Any animal. Forget for a moment sharp claws, the poop factor, and all the other reasons for not having a wild animal as a pet...

What wild animal would make the best pet?

I like penguins a lot but having my own monkey would be kinda cool. And I saw a picture of an echidna the other day on Yahoo news. I'd never heard of the things before but the little bugger was so darn cute.

Kids. I've got two of 'em. Can't beat 'em. Just make sure they get all their shots.

Yep, nice photo. Wombats and Koalas are also large cute and cuddly, but wombats dig like crazy. If trying to smuggle them out of australia, they scratch, so don't put them down you pants.

Ummm. To be honest, there really wasn't much risk of that, even before your warning. Probably true for most of us. I think. Though you never know...

"Are you smuggling a wombat out of Australia, or are you just happy to see me?"

The mind boggles...

sugar gliders are pretty cool...

don't know if a tarsier would be cool, but i love the idea of teaching one to type

a couple of pint-sized blue penguins would have to be on the list

hanging out with dolphins is definitely on my list
