We had 2 white mice both named Stuart for a while. We had to give them up when we moved back to KS. Ave was pretty upset he loved the stuarts lol. They were fun we would put them in the dry tub and play with them.
We had hermit crabs that my sister got for my ds & dss for Christmas. They lasted about a month! They sure did require a lot more care than I would have expected. And I found them to be quite gross...they reminded me too much of spiders! My ds took them out of the cage & then forgot about them...we found one about a week later & the other one about a month later in the dogs mouth!!

OMG I HATE SPIDERS YUCK I dont even like shrimp b/c they look too much like spiders. And oh man the smell musta been bad....
i think i got you all beat so far the weirdest pet I have ever had was a Hedge Hog. I got him when I was 17yrs old and he lived for almost two years. I dont know why it died, not from old age that is for sure. I really loved that little thing, he was the coolest pet I have ever had. I would get one again in a heart beat if they werent so darn pricey! the best part about it is my male friends in high school were scared of it! HAHA the weirdest pet we have now is a hermit crab. i got it for my dd when i went to the beach for my birthday, came back with a gift for her!
I don't think I've seen a Hedge Hog since I left Massachusetts. They had them in the pet stores all over there. Cute little things, but definitely very prickly. You wouldn't want someone to drop one in your lap! LOL.

Well, since I'm the mother of a boy we've had some unusual ones. No hedgehogs or piggies tho .... lol. Lizards, hermit crabs, baby slider turtles fished out of the ditch, grass snakes, garter snakes ( god they are mean, too - they'll bite you in a heartbeat !! ). My faves are the two squirrels, my cats bring me a baby every few years. I'm about to release a flying squirrel this weekend, his name is Houdini because as a baby he'd get out of his cage over and over again. Drove the cats wild. His nickname is Scooby Snack. I also had a gray squirrel named Link - and I'll tell you, he loved me like his own mama. He would lie on my shoulder and I would scratch his back and he would just squeak and squawk - but never bit me. I taught him how to play, I would grab him with my hand and wrestle him - flip him etc. - and he would jump right back for more. Squirrels are misunderstood - they are loyal and quite affectionate. I sure do miss that little bugger !!
Hermit crabs, we had one that lived for quite a few years! Had a 10 gallon fish tank with beach sand and a branch for him to climb on, he ate corn meal and dried fruit. Actually we had a couple of them, they were cool. I would never have a spider but if Alexander ever wants a hermit crab I wouldn't have a problem with that.
Yes, quail! He keeps trying to give me some! I said no thank you! His wife told him that if he breeds anymore he's going to be living outside with the quail! LOL! Alexander loves to look at them when we go over to their house. He wanted them to eat the ticks now he has too many.
We have hermit crabs right now. 5 of them. I used to have Rats, and they are very trainable and fun! We used to have a pet turkey when I was young, and guinea pigs....We live next door to my parents and they have Llamas and Alpacas(15 I think) and angora bunnies. The kids like to go over a lot and see them.
