Default Exotic Pets?

Anyone here into exotic animals as well? I've always been into so called "different" things. I like to have things that most don't find desired or reasonable for some reason. So I had a pet alligator delivered to me over night (actually it's a dwarf caiman, and only cost me 300 bucks). It's more of a hobby than a pet but its a lot of fun. He or she has grown to about 2 foot long now and is putting on some mass. Should top out at around 4-5 foot.

I'm sure my wife would draw the line here. Hope you keep any other pets you have safe!

I used to raise snakes, boa constrictors and ball pythons primarily. Caimans were a bridge to far for me. Exotic pets are certainly cheaper than exotic cars. Careful with that caiman, had a buddy get 20+ stitches from his.

My wife has 2 pets that are kind of exotic. They are F2 Savannahs......so thier grandparent was an African Serval. I describe them as dogs with large cat bodies. They play fetch and like being by you, but they can jump over 7' in the air and have claws that could gut you in your sleep......which I am fairly sure they will do one of these days.
Here is one.....Lambo......yes, like what we have here. She said if she could get her, she'll name her Lambo to reminder her that I get a lambo too.......

How about a blue and gold macaw named Sibal? I helped hatch her back in June of 1991. The pic is from yesterday.

My wife is too. These have a different texture of fur and don't shed much. We've had people over to our house that are horribly allergic, without issues. We do keep our house very clean, but not ridiculously so. If you are interested, look into it some more. Might not be as big an issue as you think.

Some hard core owners feed them an all raw diet, chicken, beef, etc, but then they have to give them vitamin supplements and what not. Since we have a young family and frankly do not have the time to do that, we get a very high end canned food recommended for them, the stuff looks better than some things I eat out of cans. They also have dry food out for whenever they want.
It's funny, the younger one is really skinny, but is hungry all the time. She'll wander the house meowing really loud until someone feeds her, outside the normal 2 feedings per day she gets even though she has access to dry food, she wants another can.

I'm not a cat guy, and I think they are pretty cool.

We have rats outdoors which is pretty common in Hawaii and we use Terminix rat control, but we have found that our neighbors cat does even a better job. I can only imagine your Savanahs would make short work of the problem, lol.
