Top Ten Best Pets


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Pigs

Pigs are the best! You can teach them tricks! And no they are not dirty like everyone says. You can train them to be potty trained too. They are very friendly and affectionate. They are nice are kids and wouldn't hurt them! I would very much recommend a pig!

Pigs are the cutest animals! They also are the smartest pets. They can learn tricks faster than dogs! I really want a little teacup pig, but obviously no one wants a pig in the house. They are very loyal and loving animals. They are also usually pink! All pigs aren't always dirty and covered with mud! Only when you let them. They also don't shed usually or at least not much. They are a fabulous pet.

They are friendly and cute! And clean! I make up little cartoon characters and most of them are pigs, like: agent Friendly, Sheldon, Loof, and Lawn.

Cool and clever animals

22 Monkeys

I have a passion for monkeys, especially finger monkeys, but you need to understand and read up on them before you take one home.

YOU can't KEEP WILD ANIMALS AS PETS. It's awful that we would snatch them from the wild and keep them cooped up in a cage. If you want a pet monkey or tiger, volunteer at a rescue center.

I love monkeys but I wish I had 1

OK, no offense, but I think monkeys are wild, and should never be kept as pets...

23 Chickens

I have 12 cool chickens :) mines love to be petted and they always give free eggs!

They lay wonderful eggs and are as loyal as a dog! They are the most entertaining pets ever! I can't believe these aren't number one! I mean, the eggs they lay pay for the care of the chickens in around a year and taste amazing!

I have 4 chickens, (3 hens, 1 rooster). I love them, the hens lay eggs FOR FREE! They have cute patterns on their feathers. Chickens will eat the grass and critters that roam around in your yard, not to mention, they are such wonderful and entertaining pets. - Catacorn

Chickens are by far the best pets. they are great pets for kids and also very loyal. We have had 10 chickens and they are amazing. We now have three and we have had a chicken for 10 YEARS! unfortunately she died. why are lions and tigers on this list whoever put them on the list are the craziest people in the world.. Please vote chickens they are the best pets ever

24 Iguana Iguana Iguana is a genus of omnivorous lizards native to tropical areas of Mexico, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean.

I have one and its awesome

25 African Dwarf Frog

They are easy fun and cute

This goes in the frog category

26 Bearded Dragon Bearded Dragon

Beardies are very easy to care for. They are easy going, don't bite, and are very aware of what goes on in the room, much like a dog. Very loveable and actually enjoy a snuggle. Good for people with allergies-no hair or dander! Highly recommended, even my 2-year old loves him!

Go berdies! I have a sixth moth old Beardie at home and I have to say, I love him! He's a foot and a third already and still growing! although, he can get a little smelly at times, he still is my sweet boy. When I first got him, I almost thought he would be like a wild lizard without a real distinguished personality, boy, was I wrong! He loves to curl up on the couch like a dog for naps, explore, and be down right mischievous! I would advise this pet to anyone who has dog or cat allergies and would like a sweet animal to curl up in their lap occasionally and add a little spice to their life!

A dragon that has a beard! That's another story but an awesome one

These little beardies are adorable but if you get them from a bad pet seller they can be a little aggressive so be careful

27 Hermit Crabs

They may pinch you, but they still are awesome. I have two in the same cage and they get along great so if you get them then you don't have to worry about them eating each other! They are also very cool to watch because the like to climb on the walls of their cage.

I just gotten a Hermit crab like a week ago and I got him a nice big container and so far I just love them my hermit crabs name is herbie thinking of getting a Nother one because I read about how they get lonely.

I have 3 hermit crabs all in one tank it's so fun just to sit and watch how they move and climb and interact with each other they are a great pet in my opinion they should be in the top 10

I had a hermit crab when I was a baby, #numberone

28 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.

You can get any chameleon at your local pet store. They need a good sized humid and wet cage with a heat light. They do need plant, both artificial and real, to climb on and eat and hide. They change color so it may be hard to find them. They also need plenty of bugs such as crickets to eat.

I love them when they change colors.

OK, you can get one if you WANT to, but they get freaked out easily, get one, hold it, and I would not say the next day it is alive...

