Growing up did you ever ask your parents for a pet that wasn't a dog or a cat? OK, maybe you asked for a fish . . .
It is hard to imagine kids begging their parents for a skunk, or a ferret and lets not even get started on birds and turtles. Chances are that if you get one of those, they could very well out live you.
Even though these animals may not seem like the typical furry and fluffy pets we are use to they clearly bring their owners joy and companionship and really, isn't that what having a pet is all about?
Unless you have a skunk like the family in this video, there is no joy in that stench.
What strange pet would you want?
