When I was at uni a couple of my housemates bought some fish. It got me thinking fish aren't really a problem but what small animals (up to the size of a rabbit) would you really not like your housemates to have in the house, for me it's a scorpion.

If ferrets are counted as smaller than a rabbit, then definitely ferrets. I like looking at them and I think if I handled them more often I'd get used to them, but it freaks me out seeing them move. And they smell if kept indoors.

Scorpions and tarantulas are actually very timid! I wouldn't have one as a pet because they're quite boring, they don't really move and the ones I've looked after have scuttled away as soon as I opened their cages.

Haha tarantula (in case it escaped - useful in a Home Alone scenario, but otherwise... )
Actually, pretty much any spider (lol and my little brother has a pet giant spider he found in the ivy. She's lasted a while now; I'm afraid I have her and her *two* egg-sacks on a death-list.)
Other than spiders... um, maybe hornets, although no idea what nutter would keep 'em for pets!
Also, grimy ferrets/rats. I have a friend who has kept both and let's just say her bedroom smells of a "perfume" of a kind

Literally most of the time, it will be hiding under a rock not out in the open! Scorpions are boring. Giant millipedes are very cool, though, they are more active when you pick them up.
