1. Hedgehogs

Hedgehogs are fascinating little creatures, and not just because of their prickly appearance. They have a sharp twist to them that many people find endearing – much like cats with whiskers! As long as they’re legal in your area, these spiky friends actually require very minimal specialized care: primarily food (in the wild hedgehogs eat insects) and toys for amusement or stimulation.


2. Sugar Gliders

Sugar Gliders are strange little animals that spend most of their life in the trees. They get their name from being able to glide for long distances with skin on either side, much like flying squirrels do. These fascinating creatures can be quite social and require loads of care – a small group will cost you big bucks so if your time is limited or your pocketbook isn’t deep enough it might not work out well!

3. Poison Dart Frogs

There are a number of reasons to love Poison Dart Frogs. They’re an amazing creature that is legal in most areas and among the easiest frogs to take care of, so it’s perfect for beginners too! If you do your research beforehand about their habitat needs- like temperature or humidity levels – they’ll be happy as can be with just some time and effort on behalf of the owner.

4. Ferrets

Ferrets are widely misunderstood animals. They’ve been around for a long time and have had an interesting relationship with humans, but many people don’t know much about them because they’ve become illegal in most areas of the world due to misunderstanding their needs or negative stereotypes surrounding ferret ownership such as fears that escaped pets will disrupt populations of other wild mustelids.

It’s very easy to care for your pet ferret if you happen to live somewhere where it is legal! You will need a good-sized cage (make sure when buying one online there aren’t any shipping fees) plus bedding material like untreated wood chips on top – this also doubles up as great nesting material too!

5. Fennec Fox

The Fennec Fox is a special type of fox that has gained some popularity in recent years. With their adorable wing-like ears, they seem like the perfect pet for being at home all day! But you should think twice before making any decisions because these are not your average domesticated animal and come with many risks.

They’re nocturnal prey animals which means this could lead to issues if one or more members of your household have insomnia; they’re easily spooked so be prepared for them to run when frightened (which may happen often); and as previously mentioned, their behavior isn’t similar enough from canines such as dogs even though it’s easy to mistake them just by looking at those cute little wings on top of her head.
