Hey, what about sand cats? lol

I put down serval, mostly because that's one of the exotic cats I'm most interested in. Small, beautiful, graceful, and a good investment if you're interested in breeding. Since they are one of the more "easier" exotic cats kept in captivity, they're one of the best options for first-time exotic cat owners. They are capable of being affectionate, can be reserved, moody, hissy. They're a good cat to get experience with.

A tiger would be really neat, but not practical for me at all. I don't think I would ever think about getting one, though it's cool that some people keep them. I like the tabby tigers. They're pretty, but maybe that's just because they're so rare.

Haha I know, there are many other cats that I would have liked to include in this poll but since we are only allowed ten options I chose the animals that most people would know :)

Voted cheetah and ocelot - but my favourite cat is the jaguar. Love asian golden cats too.
My main interest is in parrots, dogs, toothed whales and snakes.
Future animals I want to have when we have land are camels, wolfdogs/wolves, coyotes or jackals, striped hyena or aardwolf. Also poultry, rabbits water buffalo and/or yak for livestock.

Ooh, I also really like the pallas cats. They're so cute! But they're so rare in captivity since I've heard their mating can be violent, and can result in death. But they look like real-life cheshire cats.

Lions are my favorite. Leopards are my second favorite but that wasn't a voting option.

The way people have been observing and studying lion social habits in the past couple of years have vastly changed.

Has anyone seen that clip of an old female with a badly healed broken jaw, and a younger female actually turned, moved and held a recently killed prey animal for her so she could eat? It's remarkable. There is no mistake of what that lioness was doing. She was holding the kill in a position so the older female could still eat.

The people observing wondered at first how that female had lived so long with such a bad injury. She'd be dead from starvation if they didn't care for her like that, her jaw was so off center and healed so poorly that she wasn't able to eat on her own.

That's really interesting, Juska. Do you have a link to the video? I'd love to see that.

You always hear about the male lions in the pride, lionesses with their cubs, but you hardly ever hear about the relationships between the lionesses, I feel, unless it's about hunting. I'd like to know more about how all the girls in a pride act around each other when not chasing prey and being moms.

I tried to find a video, but I was unsuccessful. I believe I saw it on NatGeoWild but I don't remember.

That's amazing. I once saw (on TV, years ago) a lioness who'd had her jaw kicked off by a giraffe during the hunt, and the narrator said she was doomed to starve to death.
But, you never know.

So much for "only humans have morality/empathy".
