    Here is my list:
    6 adult rabbits (English Spot, New Zealand, Mini-Rex, Rex) and 6 kits (Mini-Rex/Rex cross)
    6 sugar gliders (1 breeding pair, one mother and son temporary pair, and 2 joeys)
    1 domestic mouse
    1 wild mouse
    2 bearded dragons
    1 rescued ball python
    1 red tegu
    1 catfish
    1 brim (evil fish!)
    a few mollies and creek guppies (with babies on the way)
    1 crazy cat
    and 25 chicks will be added to the mix on March 13th.

    I've had nearly everything that stays small, and some lizards that don't stay so small.

    The two "coolest" pets I've ever had were #1 a male savannah monitor aptly named Trouble, and #2 a male veiled chameleon named Frank.

    The most rewarding pets I've ever had are the sugar gliders, especially the ones that I was privileged to rescue. They are extremely intelligent creatures and extremely silly.

    So, what about you?

    PS – In the past, I’ve had mice, rats, gerbils, spiny mice, degus, pygmy mice, corn snakes, rat snakes, ribbon snakes, garter snakes, various geckos, tree frogs, dogs, anoles, crawdads, freshwater shrimp, and a baby robin.
