A chimpanzee is neither a strange animal or suitable as a pet. As strong as seven men it is capable of inflicting serious harm, and that would be just during play. Imagine if it got angry with you. Whoever put this list together has serious irresponsibility streak.

It should be illegal to keep exotics as pets. Don't encourage idiots to obtain these animals that need to be in their natural habitat.

No, I don't think I want any of those animals as a pet, I have a dog whom I love very much.

Why in the world would anyone want a cockroach or a stick bug or an alligator for a pet. the only animal shown above (and it'd not an animal) that I'd consider as a pet is the Macaw. . I think I'll just stick with my dog. He causes me enough trouble.

Thanks but I'll stick to my cat and dog. NEVER in a lifetime would I want ANY kind of spider or snake as a pet. The hedgehogs are really cute, but I used to live in England, and would see them out in the wild. I wouldn't want to see them locked up at all.

Rob Bowman, Chimpanzees are extremely dangerous!

jcairniesorensen, Pigs are far more intelligent than people give them credit for. The pot-bellied pig I know, lived in the house (it did have a yard to wander & graze in) and was better at using a litter box than some of the cats I’ve had!

Over the years I had friends who had a pot-bellied pig, a python, a tarantula, and a hedgehog. (Guess I should add that those were 4 separate individuals!) Llamas look cute but they spit.

Hedgehogs and Guinea Pigs make great pets. Pot belly pigs also make great pets but you need the right space for them. Like a country setting. Some of the other ones I would not want. I live with a bearded dragon who is very much a part of the family.

None of these should be classified as pets and people should be discouraged from this practice. Thanks to human greed many of these wild animals are on the endangered list. Instead of buying the creature the money should go towards conserving their habitat.

I feel most of these should not be pets. Best left in their own habitat. Humans meddle far too much!

I might like to have a Llama if I owned a farm but the rest don't appeal to me at all Bonnie

Julie Allen, llamas and alpacas are kept and bred as domestic animals and can be friendly towards people.

Other than the llama which is commonly kept as a domestic animal I would not contemplate keeping any of them. They are wild animals and need their freedom and environment to be respected. I knew a farmer who had a llama as a companion for a rescue donkey, they used to follow the family around like dogs and were both very friendly. That's partly why I make an exception for llamas.

Wild animals belong in the bloody wild! 🤬

What makes humans think they have the right to have a wild animal?? Wild animals don’t want us. Would we like it if we were captured by another species?! Cats and dogs have been bred for us to have as pets. They are so plentiful and waiting for a good home. I know those who have an exotic animal, which soon is neglected because the initial thrill has ended.

Yes I did like them and no I would not like one as a pet.
