Rabbits are not "great for children". Children are often loud and rough with their pets. Rabbits are prey animals and this type of treatment terrifies them. In addition, too many people get their children rabbits as "starter pets" assuming their child will take care of it not realizing that rabbits live between 8-12 years. This means that the parent will be taking care of the rabbit when the child has gone to college. Also once the novelty wears off and the child loses interests, often the parents do not want to take on the responsibility and they either dump the rabbit on a local shelter where it will probably be euthanized or dump it at a local park or golf course where it will be the meal of a dog, cat, coyote or some other animal because domestic rabbits are not prepared to survive in the wild.

I have 3 wild raccoons that visit me every night. I give them bread and sometimes teddy grahams. My favorite is "Sweatheart". We have built a trust over several months of visits. I will place a piece of bread on my knee (while sitting) and she will reach up and take it with her paws. she then will sit next to me while I scratch her back and neck (She really enjoys this). When she is done she will go on top of my house for a rest. I know that they are wild and not pets, and I take several precautions when I have my visitations. However I would not change this for the world they are quite gentle and curious creatures.

We got "Cocoa Fluff" a number of years ago now......he has to be at least 4 years old. My son wanted a bunny for Easter SO BADLY!! I thought, "what am I getting myself into now....." Of course, who is so attached to the little guy now that my son is a teenager and has to be reminded constantly to give the poor baby food and water..........ME.........THE MOM!!! I have been through two expensive episodes with him staying at the vet and having surgery and I fuss over him like the baby of the family. His favorite treat? Bananas, like I noticed someone else wrote.......he goes crazy for them.......likes to eat them right out of the peel while you hold it for him....like a monkey! I only wish he was less nervous with people, but, when relaxed, he will lie down and watch TV with us......

I just got my little guy "Cashmere" yesterday, he is pretty funny to watch. he is really small but loves to be touched. He loves the new toys that I got him. He is already a part of the family.

I have three 3 tiger barbs and 2 Moss green barbs, I have found them to be really good with the setup ive got (3ft tank with 1x Blue acara, 1x Red forest jewel 1x Bristlenose catfish 1x Bunblebee catfish, 1x Clown loach and 1x Pictus catfish) They pay alot of "attention" to new tank mates for about half and hour then get bored of them and go back to chasing each other. The one I believe is the girl, is the biggest at about 6cm and is the ruler of the others. I have found them a great fish to watch and keep and would recommend them for most community setups (but not with neons oh no not with neons:( ).

I really love this Spotted Mandarin, I loved the way she moves, seaching food and any action every time I look at her. her looking food action is very cute. this will make me get better when I am not happy or am in a bad mood.

My wife loved her since they first meet at aquarium shop and I bought her a Mandarinfish on the same day. She very much enjoys talking to the Mandarinfish and looking at her action, very shy and very lady action.
