61 Slugs

A lot of people are AFRAID of them, but I found a slug on my soccer ball and I wanted to keep it as a pet...

Most people are afraid of them but they are funny

Gross but awesome

Are you kidding? slugs are my worst nightmare and phobia! A hazard, not a pet *ew*

62 Chameleon Chameleon Chameleons or chamaeleons are a distinctive and highly specialized clade of old world lizards with 202 species described as of June 2015. These species come in a range of colors, and many species have the ability to change colors.

They are awesome creatures, except they give a disease called salmonella, you can wash your hand or shirt if touches, BUT are really awesome pets!

All animals can carry salmonella so people who don't like them are just trying to scare you off they are great pets

Why is this placed at the bottom? They are a much better pet than a wolf and should be placed above the wolf

Best pet ever!

63 Spiders

So the Tarantula is most commonly kept, and I love spiders, I used to want one! But then I learnt that these animals are social, and their lifespans are a lot shorter in captivity because they die of loneliness or stress when kept in cages, especially since they are left alone without another spider friend. So yeah, these are not good pets but I'd expect them to be ranked higher than a wolf either way

I used to own tarantulas. I used to let my little girl crawl on my hand. I loved her! I didn't know that they needed a friend. I wished I would have known that.

Spiders are mean bad pets

My stepdad's cousin had a tarantula in a tank in his kitchen. I reckon he should've had another to pair with it so it wouldn't have died sooner.

64 Squid Squid Squid are cephalopods of the order Teuthida, which comprises around 304 species. Like all other cephalopods, squid have a distinct head, bilateral symmetry, a mantle, and arms.

I kept a squid in my kitchen sink for 2 years, really easy to look after, just hard to do the dishes, just don't use detergent with peanuts.

Can it be in stank with fish

When I lived in a pineapple under the sea, I once had a pet squid. He was so cute

65 Cockroach

I've never had a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach but I have held on before. Yes, they are awesome and DO love to be handled and played with unlike most cockroaches who are harmful and just want to be left alone. I would actually consider keeping one as a pet... This is coming from someone who absolutely HATES insects, arachnids, and pretty anything else with six or more legs besides the Madagascar Hissing Cockroach and RolliePollies.

Madagascar hissing cockroach I've heard are great and a lot of people hate the idea of having a pet cockroaches but there really cool pets to have

Really great pets, the store bought kind love to be interacted with and are quite docile.

66 Rats Rats Rats are various medium-sized, long-tailed rodents of the superfamily Muroidea. "True rats" are members of the genus Rattus, the most important of which to humans are the black rat, Rattus rattus, and the brown rat, Rattus norvegicus.

How did pet rocks rank higher than rats? Seriously, they're my favorites. They're second only to dogs in how affectionate they are, and relatively very easy to take care of. The only thing about them that might be difficult is that you need to spend time with them every day, but they're so lovable and fun it won't be tedious. They love to lick and cuddle their home mans -- more than I can say for most hamsters and rabbits! Sweeter and better lap pets than cats and just as clean and easy to take care of. And very smart! They can learn tons of tricks. Honestly, the only downside is that they only live for three years, but I guess that's good if you don't like commitment.

Rats are the best pets. I have had such a huge variety of animals. I love dogs, don't get me wrong. My boxer is my baby. But rats are so sweet and feisty. They are funny to watch because they amaze you with how smart they are. Each one has their own personality. I've had 7 rats now and each time one passes it completely breaks my hear. All girls except for 1 boy. People tend to freak out but I promise you, get your own rat as a baby and you will be attached. I have so many friends that have gotten a rat to feed to their shake and ended up getting rid of the snake because they became attached to the rat lol. I promise you, you will not regret owning a rat.

Most people think that rats are gross! Wrong! Pet rats are extremely clean animals and I have never seen my rat dirty. They are low maintenance and are so sweet! Trust me if you have a pet rat you will never regret it. The only down sider to these cute little things is that they have a short life span.

How are rats ranked so far back!? They're literally like really small dogs. They're super affectionate, super clean, loyal, smart, affordable, and let's not forget adorable

67 Ants Ants

Keeping an ant farm is cool, just make sure you buy an ant farm, don't use and old container you poked holes through, get an actual ant farm, I tried keeping an ant farm once but since I didn't invest in a proper ant farm they all got out so lesson learned is invest in an actual and farm and they will make interesting pets but not hands-on ones

Ants are small. Just keep it in sight and don't feed it Turkey or other ants after midnight or it will turn into an evil gremlin

Literally easiest pets ever

We could step on them.
