What's a weird pet you or someone else has had? Why did you/they have it?

I mean technically it wasn't a pet but we had a "pet" Possum in my garage as a child and it's name was Socksies and she had a baby. We kept her for awhile, fed her apples, etc but we had to eventually get rid of her so he called up a place that looks after wild animals and makes sure they are ok to be released. They took both the baby and the mum and that was the end of it :)

  • I lived in an apartment, and I had a tiny shed on my back porch. There was a large gap under the door of the shed. So Maxine decided to live in there for the winter.

    Skunks are nocturnal, so Maxine would come up to my sliding glass door at night and look at me. How could I not give her an ice cream sandwich?

    Every night when my wife and I were watching TV, Maxine would come and look into the window for uncle Chet. Fuck! There goes another one of my ice cream sandwiches. I had to start buying extra ones. When I ran out of ice cream, Maxine was OK with peanut butter sandwiches. Skunks are really nice and cute, but just don't get on their bad side.

  • I had an opposum I raised from a baby. He was pretty cool.

    I also have had a lot of arthropods as ‘pets.’ Pillbugs and millipedes mostly, and they are pretty fascinating.

    Lastly, I raised some black widow spiders not long ago. They are cool but are surprisingly very tempermental and short lived.

  • In my city they used to sell baby turtles everywhere.
    In every shopping plaza they had a turtle stand. I bought a turtle, I had her for maybe 8 months until she started biting people. My mother took her to a nice lake where there is rumor of her having many babies there. Now the turtle stands are illegal here.
