    Fantasy Animal Poll

    Ok, Idk if this has been done before, but...

    If you were to own one animal never normally kept in captivity, money and space being no object, what would it be? Why?


    I'd have an ocelot, tapir, or sloth. Idk which! I pretty much love Central America and all it's jungle life.

    Re: Fantasy Animal Poll

    Well, this is an old thread but here goes anyways:

    My fantasy pet...

    Dragon





    Of course, there might some... complications in keeping a dragon...



    No ifs ands or buts.

    But for a REAL animal that has been proven to exist...

    Sand Cat



    Or

    Fruit bat



    Oooooor

    Hyena



    But, those jaws are pretty nasty so hows a bout a close relative, the Aardwolf



    Oooorrrrrrr

    Red Panda



    Actually, I'll take 'em all *hugs and snuggles*

    Re: Fantasy Animal Poll

    Old thread or not, a dragon would be great! It would make our neighbours think twice about being stupid late @ night & could make my employer rethink some of its practices.

    Don't know about a sloth tho, long nails and awful personal hygiene. How about a freshwater otter?

    Lawl. I can only wish. I suppose I could get a Komodo Dragon instead...

    I've heard of people keeping an otter for a pet... and I inhabit a board where one of the members has a pet anteater ^^

    Re: Fantasy Animal Poll

    Well, if some people have capybaras as pets why not an anteater? How does he/she feed it? I suppose you could rent it out to people who have ant infestations ...

    A phoenix would be an interesting pet too. Or a griffon.

    Re: Fantasy Animal Poll

    I'm not entirely sure. I'll go search the threads and see if she wrote anything on her anteater.

    I'd pay for it! I've been fighting for months!

    Can you imagine how many generations the phoenix would be passed down?!
    I, too, would like a griffon
    Some of the animals I have in my books would also be pretty cool.... despite the fact most of them are pretty aggressive.

    EDIT: Okay, so she has a link to an Anteater FAQ

    and her Flickr account which has a lot of anteater pictures.

    Her Blog all about living with anteaters.

    Aaaaaand Youtube with videos of the anteater.

    How about a flying horse or a hippogriff from Hagrid of Harry Potter fame? I'd really like something that would get react to stupid/mean people.

    for anyone who wants check out some "exotics" which actually exist & are for sale try kensexotics.com. Not all have pix, but the ones that do make me wonder about what you do with them once you have them?

    Would be an excellent way of getting rid of door-to-door salesmen, just have your liger stand next to you when you open the door ......

    Dude -- I would TOTALLY love to have a red panda as a pet. Or a red fox.

    Definitely a unicorn. That would make the 10 y.o. in me very happy

    I'd take a snow leopard, too

    Re: Fantasy Animal Poll

    Fruit bats are a fave, but having worked with them, the idea of FB guano, in quantity, in my home, is not a fun idea.

    A Hoffman's sloth may be in my not too distant future.

    My fantasy animal, 'fantasy' since there is little chance I will ever lay my hands on one unless I move to Australia, is a wombat.

    Re: Fantasy Animal Poll

    I would have to say:

    Loggerhead Sea Turtle, or Green Turtle (or any sea turtle for that matter)
    Marine Iguana
    Galapagos Tortoise
    Komodo Dragon
    Male Ribbon Tailed Astrapia
    Greater Bird of Paradise
    Superb Lyrebird
    Kakapo
    Whale Shark
    Giraffe
    White Rhino
    Dodo Bird

    Just what I could get off the top of my head, I'm sure I could think of more given enough time

    I'd say an orphan Eastern Canadian wolf pup. Since it's an orphan, there will be no heartbroken mothers or fathers, and since it's a pup it will be easier to bond with and train. I'm only not too sure about caring for it...

    The animal I dreamed of having from the time I was a kid is a peregrine falcon. By good fortune I got a beautiful female peregrine last year. There is an incredible feeling I having the fastest animal in the world!!!