29 Skunks

Skunks make strange but wonderful pets.

Skunks are cool looking but smelly

We have one! They're cool!

Skunks are horrible!

30 Squirrel Squirrel Squirrels are members of the family Sciuridae, a family that includes small or medium-size rodents. The squirrel family includes tree squirrels, ground squirrels, chipmunks, marmots, flying squirrels, and prairie dogs amongst other rodents.

I found the little baby squirrels at the edge of the street one day and I adopted them so now they come up to our house and we feed them and I love squirrels

For a pet? That ain't right


31 Dolphins

They are one of my favorite animals

Not a pet, but they are extremely intelligent and beautiful creatures. My favorite animal by far, but it's illigal to have one as a pet sooo

32 Kangaroo Kangaroo

THEY ARE WILD ANIMALS YOU can't HAVE PET KANGAROOS! Volunteer at a rescue do not have them as pets.

Can you even do that? Pretty sure it's illegal and Where the HECK would you even GET one

You can not have a kangaroo as a pet they live in certain places - PatrickStar

You can got a kangaroo they are expensive though

33 Parrots Parrots Parrots, also known as psittacines, are birds of the roughly 393 species in 92 genera that make up the order Psittaciformes, found in most tropical and subtropical regions.

They're great pets, but they cost to much! I agree completely on making this guy number 37.

They sit on your arm, so wonderful

They are very nice to have :)
Just there bite may Hurt '. '

Parrots are pretty mad but they are colourful and beautiful and they are really really really really really really cool! :-)

34 Tiger Tiger The tiger is the largest cat species, most recognisable for their pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside.

Do not have pet tigers. They are not meant to pace in a cement cage all day. It is as inhuman to have them as pets as it is to poach them. There as on 3000 left in the wild and if you want to have one as a pet, go volunteer at a rescue center.

Never have a tiger as a pet it breaks my heart and they should be 100 or off the list they are left in the wild not in a small cage in your back yard go watch BigCatRescues videos and you will change your mind about even considering the idea in the back of your head!

They are cute but violent - PatrickStar

I wish I had one but its illegal in my state :( - venomouskillingmachine

Alpacas are so cool!

37 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.

U can not have part lion even if u could it would eat u duh.

Yeah sure you do. Lions are extremely dangerous and if you look away or look away they will snap. You can't ever domesticate a lion, tiger, hyena etc. because they will can turn at any moment.

Yeah, it's sure awesome having a wild creature in your house because it's 'cool'. Dude, you might as well be poaching to keep a pet lion! - Emberflight_of_StormClan

Uh uh! *shakes head*
I do have a passion for big cats,
But that, I say, is for keeping them free,
Freedom! I know, they ARE cute!
But if you have one, they will escape
And eventually get shot by a somebody who is
Scared or even animal patrol.

38 Wolfdogs

My grandfather used to own one, He was the most amazing pet! He was extra protective and extra sweet. He was gentle around my little sister and I when we were little, I'd definitely suggest this animal as a pet!

I own a wolf dog. it is a great pet, but it tried to eat my friend!

The are very dangerous but cool and to me they are protective to their owner

39 Tarantulas Tarantulas Tarantulas comprise a group of large and often hairy arachnids belonging to the Theraphosidae family of spiders, of which approximately 900 species have been identified.

Tarantulas are the best pets to have because they are really, really awesome to have. I have a tarantula and she is great. MY Chilean Rose is very docile and she loves me a lot and never bites ever. That's why they are lovely to have. And that's that's why in my opinion they are number 1

There like really small dogs

I love spiders!

Noo dogs are first tarantulas are scary and Harry no offense

40 Alligators Alligators

Okay, there are many stereotypes, but my grandma lives by a swamp on new Orleans, and I can guarantee you, as soon as a gator aces out, the entire dam street spent come out for two hours after he's gone

Alligators are very dangerous and are wild animals, not pets. My mother rescued one as a child, but he was still wild at heart and returned there after rehabilitation. They do not make very good pets.

I agree with the person who said don't get them. They are wild and are meant to be in the wild.

I agree with the one below me Alligators are the worst pets ever
