I have a Teddy Bear Hamster named Teddy. I love him so much he will not let anyone else hold him unless i put him in another persons hand. When i first bought him a ball to roam around the house alone he went crazy and stayed active for at least 3 hours.

I have a redtail catfish in a tank with a snakehead. They are both pretty good predators. I started out with about 25 south american cichlids (oscars, dempseys, convicts, arrowana) of varied species in a 120 gallon tank fish tank along with the redtail and snakehead. Now there is two! May the best man win! They have co-habitated for some time now and appear to be great tankmates.

Mini lops are the most adorable bunnies out there. Besides their cuteness, they are wonderful pets and they are very snuggly. I have two and they are brother and sister, and they are my "snugglebunnies".

I owned one of these for several months and was my pride and joy. A very beautiful fish and wonderful to watch/interact with. I had lots of rockwork for him to hide amongst and he loved every part of it. I had to trade him in unfortunately because he tried to eat my powder blue tang. As soon as the grouper was out of the tank in a quarantine tank (to allow the tang to become acclimated), all of my other fish that had been hiding all the time came out. I put two and two together, and unfortunately the answer meant trading him in to my local fish store for in store credit. Probably one of the best fish I have owned, I just wish I had planned better as far as compatability.

I got to know (more-or-less) a Scarlet Macaw in the 1980s when I was staying in a hotel in the Yucatan. The building was in the depths of the forest, and had windows without glass and a ground floor that opened on all sides to the jungle. The bird, I imagine, was quite old. It had no cage, just wandered around the ground floor of the hotel. I never saw it leave the building. It yammered to itself incessantly, and had a broken wing which it dragged along the floor. Seemingly a very unhappy bird. It definitely did not like to be bothered; if you got in its way it would yowl at you. I always felt sorry for it. It think its life was going badly. I stayed at the hotel for a month, working on a screenplay, and saw a small army of tourists come and go. Everyone was introduced to the bird, and most ended up being quite wary of it. Sometimes, during dinner in the dining room, it would just stand at the far side of the room and watch the guests eat.

I have a male Mini Lop and loves to play around. I named him Leo. His colours are a thick tan strip from his nose to his back and the rest of him including his tale is a blueish grey. If anyone is going to get a rabbit soon, I garuntee a Mini Lop is the right rabbit!!

My parakeets are the only thing that keeps me alive, i honestly dont know what i would do without them. I got one and i didnt think that i would really like it, and if i didnt then my sister was going to keep it with her parakeets. but after about the first week of training and just giving it all of the love that i had to give then i finally decided that i would get more, well i have only been caring for them for about 3 months and over that little bit of time i already have 4 and i am going to get another one shortly! But anyone who feels that they need someone or something to love and for it to love you back i would highly recommend a parakeet or two!!! They are great.

I also have a pet raccoon now. He is 14 months old.
Yes he is much more than i ever imagined!! Not necessarily "tearing" things up, yeah he could i guess, but he just likes to make a total mess of everything, i dont care what it is, he can make a mess of it!
alot of people get them and at about 5 months decide to get rid of them b/c of their coonie behavior.. either dumping them off in the wild, or hurting them!
I made a committment to my coonie and to myself no matter what happened i would always keep him and be good to him.
He is only playing and if anyone has ever seen a wild coon fight, they would know the difference!! A friend says I have the meanest coonie ever!!! He doesnt have a mean bone in his body!!!
Just because he darts off the bed and chases me around the table then jumps as high as he can to bite whatever he can bite..LOL
i just have to tell myself, hes only playing..
GRIN AND BEAR IT!!
