Got a pair of these guys (actually girls):

Called degus (pronounced day-goo). Really fun to watch, very curious animals. They like to 'talk' to each other too, with soft whistling noises and stuff. Really cool. Check out this page for more info: http://www.animalnetwork.com/critters/profiles/degus/default.asp

hehe, yeah they look like someone cross-bred a rabbit with a gerbil. And they are actually more closely related to rabbits then rodents, but different enough that they may be classified in a whole new order seperate from rodents and rabbits.

Always have wanted a ferret, but can't justify the time and money right now.

hehe, my cat's usually have a bit more interest in them than my snake. I try to keep her pretty well fed, and in a cage on the other side of the room

FYI, rabbits are rodents.

They look like fun, Standard. Let us know if you end up with a litter.

Actually, rodents are classified under order rodentia, and rabbits are classified under order lagomorpha, I believe. The degus may be classified under a new order called caviomorph.

No litter's here, they are definatly both female. My brother's gerbils did just have 8 baby's, though.

Turtles would be a cool thing to have.. actually, at the pet store where I got these they have an African Mouse-eating Bullfrog. The thing is huge! I want it.

Did someone say snapping turtle?

I couldn't handle the zoo. I gave the ferret and Iguana away.

I really wanted an iquana before I got my boa, but after reading about them they seemed a bit tough to care for.

As for names... haven't thought of any yet.

You'd be amazed how much crap comes out of one of those iguanas. It was a real picky snobby pain in the butt. The ferret was cool, but I didn't have enough room for it to give it proper care unless I let it run around my place. That thing would run all over the place from the highest lamp to under the couch. ooops too big.....

Good idea Tina, but I don't think my g/f would approve. I kinda bought them for her as a valentines day present, since she wanted me to get a 'fuzzy' pet. So far I've just been calling 'em the little b@stards, since they like to chew on my fingers when I'm trying to give them treats.

Right now they're about 4 inches long, body only. They're supposed to get to about 6 inches long, plus a 6 inch tail.

We got a mean little fish, his name is Oscie. (he's an Oscar fish, nasty litttle b@st@rds!!! he almost bit my finger off once)

Most of you know about my old bunny who's now gone...

We are planning on getting a birdie that looks like this...

and at my dads house i have 3 kittys (well actually 2 since I gave one to my best friend) and a doggie =)

talk about a zoo!! I also used to live on a farm, had chickens and roosters and sheep and duck... etc =)

You want my Frank? Iguanas are cool pets. They THRIVE on neglect

Give 'em a steady supply of greens, some water, a heat rock and the occasional bath, and they'll ignore you happily for YEARS. Frank is near 10 years old. Not terribly big. Kind of like a slow-moving lettuce.
