My most strangest or weirdest pet would have to be Axle (I have others but I refuse to mention them, so Axle will do)

Axle is a 15 pound Common Snapping Turtle :)

Peaches, my chameleon. She could watch me, who was standing in front of her, and my dad, who was standing behind her, at the same time. (her eyes move independently) A weird little creature she was. But o how I loved her!

Believe it or not I had to do a internet search to figure out what you were talking about Ash I knew instantly after I saw a pic what a chameleon was...Silly me :D :D I just never knew what they were called :D

Star, she was a starling that I raised after she misterously was found in a road when there weren't even trees around her! I mean she was little didn't have any feathers when I got her. Oh I loved her, little brat would jump into my food and start eating, once she jumped into my cereal and decided she wanted a bath!:o

Mine would have to be Wyatt, my prairie dog. He is so cute and silly. I am the only one he will come to. I love that little bugger so much.

I had an opossium. The mother left it in our yard so we had to raise it. It was so sweet. It always gave us the "opossium grin" I have pictures of it i will have to look up sometime.

WOW!! My strangest pets were probably my goldfish I got when I was really young...and they only lasted a week! :D You can tell we knew nothing about fish!! Every time someone tells me they've had a goldfish for more than a year, I'm amazed! I do know someone who has a 7 or 8-year-old goldfish too!! Now that's OLD!!! :D

Acctually,

We used to have a squirlle (SP) named Robbie. We found him on our front proch, he was sooo tiny. I forget what we fed him. He used to ride on my back and sit on my shoulder and jump from me onto the couch and stuff. He got really sick though cause squirlles are diabetic and we didn't know that. We jsut needed to add gatoraid into his food and he would have been fine.

Also, we looked franticly for somewhere to take him. We found one palce but it was a 2 hour drive so we had to wait till the weekend to take him there. The person never told us what to feed him.

Probably the australian prickly stick insects. :)

Just so you know... goldfish can live into their 20s or longer. :)

It's probably not weird but when I was a kid I dug up this worm and wanted to keep it. It had a name but I can't remember. All I know is that I kept it in a bowl of dirt on my dresser for months. I think finally Dad put it back in the garden. I used to talk to it everyday. :rolleyes:

LOL! My friend and I used to catch salamanders and tried to make them a little habitat thing.

I had a mudpuppy once.
They look like this:

I had anole lizards too.

I live in the city and I have a rooster and a chicken, and used to have ducks. Most people in cities don't have those kinds of birds! So I guess that makes it strange.

Hmm... can't think of anything else at the moment.

When I was little, the cat brought in a baby chipmunk. She didn't have her eyes open and she hardly had fur. Mom fed her with an eye dropper. We ended up naming her Chesnut She was with us for about four years. She liked getting head scrtiches and liked being held. She was soooo soft! She hibernated every winter too, so for a couple months out of the year we wouldn't see her! (she had a little hamster nest thingy in her cage)

I also kept a grasshopper for a pet. Big guy too, I had him in a little cage and everything. He lived about a year or so.

I also had a chameleon! They are totally amazing to watch you can see Rex in my sig. A while ago, he turned out to be a she and she was egg bound and well, she dident pull threw, whats even worse is Peaches (Rex's chameleon buddylol) Passed away shortly after Rex , I think its cause they felt the needto be together lol. I miss them both, but one thing is for sure I will definitly have another reptile sometime in my life:)
