10.Kinkajou If you’re like most, you’ve never heard of this animal. Though more closely related to racoons, adult kinkajous (sometimes referred to as honeybears) look like a cross between a monkey and an (albeit tiny) bear, with dense, wooly fur.
9.Sugar gliders Unlike kinkajous, sugar gliders are highly social creatures that tend to live in colonies. As their name implies, sugar gliders can glide between trees resting upwards of 150 feet away from each other.
8.Wallaby Cousins to kangaroos, Wallabies are marsupial creatures which are best suited to owner who can provide ample space for them to jump, run and play in. Because of this, most yards aren’t suited to these animals’ needs.
7.Hedgehog Hedgehogs are kind of the rolly-pollies of the domestic animal world, as they like to curl up into tight balls at even the slightest hint of a threat.
6.Chinchilla The soft, downy fur of Chinchillas which make them the ideal coddlers has unfortunately contributed to their popularity in the fur industry since the 16th century.
5.Bush Baby Like sugar gliders, bush babies (also known as galagos) are capable of leaping up to twenty feet.
4.Spotted Genet Spotted genets may look like a cats, mixed with splashes of cheetah and bear, but they’re more genetically similar to mongooses and hyenas and have been kept as pets for a millenium and a half.
3.Fennec Fox Fennecs are the smallest foxes in the world and grow to be only four pounds. As is the case with most animals suited for purses, Fennecs are about as high-maintenance as you’d expect.
2.Mini Pig The ideal pet for Charlotte’s Web and Muppet lovers alike. Similar to children, pet pigs are known to push the limits of their owner’s patience and many have had to resort to childproof locks to stop midnight pantry raids.
1.Mini Donkey Donkeys are known people pleasers who love to cuddle and are extremely affectionate toward other animals, small children and their owners.
