What animal would you never want as a pet?

I'd keep anything if I had room for it and knew how to look after it except insects. Not overly fond of Spiders either, but when my son was young I agreed to him having one. We both read everything we could find on the subject first though. If you like watching frogs but not touching them, then mine would be an ideal compromise for you. I have five African Dwarf Frogs and the females are only 1 1/2 inches, the males 1 - 1 1/4 inches long. They are fully Aquatic and live in a fish tank. I think they are cute, they are fun to watch and they don't need a lot of care. You only feed them every other day! When you sit in front of the tank they come out from wherever they've been hidihg and then swim up and down the tank! Just like children 'showing off'. The males also sing! They need a lid on the tank though and I prefer a low water level. They can breath out of water for a short time and they can jump out of nets when being transfered!

I think some animals are better left alone and are not for pets. Unless you have a farm, don't have farm animals. Unless you live in the desert, don't have lizards, spiders, and snakes. Unless you live at the zoo, don't have monkeys, tigers, and lions. Unless you are hungry, don't have rabbits. Unless you are doing lab experiments, don't have rats, hamsters, or guinea pigs. Pretty much if you have the room, get a dog or a cat. They are about the best options for pets in my opinion and cats are even debateable.
