What did you name your exotic pets?

Besides cats & dogs, what kind of unusual pet do you have? We have a bearded dragon named Gunther.

  • This isn't unusual for us but some people look at us weird when we tell them what we have. We have horses, cows and chickens. But we have one chicken that is almost like a dog. He's very friendly towards people. We do have a ton of dogs and every time we go outside they all follow you around like a herd. It's pretty funny.

    Growing up I had a pet rat. I was the kind of kid that if I could catch it I would bring it home. So we had almost everything. My dad had an alligator growing up until it got too big. I guess it just runs in the family.

  • We have two rats named Shimmy and Shake. They're awesome. But most people always think of sewer rats when you tell them you have pet rats. lol. They're actually very smart and usually sit still longer than hamsters or other small critters. I think it's fun to walk around town with them. :)

  • Well, I have these little spiders from outside that insist on coming into the house, so I guess they want to be pets. lol Unfortunately, they don't live long. :)
