Madagascar Hissing Cockroach
You have got to be kidding me? These things can be pets. Not happening in my world. But hey look at this way, they will replace dogs as the most loyal pet post a nuclear holocaust, since they can survive one.
The cockroach, despite its displeasing appearance is quite popular among enthusiast for being docile and hardy in nature. Having a strong exoskeleton, allows for it to be tough as well, thank God it doesn’t have any wings, otherwise it would have definitely taken over the world.
Another reptile on the list, we are pleased to inform you which doesn’t move so soften. Having a very slow moving speed will almost make it appear to be a plastic model. You will find the iguana usually spending time relaxing, sun basking and watching you with its deep spooky eyes.
What a surprise, they are Herbivorous! I thought Godzilla’s distant cousin would be a meat eater. Looks like being vegan is the new fad even among reptiles!
If girls remember the crab Sebastian from Ariel, they will definitely want one in the form of the Hermit Crab, they make excellent first pets to be kept in an aquarium for children. But be advised, marine life is very sensitive and requires precision care.
Though you will find loads in your local pet shop, once bought you do need them to be in a large enough aquarium for optimal comfort and prevention from imminent death through suffocation. Hermit Crabs require high levels of humidity in their enclosure which is usually not maintained.
Nothing can be more aww inspiring than gazing in those deep brown eyes. This tree dwelling marsupial from Africa is very agile and made for the tree branches. The last thing these small animals will expect is a small tight cage to be in.
Bush Baby’s require wide open branched type areas to live in their own with the least stress. Though most house owners are not able to provide the environment. It’s advised this animal stays in the zoo, where it can’t be endangered.
If you have a backyard with an infestation of a lot of ant and termite mounds, well in that case there can be no better natural exterminator than the Southern Tamandua, basically an anteater.
Anteaters are very cute looking, from their pencil necked pointy faced cuddliness. Trust me, if you had a dog lick you, the Tamandua’s tongue will be longer than expected and make your face sticky as a glue stick. They are very attention seeking animals and show varying moods if neglected.
If you have an admiration for squirrels, a glider version will be even better. These marsupials love to run on their wheel. Considering the environmental policy, a permit is required if you wish to own this type of animal.
No matter the diet, the glider requires fresh fruits and nuts for healthy functioning. Their high metabolism requires nutrient rich food, which can be found in only fresh foods. They make very good pets but if you really want to see them glide, let them climb high up and then see them glide to the next tree.
