New Pet...?

I would like to get another pet to add to my little family. I already have a bearded dragon, a red eared slider, two rats, and a leopard gecko. Please, don't suggest another dog! Lol.

I'm looking for something interactive.
I was thinking about a leatherback bearded dragon, or a kinkajou. Well, the kinkajou is out, unless I can find one much cheaper than the average price.
I don't want anything like a hamster or a guinea pig. I would like something somewhat....unique, possibly.
Any suggestions?

A raven, smart and loyal if you get them as a fledgling.

That's awesome! I really like your set-up.
I just have my little guy in a 55 gallon. But it works great for him.

I just saw some PBS/Nova episode on bird brains and this guy had this pet Raven and he was absolutely awesome. I'm sure they can be a lot of work though, they are very dependent on you in the early stages, but I hear they love dogs for some reason.

Fascinating. Yes, if they are intelligent, I'm sure they'd be mischievous. Lol

I used to have 2 bearded dragons, 6 geckos, numerous dwarf hamsters, 2 rabbits, a guinea pig and a chameleon.

The bearded dragons were the coolest. I keep trying to convince my mom to get more since I can't having anything like that in my house but she got another chameleon last year so she's content with him.

Mine is only 100 but not filled all the way. I have this box built around it with a pond liner in case it leaks. I flooded my neighbors 6 times, a little paranoid at this point.

55 is more than enough. I had 40 before this and would've went on with it but when it leaked i decided to get the rubbermaid stock tank.
