1. Theodore Roosevelt’s Josiah
This little badger was gifted to Theodore Roosevelt during his railroad tour of the American West by a 12-year-old girl named Pearl Gorsuch. Roosevelt brought it home with him and gave it to his son, Archie. Archie was known to have said that Josiah bit people’s legs sometimes, “but never bites faces.” We guess that’s pretty good.

2. Calvin Coolidge’s pygmy hippo
The story of the arrival of Billy the pygmy hippo started when Harvey Firestone, a millionaire mogul at the helm of Firestone Tires, found a baby pygmy hippo somewhere around the plains of Liberia and decided to keep him. But Billy grew up fast and suddenly wasn’t so cute anymore. He was 600 lb, over six ft long and very expensive to feed, even for a millionaire. So Harvey presented Billy as a gift to the President who was very glad to accept it.

3. And his wife’s raccoon...
Rebecca the Raccoon was sent from Mississippi to be part of the White House Thanksgiving meal. But the Coolidge family decided to keep her as a pet instead because it was so friendly and nice. Rebecca quickly became a favorite pet of President Coolidge and First Lady, Grace Coolidge. Rebecca was always present at all White House Events.

7. And when I was a child, my parents wouldn’t let me have a dog...
Every three-year-old Cambodian boy needs to have a friend. In this photo from 2003, Oeun Sambat hugs his best friend, a four meter (13.1 ft) long female python named Chamreun or “Lucky”. Superstitious villagers believed the boy was a son of a dragon in his former life and had supernatural powers.

These two curious lion cubs, whose photo was taken on December 15, 2005, lived in the house of Tatyana Efremova, a veterinarian in Ukraine. She also possessed several other exotic animals.

9. There’s no place like home.
This photo taken in January of 2009 shows how a three-year-old llama named Socke lived in the house of her owner, Nicole Doepper in Germany. She had been living there from birth due to a leg amputation she endured after an injury caused by some other animals.

10. All pets deserve a hug.
The picture shows Wattana Thongjon and his pet crocodile, Kheng in 2002. Nobody could ever imagine how big he would become when Wattana’s father found him as a little hatchling three years prior. The crocodile ate fresh chicken and lived indoors alongside their two pet dogs.

11. Some girls really do get to have a pony!
Princess was a Shetland pony who drank beer every Sunday and loved to share mealtimes with her owners. In return, she provided therapy for Clarissa who suffered from cerebral palsy. In this photo taken in August of 2004, 10-year-old Clarissa is sharing the family dinner table with her mascot.

This photo was taken back in 2005 in Dhaka. Jatra was a pet monkey, and just like a dog, he licks his master, Sohag.

13. Must be awkward having steak for dinner with a pet like that...
This picture shows Jim Sautner and his pet named Bailey D. Buffalo back on February 11, 2004. Bailey was raised by Sutner and his wife since he was just a little calf. He liked to feel like a part of the family and enjoyed daily visits to the inside of their house.

14. As Laird Hamilton said: “We’re all equal before a wave.”
Here we see Domingo Pianezzi and his alpaca, Pisco in Lima in March, 2010. Pianezzi is a very talented surf coach and Pisco was a great learner.

15. Who needs a horse, when you can ride on an alligator? Especially if you’re small enough...

This photo was taken at the Los Angeles Alligator Farm in the 1920s.

I just don't buy the Idea, of having a Wild Animal as a pet, not because they are dangerous, because they are meant to be in the Wild!!

You want a pet, Get a Dog, Cat, Goat....

Keeping a wild animal as a pet is just like falling in love with a random prostitute in the street

Are you sure this young boy didn't grow up to be the world famous Lalasticlala of the Nairaland fame? grin grin
