Top Ten Animals You Wouldn't Want As a Pet


The Top Ten

1 Brazilian Wandering Spider Brazilian Wandering Spider

Haha I'm 12 and not a single spider has scared me ever man you people gotta man up instead of running away from spiders I get close and try to observe them. It seems most people are scared of spiders instead of other obscure bugs which belong in any nightmare.

Well, this spider happens to be the most deadly. I don't mind spiders, as long as long as they're not venomous (I've been living with a cane spider as a roommate for a while now, and I've grown fond of it). - Emberflight_of_StormClan

The most deadly spider in existence, you don't want get bitten by this guy because 33% of it's bites are venomous and this spider has one of the most deadly venomous bites.

Dude,you know these spiders can kill you in a single bite.You'd be wise to ignore them. - Cazaam

Don't have this spider as a pet people because its very dangerous plus you can die from this spider also how could you even try - skyelolwut

I'm brazilian ;-; - Urutano

2 Hippopotamus Hippopotamus The common hippopotamus, or hippo, is a large, mostly herbivorous mammal in sub-Saharan Africa, and one of only two extant species in the family Hippopotamidae, the other being the pygmy hippopotamus.

What's funny about this is that there is a pet hippopotamus existing named Jessica. However, a wild one wouldn't be nearly as nice. Hippos kill 500 people a year and it wouldn't be nice to have it defecate everywhere. Seriously, have you seen how those things poop? - Cazaam

Hippopotamus' don't kill 500 people a year, it's closer to 3,000. Get your facts right.

Hippos are the true kings of the animal kingdom. They will mess you up - ryanrimmel

They will either drown you, bite you, or crush you. Enough said. - Haumea

To be honest I never thought of them as dangerous...that is unless you got closer to one then you might be in a world of pain

3 Mosquito Mosquito Spanish for "small fly," mosquitoes are flies that have been known to cause various diseases . A sample of diseases caused by mosquitoes: malaria, yellow fever, Chikungunya, West Nile virus, dengue fever, filariasis, Zika virus .

Heh. Do you guys know how many people died from mosquitos? More than the deaths caused by all the animals above this one put together. Especially diseased mosquitos. I can put you in a room with a few Brazilian wandering spiders and a few diseased mosquitos. The spiders won't even notice you. Unless you poke 'em. The mosquitos will latch on you, and unless you kill them, you probably can get some malaria or Zika.

Spread disease, not attractive and if they carry malaria will became a race to the hospital for the person bitten. - Cazaam

I love petting my mosquito! He's just so much fun to play with!

However, they don't get very old. It's so sad when they pass on... That is why I no longer want mosquitos as pets, and rather get an animal with a longer lifespan. Like a hippo! - Maplestrip

Who would ever want to have a mosquito as a pet?

4 Saltwater Crocodile Saltwater Crocodile The saltwater crocodile, also known as the estuarine crocodile, Indo-Pacific crocodile, marine crocodile, sea crocodile or informally as saltie, is the largest of all living reptiles, as well as the largest riparian predator in the world.

You'd have trouble controlling this beast if it gets mad. With it's massive jaws and overall strength it could easily kill a human. - Cazaam

5 Green Anaconda

Anaconda don't want none less you got buns hun

I've had several anacondas as pets, and they are excellent, although very sensitive to cold temperatures.

Anacondas are great pets - yatharthb

Snakes are the STUPIDEST animal alive

6 Skunk Skunk Skunks are mammals known for their ability to spray a liquid with a strong odor. Different species of skunk vary in appearance from black-and-white to brown or cream colored, but all have warning coloration.

Gives you that pleasant odour of burning tires and rotten eggs... Yummy! - Cazaam

Some people actually have skunks as pets but they first have the odor glands removed from their bodies so they can't spray. - Mcgillacuddy

I have one it never spray me it name Flower I have a duck it name Daisy they bff!

Smells terrible! Wouldn't be so awful without the scent.

8 Leech Leech Leeches are segmented worms that belong to the phylum Annelida and comprise the subclass Hirudinea. Like the oligochaetes, such as earthworms, leeches share a clitellum and are hermaphrodites.

Spreads disease and why would you want a pet leech anyway? - Cazaam

9 Cassowary Cassowary The cassowaries are ratites in the genus Casuarius and are native to the tropical forests of New Guinea, nearby islands, and northeastern Australia.

A bird with so much power it can disembowel a human with a single kick. Ouch! - Cazaam

When park rangers feed these birds they have to wear police riot gear.
Fast strong can jump 5 feet high and aggressive with razor sharp talons

10 Poison Dart Frog

Jumps all over the place and will kill you if you invade it's space. - Cazaam

It's beautiful, yes, but it can kill with its poison - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

They are only deadily if you feed them red ants that's where the poison comes from.

The Contenders

11 Lion Lion The lion is one of the big cats in the genus Panthera and a member of the family Felidae. The commonly used term African lion collectively denotes the several subspecies in Africa.

Who wouldn't want a friendly one of these as a pet?

What about Kevin Richardson?

12 Hyena Hyena Hyenas or hyaenas are any feliform carnivoran mammals of the family Hyaenidae /haɪˈɛnᵻdiː/. With only four extant species, it is the fifth-smallest biological family in the Carnivora, and one of the smallest in the class Mammalia.

Hyena? Not wanting as pet. You can tame these (at least the less vicious male hyenas)

Why not! Joker and Harley Quinn had some! - dude2001

13 Dog Dog The domestic dog is a wolf-like canid in the genus Canis, and is the most widely abundant terrestrial carnivore.

Uh... Chihuahua is a dog breed. So, it's okay to have a chihuahua as a pet. - MLPFan

No way chihuahuas is a bad pet they are cute and tiny

What's wrong with having a chihuahua?

That's bull

14 Black Mamba

They are super tough. They are one of the most toughest snakes in the world.

15 Vulture

They stink, they scavange and they poop on their own feet! Why would you want a gross, bald bird, wandering around all day pooping everywhere, in YOUR HOUSE? I know I wouldn't

16 Naked Mole Rat Naked Mole Rat

The most ugly creature of the face of the planet. Why would you want one of these as a pet? - Cazaam

17 Python Snake
18 Piranha Piranha

This should be in the top 10's because piranhas are very deadly

19 Red Back Spider

Like the black widow spider, but the austrlain versoin. And Australia has the most dangerous spiders in the world. I know that because I live in austrlia my self. I also think it would be impossible to keep one of them as a pet...

20 Centipede Centipede Centipedes are arthropods belonging to the class Chilopoda of the subphylum Myriapoda. They are mainly carnivorous and they prey apron insects, spiders, small birds and rodents, and even other centipedes.

Sounds interesting, I'll try this someday - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

Okay, there are a lot of them in Hawaii, and I've seen enough for this to be a confirmed "NOPE". - Emberflight_of_StormClan
