    What Sort of Exotic Pet Would You Adopt?

    If you could have an out-of-the-ordinary pet, what sort would you get? I'd love to get a Caracal one day, if I had the space, time, and money.

    They always say they make terrible pets, but look at these overgrown pussycats:

    There are several I would like to have. A Bobcat, a Fox, or a Bear. I see Bobcats and Foxes around here all the time. There was a slim chance I could have gotten a whole litter of Bobcat kittens. Their mother got killed by a car, the state wildlife officers beat me to them. She was using an abandoned one room school house as a den. I knew there was a den in that old building cause I kept seeing her around the place all the time. I left them alone, but since she got killed I would have taken them in.

    Here is a pet North American Bobcat.

    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    In some Amazonian tribes monkeys are taken as pets. They assist their human owners, eg, breaking open nuts.



    I actually wonder why taking other primates as pets hasn't caught on more. Are they difficult to take care of? I could imagine them getting disruptive in a household especially when they grow bigger.

    When I was ten years old, I had a neighbor with a monkey. They are extremely obnoxious and troublesome. Just imagine having a miniature niglet in your house, only with much more dexterity and energy. Then there is the woman who got her face torn off by the chimpanzee... again, one could draw a behavior comparison to young negro thugs.

    Monkeys are loud and troublesome given free reign in someone's home: they cannot be caged. Callitrichids are most popular but they come down regularly witb a mysterious wasting disease unless fed gum (xanthan gum in zoos) with added roughage such as crushed sunflower seeds to simulate the wood they accidently ingest in the wild.

    Some people end up keep them in a tropical house so they can free roam, however they raid bird nests unless it is something like motmots which make their nests impenetrable. There is also the danger of the monkeys drowning if there is a pond, otherwise they get on fine with just about any other animal too big to kill. Exception: tamarins are more aggressive than the marmosets and callimico. Little pygmy marmosets do not seem to be nest raiders but are most difficult to feed.

    I used to know people who owned callitrichids and (illegally) squirrel monkeys. They make great companions but are not "pets". And caracals are tamable.

    Which kinds of exotic pet - fantasy zoo tier or the kind you can buy at large pet stores? A lot of which are now domesticated like corn snakes. Americans even think Mongolian gerbils and chinchillas are exotic pets. But if I had to choose realistically then surely a fennec, a short clawed otter or a palm civet - I think. Always was partial to river rays as well.

    Most clowns that have monkeys are the sort that really shouldn't own a fruit fly as a pet yet alone something complexly intelligent. They're the same sort of "geniuses" that think wolf-dog hybrids and large wild cat breeds make wonderful pets.

    I have a friend with a Capuchin monkey. The animal is alarmingly intelligent and definitely beyond the skills of an average pet owner. Good thing as a wildlife & animal rescue shelter manager, one that handles even big cats, he isn't an average pet owner. But this little fact is even more so nowadays when a growing number of pet owners I find can't even handle a dog.

    Hmm... chimps are apes a related but completely different species to monkeys by the way.

    I already own one. A Northern Goshawk under a falconer's license. My uncle is a falconer, I trained with him, and Balthazar was raised as a chick.

    Aside from that, I worked at a wildlife and animal rescue center. We got plenty of exotic "pets". Jesus, an African male lion, was no pet but that didn't mean he didn't want to be petted by his handlers.

    I am used to handling birds of prey. And chimps are monkeys. Hominoidea nests within Simia.
