Top 10 Non-Traditional Pets

Skunk:Skunks as pets are very playful and require a lot of stimulation. If left alone for too long, they can get into things sort of like a human toddler. 

Sugar Gliders:The sugar glider tops our list as one of the best exotic pets to own. Sugar gliders are “flying” marsupials about the size of gerbils. 

 Llama:The South American cousin to the camel, llamas are one of the few animals that people can safely hug. 

Leopard Geckos:Their name derives from the species’ leopard-like spots. However, unlike the big cats, leopard geckos are friendly and pleasant with humans!

Hedgehog:Hedgehogs are super pets for introverts. The non-social bundles of fur have a simple diet and require an enclosure similar to a guinea pig’s pen. 

Ferret:Ferret’s popularity is on the rise in the United States. More and more families are welcoming the furry little creatures into their homes.

Fennec Fox:Big ears are typically seen as less than attractive, but on Fennec foxes, they’re up there on the cuteness chart with Baby Yoda — excuse us, Grogu. 

Emperor Scorpion: They can be housed in a 10 gallon glass aquarium tank, and would need 3-6 inches of bedding such as peat, soil, or vermiculite to allow for burrowing.

Chinchillas:Originally from the Chilean highlands, chinchillas are incredibly soft rodents, and increasingly, people people view them as some of the best exotic pets to own.

Capybara:Capybaras are the kindest animals of which you’ve ever heard. The highly social and oversized rodents regularly top friendliest animal lists.
