If you could own any exotic animal, what would it be? Why would you want to own it? Would you want a zebra? A giraffe? A shark? A tree frog? A flamingo?

Me too, A Siberian Tiger, and I would want to get it when it was a cub, so that I could raise it myself, in my way, so that it was friendly and polite with people that came to visit, imagine, coming over to my house and having a massive white tiger, come over and rest it's head on your lap.

Haha yes that would just make my life xD I seen a programme like that once, where a man had got two tiger cubs and raised them, and they were really tame although he still kept them in a cage all the time when people were around just incase. Oh well I just have to put up with my spoilt "tiger" well cat xD I had to chase him right around the outside of the house today, as he was chasing another cat for a fight. He only has one eye, and I dont want him to lose his other one or we would have to get him put down. 3:

I would like to own lots and lots of dolphins. I have always been fascinated by how intelligent they are like humans.

Aw. Dolphins are adorable for sea creatures, aren't they? Have you swam with a dolphin? I haven't yet, but it seems awesome.

That's easy, a lion, a male one with all that fur..Why? Even as a kid I hated the cold and thought having a large animal like that with that fur to snuggle into would keep me warm...Now I like this animal because Jesus is depicted as the Lion of Judah..!!

Not only the fur, but lions are massive. They could be your bed!

hi stephanieAnn I would of course own a koala bear as they are so cute and cuddly andloving. I once was offered one by a pet'shop owner who a few minutes later was arrested for trying to sell exotic pets like the cute koaloa bear who was perched on my shoulder. the police officer , a woman, told me that owning a koala bear was against the city rules in phoenix and I told her since we lived in an apartment we could not have any pets of any kind. but that little koala bear was a real lovie. so that is what i would have.

Oh my God. That's amazing! I wish I could have had a koala bear perching on my shoulder! Too bad you didn't get to keep it. LOL

Exotic pets aren't pets! I don't care if they are reptiles,members of the frog family,fish,mammals or any toher type of animal I didn't mention! Especially wild animals! They are not domesticated to be pets! They can't be trusted! They are dangerous! I wish there was a perminate law in all 50 states that all exotic animals could not be bought or sold! They belong in the wild not in someone's home as a so-called pet!

I like to have white tiger cub. They are so cute and rare, I hope it can stay cub forever so I can have than cute cub look as long as I want ( its quite selfish act ). I think it will hard to grow wild animal at my house, I afraid I can not train it properly and might prey my lovely dog .

Once upon a time I would have had a long list of answers from peacock to koala but now I know that my having an animal of any kind, is not necessarily the best thing for the animal.

I am happy with the two miniature poodles I have got in my life. If I could have an exotic animal it would have to be a kangaroo. They are just so adorable looking. They jump along with their powerful back legs. When a female kangaroo has a joey he or she rides in her or hers mother's pouch. Really I think I would be better off not getting a kangaroo because of my allergies. My dogs are non moulting and kangaroos probably aren't.

I would like to have a trained eagle... or any exotic bird. It has been my dream to fly. Though it may not come true... I'll just have to put my attention on any exotic bird, if I may have one, and still enjoy my flying dreams reflected from my new flying pet...^_^

well i am in canada and for me, it would have to be a penguin! i once actually saw that you could buy them online (for a couple of thousand) and since i am in canada, i figure it is cold here at least 6 months of the year so pengie would feel right at home.
