Fish are cool but boring. Hamsters are cute & you can actually interact with them, but it's a lot of work to clean their cages. Fish don't require that much work (well, depending on how many you get & what kind & all that..)
i had hermit crabs for a while and hey are very social with humans, but can easily get stressed and have there claws or legs fall off from stress, they love to climb so you will need natural wood for them to climb on. Also, i have a russian tortoise and all i need to do to take care of him is simply turn his lights off a night and feed him, also clean his tank weekly both of them are good house pets, but keep track of them! i have had my hermit crab run away but i found him alive two days later, that was fun xD
A coatimundi. They have no nails and soft paws. They eat crickets, nuts, and fruit. They get sharp teeth but like any cat or dog you have to teach it not to nip at people. you can litter box train it, there super soft. And as a baby there as small as a newborn kitten and full grown there there size of a racoon. I saw one and held it for the first time ever and i fell in love. Downfall about theme is that they have to be imported from texas and they cost around 1500$ depending on where u live. google them and there pic.
Ducks! they are awsome and cheap! a huge bag of feed is only 17.00$ and that will last you a while!! I have two and i got them as babies from my friends and they can be trained lol and they are very hardy
fiddler crabs! keep them in a fish tank filled with water and sand leading up to the surface so they can breathe. Decorate with plants and wood. don't let them get out though, you'll never see them again.
Mice and rats are awesome pets, although they can be a little musky (less musky than ferrets, though, and people still love ferrets). They can ride on your shoulders like birds and are super soft, they come when they're called like dogs, and rats can even be litter box trained, plus, as long as you balance their diet, they can live on healthy people food. They're also VERY smart and the closest thing you can get to owning a dog or a cat without actually owning one. The down side is their short life span. They only live for about two or three years (which is perfect if you're not sure you want a long commitment like 10-15 years for a dog or a cat), but then again, no beloved pet ever lives long enough.
Well I adore hamsters they are usually easy to handle but if you have a interest in small rodents don't get them PETCO there are un-vaccinated and can have a diease called wet tail and are more prone to getting it go to petsmart cause if there hamsters get wettail they vaccinate them If hamsters are not your thing then maybe a leopard gecko is they are not expensive themselves but there supplies are.. You can research them for more info *note* they eat live crickets or mealworms so if live bugs aren't your thing then maybe a leopard gecko isn't for you
