I love critters.  Dh and I have had all sorts of animals over the years including: 2 dogs, several cats, a wolf, a turtle, lots of fish, frogs, a ball python, a gecko, and a whole family of rats.

A wolf????? Well to answer your question yes. I am a veterinary tech so it's no wonder I have & had many pets. I mostly grew up with dogs because my Dad was allergic to cats but I've also had birds, fish, ginuea pigs, a hedgehog, hermit crabs, & a turtle. I actually still have my box turtle from when I was a kid. I've had him for 20 years! I now have him & a rescue dog named Dingo (because she looks like a dingo or a fox).

I just had someone else tell me they wanted a hedgehog, I had no idea you could even own them as pets!  I think it might be illegal to own them as pets here in California.  Yes we had a wolf for a few years but no matter what we did to our fence she kept finding ways out of the yard so we ended up having to find her a new home.  Luckily the lady we gave her to is really awesome and lets us come visit her as much as we want.

Growing up I caught things like toads, frogs and turtles and kept them as pets until I let them go. I would also keep a baby bird here and there for a while before letting it go.

I've also had dwarf hamsters, a teddy bear hamster, a couple rats, a couple rabbits, fish and other aquatic creatures, many cats and a few dogs.

I've almost always had cats-we have 2 indoor cats right now. When I was younger I owned hamsters & a chubby dalmation ;p

 My first pet(s) as a kid were fish. Some goldfish and some other kinds - I don't remember what they all were. Then I moved on to hamsters. Then I had dogs the rest of my time with my parents. When I moved in with DH, we got pet rats and hadn't had any pets at all since they passed until recently. We just got DD a couple mice.

I want a chameleon so bad, but the cheapest ones we can find are $80 :(

I really want a chameleon too, but they are pricey!
