9 GREAT PETS THAT ARE'NT CATS AND DOGS

Guinea pig

Guinea pigs were initially domesticated up to 4000 years BC in the Andean region of South America (Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, etc).

Ball Python

Ball pythons originate from Sub-Saharan Africa, where they tend to live in grassland or open forests.

Rabbit 

Rabbits are one of the most abandoned pets, as often people don't realize that they have quite a lot of needs and can live up to 12 years.

Tropical fish

Tropical fish may look low maintenance (they just swim around a tank, right?) but tend to have complex requirements and, depending on the species, can require a lot of space.

Gerbil

Gerbils are great pets, but need careful looking after to ensure they live their best happy, healthy lives.

Rat

Rats are highly intelligent, clean animals that make lovely pets. They can live over two years and are usually at their most active during the night.

Goldfish

Goldfish are great pets with a huge variety of types available including the Ranchu, bubble eye, pearl scale and comet.

Hamster

Hamsters are often considered a "starter pet," but as with all animals, they require attentive care.

Chameleon

Chameleons make fascinating pets but aren't big fans of being handled.
