What's the strangest animal to have as a pet?

From pet skunks to rats, what's the strangest animal to have as a pet?

Could be your own pet or someone else's - we want to hear it :yep:

Moved to animals and pets

Couldn't tell you to be honest, maybe a bear or kangaroo (if someone was willing to do that).

I Wouldn't have a rat or mouse (unless it was Jerry the Mouse from Tom and Jerry) as a pet, no way.

Oops sorry! I need more sleep :redface:

True, neither - I just heard today from someone that they had really cute rats for pets! I personally can't see rats in a positive light but it may be due to bad experiences :colondollar:

I find rats and mice to be unhygienic (I'm aware that dogs could do the same thing) if that makes sense/wouldn't want them in my home.
There's a couple I've seen around a number of times who have a pet skunk.
pet Shark is probably a weird pet to have
An elephant. Need a great space and lot of foods to keep. As if someone would keep an elephant as a pet.

Keeping rats got so popular. I know two people in my friend circle who have them at home.

Its smelly. No matter how clean your place for them is. And just wanna share, I didnt get to keep them for long. My mother is strongly against it

If I say rats, I mean rats then. I don't confuse rats with mice.

I had a crazy parrot


What do you mean with "crazy"? a parrot is an ordinary pet. And an exotic one.
