Worst. Idea. Ever.

I can speak from experience here. Years back, my mum took in a marmoset monkey that was looking for a new home. We had him for about six weeks.

They smell, they're noisy, they're a HELL of a lot more work than your average household pet, and they can be EXTREMELY vicious. Just ask my mum's ex, who got three nice stitches in his chin for his troubles...

Hehe, you have to laugh. Cheeky monkeys and all that. :D

I know someone who had a monkey for 12 days. On day two, they went out and left it in the living room. It trashed the place. Literally, anything that wasn't nailed to the floor was ripped up, throw from the shelves or dragged off the walls. Including the curtains.

How it lasted another 10 days before they "returned to sender", I don't know. Nuttas, they are! :eek:

I was tempted by some crocadilians a few years ago, but didn't have the space. A local exotical animal dealer had a dozen or so, but they were babies and I don't have the resources to handle them once they were adults!

I owned three Mexican Giant Toads for a few years when I was younger. They were great fun, though having live crickets escape on a regular basis was never good... Unfortunately, the male (Jeremy) died of pneumonia after a long fight with illness. The oldest female, Lola, died 6 months later of an unknown cause. It was around November 5th time, and judging by the excreted poison from her glands and the position she was sat in, she may have been frightened by fireworks, but we'll never know. The third (Rosie), who I'd bought to keep Lola company after Jeremy died, hid away for the last few weeks of her life and eventually refused to eat. She died quietly shortly after Lola.

Quite sad, really. :(

I know it's not funny, but I just can't come to terms with a Giant Toad called Jeremy. And sorry if I am being dim, but what is the connection between toads and crickets?:confused:

Admittedly, Jeremy is perhaps an unlikely name for a Mexican toad - bit like naming a Siamese cat 'Bob', I suppose. :D

The toads were fed live common and field crickets once a day (from memory), which I bought from the dealer in large plastic boxes. They also ate mealworms, which were given maybe twice a day, in a dish, and the occasional dead field mouse as a treat. The crickets always found ways to escape - indeed, several months after the toads had died, I heard a cricket chirping in the middle of the night. Not good, given that the vivarium had been gone for almost 6 months!

Thanks, Elliott. I always rather liked the name of the late lamented Geoff Hamilton's cat - Denis.:)
