Strange Pets

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Alright, what kind of weird pets do you guys have?

My boyfriend's dog Piggy is a shar-pei/chow mix. Both parents were registered but they were NOT supposed to be mating together. Only two pups were rescued that we know of. Supposedly the rest were put on a box on the highway that said "free pups." Terrible story, and she's really a strange dog, but she's very loved.

that is a sad story but I am glad your boyfriend got to enjoy one.

But on to strange pets, my brother has an allegator! Thats kind of strange. His friend owns an allegator farm and my brother takes care of some of the abandoned baby gators til they grow old enough to take care of themselves.

I had an injured baby squirrel in my dorm room for a few nights (taken to a sanctuary). Other than that I never had any weird pets. I'm so glad your poor little doggy was saved from the terrible fate of its littermates!

I used to be into reptiles and sold many on the internet. Had up to 30 snakes, lots of lizards: Bearded Dragons, Day Geckos, Leopard Geckos, Fire Skinks. The only reptile I have left is my cool 40 pound sulcata tortoise.

I had several strange mammel pets too: prarie dog, southern flying squirrel, ferrets, short-tailed-opossum, rats, hedge hog. The only small pet I have left is a guinea pig that I adore but she is not so strange.

I think any pet can be strange depending on the way you look at it. A dog isn't that strange, but I think the combination of breeds is weird. So, definately all of your guy's pets count.

shelly - I knew a guy that had a flying squirrel once. Those things are awesome!

I don't think guinea pigs count as stragne, we have 2... what's strange is that the oldest one just celebrated his 9th birthday.

I have had many pets in the past.

My uncle owned Aligators, one point in time he had a crocidile. He did have a zebra, and now he has a Tiger.

I had in the past five squirrels, fostered them. Racoons, chipmunks, skunks, fostered them. And well now, Keishia. She's a wolf hybrid.

I do want a bengal, Serval or caracal in the future!

Ohhh do you have a picture of your wolf hybred? They are always so unique looking.

We have snakes and tarantulas (one was an Indian Ornamental)

I had a tiny little pet frog until it died all sprawled out on a rock one day but it dried out that way too and I put it in a little glass jar and wore it as a necklace.

Had a turtle once too but it isn't that weird of a pet.

I have had all kinds of pets over the years, some typical and some strange (or at least everyone else thought so! ) Gerbils, Guinea Pigs, Rabbits, Squirrels, Mice, Cats, assorted Lizards, Snakes, Turtles & Birds. But right now we have 1 Albino California Kingsnake & 3 Sugar Gliders in addition to the kitties. We are also in the process of looking for a Conure.
People think the sugar gliders are strange but I love them!
