    What the title says! For me, it is between a pair of rats or a pair of guinea pigs. Haven't decided which but I have much time to decide.

    This is in the far future, but I want a Sphynx Cat! I'm learning as much as I can about the now.

    Not for a longlonglong time, but more likely than not, another ferret.

    Won't be until Renegade is gone, though, as I promised him Ella will be the last new ferret he has to put up with. Even then, it'll likely be an older, calm ferret, cause it wouldn't be fair to make Harley live with a young energetic ferret in her old age.

    Definitely another snake. I love them!!!!! I really really want a hog island boa and heard word that I may be given one for my birthday, but I'm not positive. The breeder i really want from has a litter that should be born sometime in July.

    There are also 7 Mojave ball python babies on Craigslist right now. It's taking everything in me not to inquire about them. I only have the tank space to add one more snake right now until I eventually get a snake rack or build a bookshelf style set of display cages.

    I don't really plan on anything else...not even cats anymore. If one of the cockatiels were to pass possibly I would replace with another so they weren't alone...hopefully not for years though. All the rest of my birds should live another 20+ years so I think it will be a long time before I have any more. No other critters interest me enough to care for them.

    Horses and sheep when I have property. Maybe chickens. Dogs are really 'it' though.

    Possibly a rabbit, if it's while I'm at home. If its when I'm in my own place, it will be a cat.

    Nothing. Maybe a cat if I ever have cat friendly dogs but otherwise we'll stick to dogs.

    Well we got Cinnamon and Blueberry so Cupcake the rat wouldn't be alone. But Cupcake and Cinnamon have become a couple and Blueberry ends up on the top cage levels alone. I was thinking of getting one more suprise rat for Emmy to round out the group. Cool that you can add rats and everybody gets along so good.

    Gerbils!! I can't wait until I get gerbils again.


    I'll have more hermit crabs before that, but the next new thing will be gerbils.

    Sometime within this year I will be getting a parrot and a very large fish tank. More specifically a Galah (Rose Breasted Cockatoo), and a 300 gallon aquarium in which I hope to house 2 silver arowanas, 6 oscars, 1 clown knife fish, 1 stingray (of some sort), and maybe one other monster fish and an assortment of aggressive smaller fish.

    PLEASE take pics! I LOVE Arowanas. Unfortunately, we are away from my aquarium for 3-4 weeks at a time and feeding is a problem.

    I am reduced to a tank of Clown Loaches.

    Ooops! I wasn't thinking of aquatics. *face palm* I'm actually getting adf (African dwarf frogs) on Monday from a friend who can no longer care for them, and am probably going to get more fish soon, once I get rid of whatever my tank has come down with. (ich?)

    Speaking of window shopping... I pretty much browse hog island boa photos/breeders just about every day if that gives you an indication of how badly I want one.

    **Warning! snake pics below so scroll fast if you don't like snakes**

    Look at this cute little baby hog
    [​IMG]

    And an adult... They are smaller boas.... Usually get around 5-6 feet though females can tend to end up larger than males. Really big hogs are usually mixed with redtail or another boa.

    Nothing here, Courtney is not cat or small animal safe, so that kinda rules out everything non dog. When we eventually move and have some acreage I'd like to get a horse or two though, and maybe some sheep :)

    No more pets. Everything non dog from this point out needs to work for a living - ie chickens, ducks, etc.

    I sure will. Hopefully you're still apart of this forum in a decade and half when I get my Arapaimas Gigas, Mekong Giant Catfish, and assortment of Red Tailed Catfish, Peacock Bass, Pacus, and other Amazon River based fish. I can't wait.

    I love fish. I'm a huge freshwater fan. Monster fish are my heart.

    ...they need a sub forum for this. Lol.
