Which Exotic Pets are Most Sought After?September 20, 2014
Exotic pets have become very popular. It’s no longer just dogs and cats pet lovers own. Here are some of the most exotic pets owned and cared for as a member of the family.
The Bengal Cat – $3K
This cat may not seem very exotic, but it’s actually an interbred cat. It’s a mix of Asian Leopard and the short haired black cat. The cat has an appearance much like a Leopard, but is the same size as a regular house cat.
Hyacinth Macaw – $11K
This very large parrot has a high price tag. It’s the largest of the parrots that can fly and has been coming closer to the endangerment status for years. The wingspan can be up to about four feet and they can get to sizes around 40 inches in length. The bird is also very strong, so a re-enforced cage is necessary.
Savannah Cat – $22K
Another mixed cat, this one is a mix of African Serval and a domestic house cat. This cat is spotted and a hard cat to create. The breeding process isn’t easy and most fail outright.
Chimpanzee – Around $60K
It may seem like a pretty cool idea to have a Chimpanzee as a pet. These very intelligent creations are much like a human in many ways. However, they are very aggressive and they are nearing endangerment. Owners have had to go to great measures to keep these animals as pets, such as removing teeth and thumbs.
White Lion Cub – $140K
This very rare lion cub can become your pet for just $140K. It will require a bit more than just a normal sized litter box, however. These lions are very rare and many are born in zoos. The chances of owning one of these guys is very slim and you still have to consider what you might do when it’s no longer a cub.
These are just a few of the very expensive pets found across the world. Not all animals are meant to be pets, however.
