Mini Pig

Mini Pig

Mini pigs are pigs that have been selectively downsized over many generations in order to produce a pig that stays small, and can therefore make a great indoor pet. A mini pig will generally grow 12-16 inches and will reach 25-65 pounds; similar to a smaller dog. Mini pigs need a lot of attention; they do best with a companion pig to keep them company. They work well for people with allergies because they have coarse hair, called bristles, rather than fur. Like their larger counterparts, mini pigs enjoy a roll in the mud outdoors every so often.

Hedgehog

If the animal is feeling anti-social, he will roll into a ball, stick out his spines and make a clicking noise with his tongue; they are like cute spike-balls with an attitude.

The Genet has a rather large head, rounded ears, and brown eyes. Spotted Genets are very similar to cats, they are somewhat skittish, eat the same food, are strong hunters, and are about the same size and shape, although if you ever get the choice between a cat and a Genet, pick the Genet, they are way cooler.

Capybara

Capybara

Capybaras are the largest rodents on earth. Adult Capybaras are typical between 3 – 4 feet long and can weigh between 100 and 150 pounds. Capybaras1 heads resemble those of other rodents but are much larger. They have small ears and legs relative to their bodies. Capybaras are well-suited for living in and near the water. Their webbed feet make them excellent swimmers, helping to propel them through the water quickly. Capybaras also have the ability to hide under water for extended periods of time by holding their noses just above the surface.

Serval

Serval

A Serval, or Felis Serval, is a member of the feline family. They are native to Africa, where they thrive in a variety of habitats including savannas, bush, thickets and moors near rivers and streams. Servals are nocturnal, which is something to take into consideration. Servals are basically giant house cats with lots of instinct. These cats are usually pretty playful, but have a ton of energy and sometimes some of that primal instinct comes out, so you have to be careful. Generally they make great pets as long as you have a decent sized home.

Wallaroo

The Wallaroo is a macroscopic that is part of the kangaroo family. These sturdy marsupials generally are reddish-gray, tan, black or deep gray in coloration. Three distinct species of Wallaroos exist, which are the common Wallaroo, the antilopine wallaroo, and the black Wallaroo. Common Wallaroos grow to over 5 feet tall and weigh around 120 pounds. Common Wallaroos eat herbivorous diets that consist mostly of soft-textured grasses. These grazing animals can survive for several months at a time without drinking H20.

Chimpanzee

Chimpanzee

Adult chimps range in height from 4 to 5.5 feet and weigh between 70 and 180 pounds. They have short bodies and long arms — even longer than their legs. In addition to opposable thumbs, they have opposable big toes, allowing them to grasp things with both their hands and feet. Chimps usually walk on all fours but are able to stand and walk upright. They are also adept at climbing trees, easily traveling through the forests by swinging from branch to branch. They also typically sleep in trees. These primates are among the few animals who are able to use tools.
