What is the strangest pet you have owned?

The title says it all. I am curious to see what strange creatures the people on this board have kept. I used to have pet mice. They were the cutest little friendly things. I miss them.

I used to have a pair of rats. They were hand reared, and so tame they would come to call and enjoyed sitting on the sofa with me watching TV.

The strangest pet I ever had, I think, was Murphy my tarantula.

Strangest pets would probably be the 50 tarantulas I had at one point. I've also had rats, iguanas and hermit crabs but they arn't quite as strange.

idk if this is strange but to most people having a pig in your house who sits on the sofa and gets stuff after we were done eating dinner would be odd to most.. I had a pot bellied pig when I was younger.

OMG I have had so many pets...
here's a list of my exotics:
brazilian rainbow boa (still have her)
ball python (still have him too)
leopard geckos (got those)
crested geckos
panther geckos
water dragons...(basically a LOT of reptiles)
rock crabs (the kind you find in the ocean)...
rats (still got a pair)

The list goes on but those are the ones I can remember off the top of my head.

which one is most exotic or strange I Don't know... take your pic I guess...

I'm my spare time I ride dragons and runners, practice my Harper skills, talk to dolphins and hang with MasterHarper Robinton.

I had a mantis once, but someone told me that was illegeal. So I let him free. (I only had him for like a week)
I forgot about my snakes. Those are fun. My boyfriend is terrified of them though. So no snakes anymore :(

I have always wanted a hedgehog or a ferret though

i am getting a hedgehog in a few weeks, once they are old enough. I have had a tarantula, and in my house we have tons of reptiles. And, it is not an odd pet, but i have a pretty rare purebred cat. A siberian.
