Top Ten Unique Animals to Have As a Pet

The Top Ten

1 Monkey Monkey Monkeys are haplorhine primates, a paraphyletic group generally possessing tails and consisting of approximately 260 known living species.

If you're reading this, please don't get any exotic animals as pets. Not only is it a threat to humans (they may escape), but it is also harmful to the animals. They deserve to be in the GREAT OUTDOORS, not cramped up in your house.

I'd want a monkey but could be very dangerous (for them, other animals, and humans) it isn't fair for wild animals to be stuck inside a small house - FavoriteFightingFrenchman

This is a big risk the moght kill u!

2 Snake Snake Snakes are elongated, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes that can be distinguished from legless lizards by their lack of eyelids and external ears. About 600 species are venomous, some of which can be fatal to humans if no medical help is sought.

YEs snakes are my favorite type of pet after dogs but the only thing I don't like is feeding it mice

One of the most underrated and underappreciated pets out there.

Not that unique, but I am one of many who wants one. - PositronWildhawk

I wanna have one! - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX
