For me its a tarantula....I know some people keep them as pets but because of my arachnophobia I don't think I could sleep well..... Nervous ROFL

I've kept injured snakes for pets, but only until they could be turned loose again. I don't care for spiders of any kind, but don't want to harm them either.

I hate seeing birds in cages. I've had a few that were given to me by people who tired of them, and I end up letting them fly around the house quite a bit. If I thought they could survive on their own if turned loose outside, I'd have done that.
We take these beautiful creatures than can fly for miles and put them in tiny cages so that we can have something pretty to look at in our homes. I think it's cruel. Can't say I'd never have one, because I have, but I'm a very liberated bird owner and I would never purchase one from a pet store or someone who raised them for money. The last one I had was a little lovebird who came to me with clipped wings. How awful is that? I equate it with someone breaking my kneecaps and sitting me in a wheelchair. My dogs are even accustomed to having birds flying through the house and even landing on them. I'd leave them loose permanently if they weren't such messy little things.

Oh I don't mind snakes so much but the ladies in the family won't hear of it.

Hmm...never really thought of it like that... It absolutely makes sense though, we've only had a few birds ourselves and we also let them fly in the house but like you say....they can be messy ROFL

Aw that's too bad.. but common I think. xD I've had a Ball Python, they can be very sweet! hehe

There is no pet I wouldn't consider keeping as long as I had the proper space and knowledge.. I've already gotten over my little fear of crickets and soon I'll have roaches (on purpose!), so if I can get used to them I think I can get used to anything lol!

Hey there, looks who's back! Glad to see you on Kylie m:D

Yes, its all to common for ladies to not like snakes.lol. I think it would be cool to have one though, never thought about getting a roach... although the big ones from australia look rather interesting :p

Thanks! Yep I'm still here, despite my lack of posting. Embarassed

Well to be honest I'm not really getting the roaches as pets, I am buying a lot to breed to feed to Saphira. But I do have to handle them and take care of them, so it kinda counts right lol.

I've always thought that was the weirdest thing... scorpions, centipedes and milipedes as pets.... Especially around here in So Cal which is a desert...you can find them anywhere! Seriously?

Lol well you know, I'd have to agree! For one they are too messy for me, but it doesn't help that the only bird I've had was not as nice as my snake! Razz

I would never consider even for a moment owning any kind of arachnid. I'm not too keen on snakes and lizards either.

LOL, something similar happened to me...only not in the shower. Nervous And the second it was squashed ten million little spiders came out from it ( I guess it was carrying an egg sack or something), so you could have imagined...I nearly jumped to the ceiling! ROFL
