I'm curious at what types of strange pets other people own. The only strange ones I owned were a newt, African fat-tailed gecko (similar to the leopard gecko), prey mantis', wolf spiders I caught in the house, leopard moth (very pretty), sugar gliders, baby snapping turtle that was sick but didn't make it, and raised a blue jay that a cat killed the parents and knocked the nest out of the tree. The pets I know of other people owning would be my father-in-law's camels, lamas he use to have, fallow deer, and use to have ostriches. His brother has buffalo, wild boars (he had them before they became illegal so he can still have them but can't sale or give them away), use to have bobcats, and their sister has a miniture horse. Forgot to add that another woman I know has a pet piranha that was her sons. Had two but it ate the other one.
