What's the strangest animal you've seen someone have as a pet?


Powerful animal welfare organizations tell us that exotic pet ownership is on the rise. Do you know of anyone with a pet tiger or any other unusual pet? What's the strangest animal you've seen someone have as a pet? A wolfdog? A sugar glider? Ducks?

    Well, it would be in the suburbs I suppose. I was just looking for more answers :) Ground squirrels can also be captive bred.

    By strange, I meant uncommon, as those animals you listed certainly are (this is a good thing). Primates might be illegal where you live. I'd love to have a kink or a wallaby. Monkeys are a little harder to defend as pets.

    I had no idea they were considered odd at that time, although I was 4. I had one briefly.

    Yeah, I've seen living ones about 2x living here. All the others were hit by cars.

    Victoria Anne, I replied to you and erased it for a spelling error, and now it won't let me re-post. Glitches I suppose. Pet skunks are certainly unique pets, and indeed they do still smell without their projectile urine.

    Really? Where did you get it? I've had clams before and they are extremely hard to care for because of their special feeding requirements (plankton, rotifers, copepods).

    Wow, I would think they would make bad pets because of their social needs and their urge to dig.
