2 rats and 1 tree frog. We had mudskippers some time ago. They were so odd!

if by 'pet' you mean 'creepy guy in the basement' and by 'own' you mean 'he moved in one day', then yes, I'd say my Uncle Chester counts as a strange pet.

I was just reading today on the clawed frog group I belong to, that some frogs do take a year to morph from tadpole to frog! I think they were talking about a bullfrog, but I imagine others are like that too.

My chinchilla and all but one of the ones my roommate had were very friendly. when you let them out they'd hop around the room for a while do some air flips then when they got tired they'd cuddle up on your shoulder or in your lap

My son and I had 2 real colorful fish (mine was named Bono and a very pretty familiar Blue Crack blue color). they were those Japanese fighting fish...when we'd put their bowls facing one another they'd both get all agitated and puffed up. It was almost evil.

Now I have a Jack Russell Terrier who isn't so much strange, but she is spoiled ROTTEN with some real idiosyncracies about her!

I own a free-roaming house lizard.

i didn't purchase him. he sort of came along with the flat when we bought it. back then, he was just a teeny-tiny baby lizard. nowadays, he's a morbidly obese adult lizard (this fact may well serve as an indication to the frequency and quality of my housekeeping efforts ).

my relationship with him has evolved from one of absolute abhorrence to that of reluctant tolerance. see, at first, i wanted to destroy him (and his creepy webbed extremities); my husband, however, wouldn't allow me to act on that impulse. as per my husband's ban, i was forced to accept his presence (in that way, i perceived the situation like an unwelcome in-law staying in my home). still, for kicks, i sometimes pull out the vacuum cleaner, dust it off and suction all around his hide-out. i rather enjoy seeing him scurry at the speed of sound for his life. don't feel bad for him or anything though, he gets back at me by defecating on my walls. not cool in my books

i suppose, at some point, the lizard and I will develop mutual respect. but like any relationship, that takes time and a concerted effort on both our parts; we're committed to make this work.

We used to have a Cockatoo (bird) and we recently had a Bengal cat but we had to give him away because he was too wild and he was mean to my other cats
