    Exotics

    123
    It seems most people here seem to have dogs. I grew up with dogs, but the apartment building I live in doesnt allow them. I do have 5 snakes, a bearded dragon, a chinchilla and a sandfish. In the past Ive also had red eyed tree frogs, clown frogs, pac man frogs, uromastyx, a ferret and my daughters hamsters. I like most animals. I'll try and get some pics up when I can unless the snakes freak anyone out.

    I used to have two African water frogs. The expected life span on them was "about a month." We gave them away seven years later.

    I'm not really a fan of snakes, I just don't dig on lizards. I'm not squeamish, just don't like the spawn of Satan.

    Here's my ferret. People are just as ignorant of pet laws as they are of gun laws. "Aren't ferrets illegal?"

    I have a Chinchilla and a ball python. Both are very good pets to have. Just keep them apart.

    I had 3 pirahna. Not sure if that's considered exotic, but you couldn't get them anywhere around here.

    My ferret holds her own against my dog (beagle/shepherd mix), I've heard they scare cats pretty easily. They are carnivores and don't back down too easily.

    Used to have a ball-python. He was awesome. Then we moved and the parents made me get rid of him

    When I was a teen, I made money by breeding ferrets for fun and profit. Now I just have a fat Aussie cattledog, though.

    When we were in Michigan ferrets were illegal, That changed in the mid to late nineties I think. We moved to NC in '92 and have had ferrets on a few occasions. They were great fun! We called them Carpet Sharks.

    I don't really have any interest in ferrets, I'm a dog fan, but I don't see any reason for them to be illegal, check out the movie "kindergarten cop"....my states "governator" has one, and I say, if Arnold can do it, why not everyone else? LOL

    In college one night, we got drunk and decided that we needed a pirahna. Apparently it was a good party that night because a week later we still thought it was a good idea so me and two buddy's called a bunch of pet shops until we found one that carried them so we went and bought one.

    Some of the best fun was placing bets on which goldfish it would eat first.
