species and the only non-mammal known to possess this capability.[14] The cognitive abilities of the Eurasian magpie are regarded as evidence that intelligence evolved independently in both corvids and primates. This is indicated by tool use, an ability to hide and store food across seasons, episodic memory, using their own experience to predict the behavior of conspecifics.[2] Another behavior exhibiting intelligence is cutting their food in correctly sized proportions for the size of their young. In captivity magpies have been observed counting up to get food, imitating human voices, and regularly using tools to clean their own cages.[citation needed] In the wild, they organise themselves into gangs and use complex strategies hunting other birds and when confronted by predators.[15]

idk where I'd get one, but a talking crow tho

I have horses but they're pretty common breeds unles you count thefact that my mustang was running wild for about 2 1/2 years. I'd love to eventually (if I live long enough) to purchase a Sugarbush Harlequin draft horse or an Akhal-Teke. I would also enjoy having a Rottweiler, Catahula Leopard dog, Doberman, or Weimeriner.

I have 13 pet rats and 2 ferrets.
I think they're considered "exotic".

Along with them I have a rabbit, 2 guinea pigs, 2 cats and 2 dogs.

I have a hedgehog called Neffy. She likes cottage cheese and fish. Since she's an insectivore we give her mealworms and we used to have live crickets but my brother couldn't stand the noise and they were too big for her so she was scared of them. She lives in a closet and she runs on a wheel.
