Iguana named Monty (Short for Montezuma), about 6 yr old and 4 1/2 feet long (would be longer but came to us w/broken tail), got as a rescue. A friend had bought him from a pet store and raised him, kept him in an aquarium; as he got bigger the family got more scared to handle him so he basically sat, confined. My hubby jumped at the chance to have one again (this is the fourth he's ever cared for - all rescues, won't buy from pet stores). He got Monty used to being handled (leather gloves and all, at first). He had two broken front toes, too (Monty, that is, not hubby), that we splinted every day, just to stabilize them until they healed.
Tortoises, Boris and Natasha, Russian Horsfieldis. About 5 yr old, she has grown to three times his size (he still tries to mate w/her - makes little rubber-ducky squeaky noises when he's being amorous).
Crows, Mitch and Mel - rescues too. They have malformed legs from a calcium deficiency (waxes and wanes with the crows, from year to year) - can't stand on their legs, so really can't be in the wild. Of course, hubby hoped they would heal, didn't realize this was a permanent condition when he rescued them, after seeing them out of the nest and "helpless." (we know now they were out of the nest for a reason - nature to take it's course and all . . .) They enjoy talking with each other and eating the cat food he lovingly provides twice a day!
Two lop-eared rabbits (Ashley and Fuzzy).
. . . as well as our five cats . . .
My friend, a kindergarten teacher, likes to keep rats (did you know there are several exotic species of rats too?? Dumbos [bigger ears than the others], etc) in the classroom. Says they're smarter than hamsters and guinea pigs, most don't bite and allow kindergarten-type handling.
