What's the most unusual animal you've had as a pet? I used to have a hedgehog, but she passed away last year. They only live for about 3 years. Great little pets, but heartbreaking they don't live longer.

My goodness that is TOO cute...
In college I had bearded dragons, an eel, and some snakes as well.
Unusual? Now, I have two ducks in the city...

Umm.. Im not sure what would count as unusual?? I have had many, many dogs, 3 cats, hermit crabs, tropical fish, gold fish, gerbils, and 2 snakes. Right now my husband and I have 1 snake and 2 American Pit Bull Terriers.

Here is a pic of my first snake (ball python).. she died after she ate a sick mouse! I was sooooo mad at the people at the pet store.


Here is me and my boa a few years ago..


And.. this is a picture of our two American Pit Bull Terriers.. Brooklyn and Destiny!

Aww... your puppies are adorable! So how big does a python like your get? :O

Midnight... when I was younger, we had chcickens (living in the heart of the San Fernando Valley) just for their eggs. I remember my Dad paid the feed store extra for no males and after getting 3 roosters, that crowed all morning long (LOL), we gave all the chickens away to my Uncle. The neighbors just didn't appreciate their morning wake up calls!

I had a pet Skunk. He was born to be a fur coat, but the guy I got him from got him for his daughter. When she got a new interest he put Peppy up for sale and I got him. Had to buy a special permit. Peppy would play with my dogs!

My aunt had an Ocelot back in the 60's. They were quite fashionable and Ozzie lived to be almost 30. He was an amazing animal to know. At 5am every day, we took him to the park to climb trees and go for a long walk. You had to do it early because people tended to be scared around him. Whenever I visited, he would sleep with me and play just like a kitten. He was well socialized and very happy. When my aunt came home every day, he would meet her at the door with a toy. Ready to play.

My aunt left Ozzie to me in her will. She knew I loved him. Ozzie died a year before my aunt. I always said caring for Ozzie was one of the things that kept her going.

I bottle raised a baby coon, nursed a sick armadillo back to health, and had a baby opossum. They weren't exactly pets, but I did have them in my home!

I forgot about chickens, I had those as a kid too!!
My son hatched a chick a few years ago and the dog got it when it was still just a pullet!!
I love birds of any kind...I have had many over the years!
