I do!! I see so many posts about cats and dogs, and I’m just wondering if anyone owns any pets that are… a bit out of the norm? Don’t get me wrong I LOVE cats and dogs, but SO and I have been doing apartment living for many years now where the little furbabies are not welcome. 🙁 We are both cat lovers and have promised ourselves a kitty of our own when we finally settle down and are not roaming from apartment to apartment.
In the meantime though…. we have a pet snake!! Yup! He’s a 4 year old California Kingsnake, and I love him to pieces. I would post a pic of him, but I know a lot of people (including some of my friends) are squeamish with reptiles so I don’t want to freak anyone out. He’s beautiful though and much better suited for apartment living.

I used to have a leopard gecko. He was pretty cool but he got impacted w/ sand and died after about 2 years. That was pretty much the end of caged pets for me. If they require a cage and can’t cuddle, I’m not getting it 😉

We have a saltwater aquarium. So we have some “exotic” clown fish!

Ooh! Post pictures! I’d imagine the post title of exotic pets is a heads up it’s not going to be fluffy puppies and kittens! 😉

+1 for pictures of the kingsnake!
I think whoever clicks on this thread should be expecting to see pictures of snakes =p
I had an iguana named “Sanzo” but…
Two years ago while Fiance and I were living in Idaho for the summer he died =(
I think my mom didn’t feed him like she said she would, she didn’t like him too much.
Also I think her and Fiance were in cahoots, he hated my iguana and is TERRIBLY sqeamish of reptiles.
I wish I could get a snake! Fiance would flip though.

I have a Mustang! Not sure if she counts as exotic or not, but she’s out of the ordinary… she’s from a herd in Wyoming and was rounded up as a yearling, and then sat in a holding pen for almost two years because no one wanted to adopt her. Not sure why as she’s the sweetest girl!

Fiance put in an order for those Savannah cats. They are the ones that are domestic cats that are bread with African Serval’s. He has been wanting one for a very long time and we decided to get one after the wedding and we are all settled in and apparently there is almost a year waiting list so he got his order in last month. Luckily my hometown in Oklahoma is a head quarters so a large breeding facility so we arent having to pay an arm and a leg for shipping.

Wow, I didn’t know about those Savannah cats. I had better not show my FI-he’ll want one!

They say they are actually kind of more like dogs. They love water and swimming, they play fetch, lick you on the face (with their scratchy little tongues) They seem really neat!

I have a dog…but I swear she’s half squirrel. Does that count?

At one point in time I had a bearded dragon and 2 red eyed tree frogs. Now we have a dog, cat, sucker fish, and a ghost knife fish. I really want another dog but its our dog doesn’t get along with other dogs so we can only have one for now until I can either get Cesar Milon over here or figure it out myself!

Holy poop batman! I just looked up the savannah cats and read that some can cost up to $15,000.. Yikes!

I had a flying squirrel growing up! Actually, I had 2, the 2nd came after the 1st died. They’re way better than a hamster! 🙂
I’m actually glad there aren’t any snake pictures, they absolutely terrify me! But I’m glad I could contribute my own exotic without getting nightmares so… thank you 🙂
ps, I’m sitting on my feet just thinking about them… eakjbfgljaehwbfglieahbgjhvb

I don’t thing our pet is all that exotic, but the vet classifies him as one –
His name is Baby Buffalo. We’re apartment dwellers too. Husband is allergic to cats and our current lifestyle wouldn’t be fair to a dog, so Baby Buffalo it is. He’s a former show guinea we rescued this past summer. Love him.
