I had a pet snail once.  
Was telling Ron the story earlier and seems he doesn't believe me.  Finds it incredulous that I not only had a pet snail but that it recognized my voice and responded to it.
So...anyone else had an unusual pet?

I had tadpoles. in the house, in the kitchen, ewwww now, they make me feel sick. but not for very long obviously. i can still remember watching them now, then putting them back in the garden pond.     

I also gave homes to caterpillars, until they fluttered around in the kitchen,   
often worms, in a big container with soil, all for very short periods of time of course, but i loved them all the same.

I never took to snails, just ugh. no.

Snails, spiders, crane flies, ants, you name the bug, I probabaly had one (or many) at one point. My fave unusual pet? We have a cow moose that wanders around our property every winter... she's my girl... her name is Betty. Oh and then there was the leech that I caught one time and she had babies overnight... that was an interesting morning hehe... I'd love to have a human though... I've heard that they make the best pets hehe

A butterfly.  A moth, and a pet duck that adopted us.  But not all at once.  And I didn't think they were unusual.  Not for pets that kept me.

What's with Edgar?

I had a squirrel as a kid. We found it under a tree, guess it fell from the nest. Had to set it back in the wild after it bit my Grandma's ear but it lived in the tree in our backyard so it was always around until it tried to cross the street at the wrong time...

ROTFL, I almost missed this thread!
Well, I had horned toads and garter snakes (my daughter has a garter snake now) and tadpoles that became frogs IMAGINE THAT!
and of course, dogs, cats, fish, canaries and finches and assorted other feathered friends.
And did I mention my adulthood pet, a pot bellied pig named Buttercup? She stole my bottle of Molsons and pushed my daughter off the couch all the time, slammed me in the leg every time she wanted attention. Don't ask what happened to her.
