When new friends go into my basement for the first time, the less tactful ones often run screaming out the door. I have what you might call a rather odd taste in domestic animals.

To assure me that I am not, in fact, a raving space loon and that it is perfectly normal to keep such creatures in the house, what are the most interesting pets you dear folks own.

My basement menagerie currently houses:

-Magnus, a full-grown ball python
-Nataku, Setsuka, and Saiki, three tarantulas
-One nameless albino frog that has not done anything remotely interesting for several weeks

The pond in the backyard houses:

-Several koi carp
-Several turtles and frogs
-One very vicious queen snake named something. I forgot which sci-fi character I named it after.


God wants you to send me some money.

John's locked in my basement since late 1996. That might scare some people at first. When they're used to him they usually pet him and grow to really like his company.

I am very unique. I have a dog, and Bingo is his name-o.

I have a dog, a cat, a goldfish and a tarantula.

We should have a contest to name geeks' frog.

I vote for Reggie. Even if it's a ladyfrog.

I have lots of pets, but nothing terribly bizarre. I guess the most unusual are my two chinchillas, Kahlua and ChiChi.

*edit* Reggie the frog does have a nice ring to it.

Mandy, thank God that you're not my sister, or I'd have to run away and live in a crappy ghetto apartment.

I hate spiders and I could never possibly live under the same roof with a tarantula. Regardless of whether it's in a locked in a cage or loose.

Flashy, as I am not entirely sure that my albino frog was ever alive, because I don't think it's moved more than about an inch since I bought it, I'm not so sure it needs a name. however, why not? I probably should think of something more flattering to call it than You Stupid Animal, Why Don't You Move.

My spiders aren't poisonous and they don't bite. They're very nice spiders. One is sitting on my shoulder right now. Say hi to the Queenzoners, whichever spider you are, I can't tell the difference. And get outta my shirt, you miserable creature.

Nobody else has reptiles? :( I feel so weird.

Pet rocks have always struck me as a bizarre choice for a pet, although I don't have one. I've just got two dogs, a slightly obese hamster, a turtle and a fish.

I can't exactly say that they are pets, but I do have rocks.

It's amazing what people will pay money for, when you could just as easily go outside, pick up a rock and 'adopt' it.
