If You Could Have Any Animal You Wanted...

Postby caninesrock » Sat Jan 21, 2012 9:34 pm

If you could have any animal you wanted in a perfect world where there was no silly things such as endangerment or extinction of species, invasive species, or animal bans, what kind of animals would you want as a pet? You can even include prehistoric mammals and dinosaurs if you want. Remember. It's if you could have anything you wanted no matter what.

For me it would be:
1. Mexican Gray Wolves
2.Iberian Wolves
3. Red Wolves
4.Syrian Golden Jackals
5.Serenghetti Golden Jackals
6.European Golden Jackal
7.Indian Golden Jackal
8.Siamese Golden Jackals
9.Common or Plains Coyote
10. Mexican Coyote
11. Lower Rio Grande Coyote
12.Eastern Coyote
13. Mountain Coyote
14.Northeastern Coyote
15.Northern Coyote
16.Coydog
17. Czechoslovakian Wolfdog
18.Wolf-Malamute Mix
19.Lupo Italiano
20.Siberian(Common)Dholes
21. Culpeo
22.Sechuran Fox
23. Raccoon Dog
24.White-nosed Coatimundi
25. Kinkajou
26. Ferrets
27. Stoats
28. Marten
29. European Mink
30. Red Pandas
31. Fossa
32.Fisher
33. Wolverine
34. Thylacine/Tasmanian Tiger/Tasmanian Wolf
35.Sulimov Dog
36. Russian Domestic Fox

Are they freakishly tame or do they retain their normal behavior? Because if the former, I'd so have a tiger! :D If not, I'd love a cheetah. Their temperaments are supposed to be awesome. And definitely a clouded leopard!

Also some small cats like the rusty-spotted cat, which I adore, and golden cats.

I'd be interested in the quoll and that tree shrew that TG mentioned, but not as much as cats.

Hmmm, I didn't think of that. I suppose they could be "tame"(like domesticated),but still keep some of their natural behaviors. Like how cats are domestic but can still kill mice and dogs are domestic,but some breeds like huskies still howl like wolves,etc. So, you could have a domesticated tiger in the perfect world. Lol. :lol:

Becuase the European Mink is cuter-looking to me than the American mink. Dumb reason. I know.

Hmm I never looked until now. They seem pretty similar to me. I think you're more likely to find an American mink since they're the type bred in fur farms. They also come in super awesome color varieties. If I get one, I want a blue...

Well, European Mink have a slighter rounder face/head that makes them look cuter(and more otter-like) to me, where as, to me, the American Mink, look like really fat, puffy ugly ferrets that got they're faces squished in a little(I like ferrets,but ferrets that look buffed up,chubby, or like someone pushed their face in with a hammer are ugly to me. So, I think American Mink are ugly because that's what they look like to me):

I think it varies a little bit by each mink (genetics) and gender, but yeah I see what you're saying, they do have chubby-looking cheeks and a bulky look. I really like the way they look, personally. Fantastic coats, such chubby cuddly bodies...cuuute.
