Snapzu, if you could pick any animal to be common and domesticated or available as a pet, which animal would it be?

My fiancé and I went back and forth about this for an hour or so last night and I thought it might go over well where. Interested to hear what you had to say. It doesn't need to be a REAL animal per se' but something close. Example:

Personally I would think it would be really cool if it was normal if everyone just had tiny pet elephants, maybe cat sized. Elephants are awesome creatures and very loving and totally clever. A house pet sized elephant wide spread would be really cool to me.

    Giant Honeybees! :D

    I imagine that they would be like flying cuddles of fur that act like puppies! Honeybees are really friendly and shouldn't pose any danger to the owners. The best part is that it would save them from extinction, preventing a global agricultural collapse from the lack of pollinators! :D

    Just be careful not to accidentally sting yourself! :)

    Timberwolf, as a mount to ride into battle.

    I also consider crows and bluejays as my spirit animals, because of how smart they are. I would love to have those birds at my side as well.

    OP, you need to discover the house hippo.

      Wow, that ending though! What a twist! :D

        It was on TV all the time when I was in high school.

          Hilarious, thanks for sharing!

            The younger kids obviously completely missed the message and asked their parents for a house hippo.

    I really wish domesticated monkeys were more of a thing. I know that in some places you can own a monkey, but wouldn't it be cool if everybody had a monkey? You could take your monkey to a friends house or a park to play with other monkeys. That would be cool.

      In my opinion this is the only answer to this question.

      I think one of the issues with Monkeys is that they're TOO smart! >< They'd cause a bunch of trouble! :P (secretly I would love pet monkeys in North America though!)

    An armadillo

    Why? they would make the perfect playmate for my beagle. :D Even when it doesn't want to play the dog can just roll the armadillo around.

    Dodos :) I think they'd be a blast!

    Or maybe i'm just reading too much Thursday Next

    A cheetah so I could have a running buddy!

    A giant black panther. I love cats so it is only natural to be able to have a giant one laying around the house. She would be soft and doubles as good home defense. No one wants to mess with a giant panther. Plus I've always wanted one ever since I read about Drizzt Do'urden's black panther Guenhwyvar. Not the most practical of pets I bet they eat a hell of a lot of meat in a given day.

      You can't really go wrong with the 'giant cat' answer. I'd go for a tiger myself (cop out I know) but they are just too beautiful!

      I'm sure the pink panther would be better ;)

    A Slow Loris! Because they're so cute and seem like they'd be cuddlebugs!

    • VoyagerXyX

      Nice one! Those eyes are sooooooooooooo cute!

      • SallyCamaro

        I know! Have you seen the YouTube videos of them eating white rice or bananas? I just want to snuggle them and feed them haha

          I haven't, but now I'm going to have to go look that up! :)

    Giraffes would be pretty cool. Especially if they were miniature giraffes like in this commercial.

      Beautiful, beautiful advertising. Also, that mini giraffe is cute :)

    Tossup between foxes and otters for me. Probably foxes so I wouldn't need a huge water tank!

    • captainjib

      I think that otters are just the cutest little guys! I have no idea whether they would make good pets but I've always just wanted to be bros with some otters : )

      • VoyagerXyX

        Otters are really cool. I hung out with some otters at a zoo once when I was a kid, we played hide and seek. Feels like a dream to me but my mom has the proof!

    • VoyagerXyX

      Foxes are a great answer, especially for a realistic expectation. We have cats, we have dogs, why the hell don't we have foxes!?

    In Jurassic Park, Dr. Hammond creates a tiny elephant as his first experiment. :)

    I'd want a gorilla as a pet, preferably one like Coco who knew sign language (assuming I could learn ASL at a reasonable pace). All household chores seem more fun with a pet gorilla to help you with them.

      Does he really? I don't remember that! Wow, it's been maybe a decade, decade and a half since I've seen that movie. Honestly I'm surprised I didn't rewatch before going to see Jurassic World.

      • Qukatt

        it's in the book and i don't remember if they actually mention it in the movie.
