Geese: They are so unbelievably loud and obnoxious... nope, never

Primates: I worked for a veterinarian years ago that would see any animal, except primates... I guess that kind of stuck with me. The risk of transmittable disease combined with the tendency of different species (in varying degrees) towards aggression is not a combination I'm comfortable with. Also, as mentioned earlier, there is something about seeing a living thing with a such a high degree of intelligence stuck in a cage that is really unnerving. I would hate to be responsible for keeping one happy and fulfilled.

Parrots: They are beautiful, intelligent creatures, and I can see the appeal to some, but they are just not for me. Too loud, messy, and moody. My dad had senegal when I was a kid, and that's enough of parrots for me. Side note: The one super cool thing I remember about this bird... My mom was a TERRIBLE cook, and the parrot developed this habit of mimicking the smoke detector alarm (at the top of her lungs) every time she heard my mom in the kitchen moving around pots and pans... lol, my mom hated that bird.

I used to be pretty anti small dog also, but I ended up taking care of a pair of aged chihuahuas for a few months after their owner passed away. They were the most obnoxious, stuck-up little dogs when their owner was alive, but when brought into a new environment they chilled out and adapted to the new surroundings faster than I would have believed. They were actually wonderful little dogs, you just had to get to know them, and make sure they knew they were safe. They taught me a lot about jumping to conclusions out of hand. I still wouldn't seek out a small dog, but I wouldn't say no to one in need either.

Parrots don't seem to be very popular, and they're my favorite animal together with domestic dogs. :p (No, I have no idea why. It's a curse, I think. I probably did something bad in my previous life, so my punishment is to spend my life with parrots.)

I don't know any animal I really don't want, except probably monkeys and apes. Too humanlike, it's a bit... unsettling. They just don't appeal to me.
Ferrets and their relatives, mustelids, but I dunno, maybe I'll like them one day. And wolverines are cool of course.

I like most things, except also spiders and their relatives.
My main interest is in parrots, dogs, toothed whales and snakes.
Future animals I want to acquire when we have land are camels, alpacas, wolves, coyotes or jackals, bobcat/lynx, striped hyena or aardwolf.

I could never own a small dog or any animal that is dumb. those get on my nerves soo much, aka any animal that cannot care for itself in the wild.
I also don't want an alpaca, camel, rodents of all kinds.

- Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches because Ewwwww!
-Spiders/Tarantulas cause they're creepy looking

-Parrots because they're super messy and noisy and they bite alot
-Emus and Ostriches cause they are creepy looking

-Fish cause they're boring

-Tortoises and Turtles cause they're boring
-Any snake larger than a ball python because I'm afraid of large snakes. I blame that horror movie "Anaconda" that I saw when I was a kid even though I know that movie was exaggerated. I also don't want any venomous snakes.


-Any Primate except for lemurs and Bushbaby because most other primates look too "human-like" and its creepy and unnerving. :/
-Big cats because I don't think I could handle them
-Any large exotic mammal like a camel, elephant, rhino, hippo, buffalo, etc. because they are alot of work, require a ton of space, and I'm not interested in any of those species enough to be willing to put in the time and effort for them.
-Pigs cause they can be messy and smelly and eat alot

I also second big cats. I'm not interested in exotic felines, and wouldn't be able to care for them.
5 Dogs, 2 cats, 1 leopard gecko, 1 guinea pig, 1 axolotl, and a coatimundi currently in my family. :)

Exotic "wishlist": red fox, mink, bat eared fox, jerboa, lemur (brown or white ruffed), egyptian fruit bat.

There are lots of species I'd love to have but would have to turn down if offered them right now because I don't have the means to care for them. There are species I have no interest in owning but know other people who are so i could sell tot hem or swap for an animal i'd prefer, and there are animals that i don't want, that are hard to sell or even give away but if i had the financial resources these are what i'd provide a home for knowing they probably have no other option.

Just thought of more. Though I might not turn one down if offered for free, I 'm surprisingly not interested in bat-eared foxes nor fennec foxes. The large ears just aren't very appealing to me. I would probably never actually purchase either of those species of fox.

They're a little bit cute, but they kind of remind me of Chihuahua's with their large ears and I'm not too fond of that breed.
