I'm not sure but I know it didn't turn out as well as he would have liked.

As far as unusual I've had camains, snakes, monitors, hedge hog, and baby sat a tiger cub and a wallaby. I've kept gars, starfish, seahorses, and too many other pets to remember at the moment. Crayfish, lizards, salamanders, what ever I could have. The 4 ft camian was bought with birthday money from my mom. She WAS NOT thrilled when I got home with that. But she helped me set up a habitat for it. I still have scar on my hand where I got in the way of his teeth!

I have had a pet tarantula before. He was friendly, so he let me handle him. I really want a giant african millipede. I would like to ask, has anyone owned one of these? Unfortunately, they recently made them illegal to sell in the pet stores. It doesn't make sense, because they are very friendly, are non carnivorous plant eaters only, and do no bite unlike centipedes. Aren't they so cute?....

My boss owns a ranch full of exotic and lesser known animals, but since he's 65 and cant do all that he once could, he had to hire someone to take care of our newest addition: 2 tiger cubs. That someone is me! (: I LOVE my job! So even though Rocky and Jasmine aren't mine, I do consider them my kids and they beat any and every hedgehog, snake, armadillo, etc. I love them so much.. If you're reading this and get a chance to visit them BEFORE August 9th at Stapp's Circle "S" Ranch, you should. You can play with them and bottle-feed them... They are absolutely incredible.

Well I've had dogs & cats my whole life & that's all we have right now, 3 cats & 3 dogs. But we've also had a couple of guine (sp?) pigs, a couple of ferrets, some birds, fish, a rabbit, hampsters, gerbils, & some mice. And I think I attempted a couple of catipelliars, & some fishing worms. Nothing to unusual, right?

OOPS! I almost forgot my pet rock! Seriously. My best friend's great-grandfather gave me, her, & another friend of ours each a pet rock. Defiently the lowest maintance & quiestest pet I've ever had.

I had a cutie 25 years ago, could almost seem to be wagging a (non) tail when he seen me with a bag of goldfish. He was very gentle and social with me.
