Strangest animal?

What is the strangest animal you, or someone you know, has ever kept as a pet?

One of my aunts lives on a farm and likes to "rescue" animals who have been hurt somehow. She ended up with the meanest goose alive, and she LOVES that little @$$h0!e! She keeps him in the fenced in part of her front yard and he attacks everyone that comes through the gate...including her!

A friend of mine keeps all sorts of imported "creepy crawlies" like hissing cockroaches and gigantic millipedes...YUCK!

I'll stick with my cat!

  • LOL! I'm with you on this one! My boys' father had a turantula when we were dating. Yuck! I once dated a guy who had an albino python. Liked to hang out under his fridge. Needless to say, he had to get my refills! (the guy not the snake-lol)

  • Hmmm... I've known people who kept lots of reptiles. One of my neighbours at the cottage had a pet raccoon- they rescued him as a baby when they saw him at the side of the road beside his mom who had been hit by a car.:( The most uncommon pet I've had is my hedgehogs- I had three over the course of about 12 years, Hawthorne, Bramble, and Thistle.

  • The "strangest" I've had are rats, but it's not that strange to me. lol I'd LOVE to have a pet skunk! Did you know they come in many color patterns; not just black/white? I think they are soooo cute! lol

  • OMG! I forgot about the skunks. One of my father's friends keeps two of them. I guess you can have their stink sacks (I'm sure there is a more technical name for them lol) removed and they act like a cat...not for me though!
