My sister's just got a pair of Giant African Land Snails. She was trying to think of names for them, so I suggested Garlic and Butter. She decided that Penny and Farthing were better (one's a lot bigger than the other).
I had a goldfish once.
We have a Border Collie(Not very exotic, I know). Post pics Y/N?

It was a pretty interesting pet when awake, but then it somehow got out and we found it outside with a big crack in its shell (We suspect the dog got hold of it) and it died a week later. Snails and other mollusks (Annelids such as worms and leeches count as well) possess characteristics of both sexes, so prepare for plenty of eggs. Very easy to keep. :smile:

Now we have giant African snails eating the paint off of everyone's houses. [editline]13th March 2012[/editline] And the snakes that eat our alligators, because ONCE AGAIN some idiot had the idea of releasing the damn thing. [editline]13th March 2012[/editline] And we have a whole menagerie of plants that breed like wildfire and everyone just-so-happens to be allergic to. [editline]13th March 2012[/editline] You have no idea what can happen when you mix exotic animals, a temperate climate, and a truckload of idiots together. God.
Since rocks were discussed in the OP, here's Brock, he's pretty layered, and very tough, as he is a NM sedimentary after all. [IMG]http://i1203.photobucket.com/albums/bb397/kart22racer/IMG_08391.jpg[/IMG]
Just look at that form

Anyway I think it's too cold for them here if she did release them.
[img]http://i.imgur.com/GoINk.jpg[/img] Here's a picture of just the sundew, if any of you are interested.
I love Sundews, they're so cool looking.
I would LOVE a carnivorous plant. Our house usually gets infested with flies over the summer (poor habits of the house and some kind of fruit tree in the backyard) and I would just love watching all of them getting eaten. Silly question time, though. How do you feed them? Which one is the cheapest/easiest to take care of?
[QUOTE=DOG X9282;35134675][img]http://i.imgur.com/GoINk.jpg[/img] Here's a picture of just the sundew, if any of you are interested.[/QUOTE] Doesn't it catch flies by wrapping them in their tentacle arms?
They catch their prey via the sticky beads on their leaves, and then they digest it. I think they wrap it in their leaves, not sure. I'd like a sundew, but I don't get many wild insects in my house and I can't actually find one at nearby garden centres. I tried keeping a venus flytrap but I was young and foolish- touching the sensitive bristles in their 'mouths' causes them to shut, and it can kill the plant eventually if it doesn't get food to make up for the energy expended.

I've found that venus fly traps are pretty easy to come by and survive well on a south facing windowcill [in the UK] sitting in rain water.
Awww, poor bug. Maybe I should reconsider getting a carnivorous plant. [editline]14th March 2012[/editline] Like, I hate flies, but I think I'd probably start crying if it caught and digested a bee. I love bees.
I had a bee on my windowcill the other morning, it didn't seem too interested in the plants, like flies are.
I saw an ad on Craigslist for a pygmy goat for $20 [I]and I can't have it.[/I] I'm so sad. They're so cute. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3CWpT010Pc[/media]
Oh, that reminds me, we got a pygmy goat! The noises it makes are really quite funny. [editline]14th March 2012[/editline] Wait, no, it's not a pygmy; it's just a baby. Ho-hum.
My family is considering of raising goats after we get a new house. Goats are cool.
Loud as hell though
Need some ideas for my hedgehog. With the winter in Kansas, temps can go down below 0. During winter I had one of those ferret igloos with a thin blanket over it. It kept the hedgehog warm enough to survive. Now, with the summer coming up, temps will be at a constant 80-100. I will be removing the blanket but that won't stop it from getting to hot. Any of you guys have an idea on how I can keep the hedgey at a simple 70F? I have a air conditioner in my room if that's any help.
So I searched some places where I can buy a lizard in my area first reasult that popped up was some add for a food place, where they server lizards :ohdear:
