What is the most unique pet you have ever owned?
How did you come to choose it?
The most unique pet we ever owned was a makech (? not sure of the spelling or pronunciation) bug given our daughter by an aunt. In Mexico, rural children catch this large cockroach-like beetle, which derives all its nutrients from damp rotting logs. They then super-glue little beads and bangles onto its shell, including a tiny gold chain resembling a leash, and sell them for profit to visitors and tourists. By day or evening, you take the bug out of its terrarium of wet rotting wood and pin it to your latest outfit by its gold chain, where it will casually stroll about your arm and shoulder and neck like an animated buggy brooch!
If the tiny Indian turtle is considered unique. i had one years ago. Without knowing whether it was a girl or boy; i had named it Dakota. It died peacefully in the bedroom. I don't think i'll get another pet. This one is the second time i had to grieve over a personally lost pet of my own.
My aunt had a deer that kicked her at age 7. My uncle had a monkey.
Well, not exactly unique but i keep caterpillars - in particular the lime caterpillar.
In high school (when my classroom was just next to the spice garden) I'd have more than 50 caterpillars under my desk in the classroom. At home, we put them in a fishtank that was leaky and couldn't hold water anymore.
