I'm sure it'd be hard work, but a lemur would be so fun! So would other exotic animals, but I would not own anything like a lion or bear. Yikes! A little too scary for me. I've always said I'd love to have my own little beach with dolphins I could interact with. Nothing I'd really do, but it'd be wonderful to be able to walk out your front door and play with dolphins everyday.
you have to be careful with lemurs though.
A couple friends of mine got a ring tailed lemur years ago, but i dont think thought too much into it as they bought a female lemur. Lemurs live in matriarchal societies where the female is the head of the colony. Needless to say it caused a lot of problems in the home when their lemur got older and started to act her female owner and become highly agressive if she [the owner] was on her menstrual cycle. I heard sorties about how the lemur would jump on her attacking her by pulling hair and making loud agressive noises. Shortly after they gave her [the lemur not my friend] to the primate shelter in the area where she would get proper care and be in good home.
Also @ SMichelle i cant agree more! And i'm glad you take such good care of your babies!
I knew a lot of people in high school who wanted them for the novelty of being able to carry them around in pouches during the day while they are asleep. But even so i dont think they realize just how much of a social creature Sugar Gilders are, and they tend to thrive in a small colony.
I guess , aside form the small domestic bug cats, there are a few insects i'd really like to own for pets since their pretty easy to care for. In fact i plan on getting a few mantis' for my garden when it's up and running.
