The Top Ten
OK, I do not HAVE a turtle, but I know that they are one of the best reptiles to own :)
(Research) :) good luck if you want to get a pet!
Rabbits are cute fuzzy but there are 2 types of rabbit group
Upright ears can be found to himalayan, florida white rabbits
Down ears can be found to the lop rabbits
But rabbits are not easy to take care of they need lot of space
They need a lot of bedding
They can die of touching lead to heart attack
They poop everywhere
They are so cute - OneWayStreet
Rabbits are by far the best small pet to have. Their feeling capivity is so big. My rabbit has lived for so long and is my best friend.
My Betta Fish Lives In A 1 Gallon Tank, He’s Happier Than He Was When He Was In That 5 Gallon Tank When That Person Gave The Betta To Me In The 5 Gallon Tank!
That quote is true. They say a dog is a mans best friend. They say a dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than it loves itself. Those are true. Rats are dogs too. Cause they just are so much like dogs. So.. A rat is a mans best friend. A rat is the only thing on earth that loves you more than it loves itself. Technically.

Very laid back and docile. Easy to care for, and very hardy. They can go a month without water and half a year without food, but don't do that! Do your research. Very, very affordable in the long run.
Very laid back and docile.
