.......a pet, any pet, what would you have?

I have always wanted a tortoise but not one that needs to live under a lamp it's whole life
I also love the huge spiders that we have around the house but might find a pet tarantula too much to handle

I would like to have both a Green Winged Macaw, and a Blue/Gold Macaw (I very nearly capatured a feral Blue/Gold Macaw that was dinking from our garden pond about 10 years ago).

I've got enough with the ones I've got, but have always fancied keeping an iguana.

The one I've got - wouldn't be without her   , a mad, nearly 7 year old Border Collie with the best personality that (wo)man's best friend could have.

I used to always want a Mynah bird, I had aviaries for years but have now changed my views on caging birds, but like you I think they are great birds.

4 dogs plus a cat is enough at moment, cant think of anything else just more of these.

Kaz down here you can get small tortoises that just live in fish tanks with little water no lamps

Couldn't have put it better!  

I just want any animal I see!  My poor hubby lives in despair and fear everytime there are any about - and of course I torment him mercilessly!

I think dogs are my thing and there are so many breeds I'd like to own, it's untrue!  Staffordshire bull terriers remain my biggest downfall though - I have to be searched when leaving houses which have a litter of pups available!

A gibbon , or a ringtailed lemur, or a raccoon.
Preferably a gibbon.
I like gibbons.
