We've babysat a minature horse. The kid's were falling over themselves doing stuff for it. Bloody gorgeous things. If I could have anything I'd love to own a donkey or two.

Good luck finding a pet Aunty.

Most normal rabbits know their boundaries Dots.

Just a tip Dots.... don't bother going to the expense decorating a room for the new baby... I can see it cuddled up in bed with you everynight for cuddles :lol:

Too late, Mr Dotsie's already knocked the wall out. Can't stop him now, he needs to put it back up again!

Spot on Del...I just read Sister Jen's post and was ready to burn the computer just in case young Vaguette saw that one and started getting ideas :doh:

At this point we seem to have made an accord about hermit crabs. However I did just read a description of their temperament as "Social, non-responsive" which was perplexing until the webpage later explained that they have a lovely time socialising with each other, but are likely to meet humans with a long steely stare...or it may possibly just hide.

It depends. We have had some hermit crabs that loved tobhave a wander around the table... the girls even had fun making a hermit crab playground in a plastic shell forbbthem... you know those one you can buy like a wading pool size. We has the double so cats couldn't get in when it wasn't hermit crab heaven. If you do get a shell just make sure you only put an inch or two of sand it it ... and the steep sides combat escape plans. And NEVER leave them alone..they're master's of escape. The shell is purely for the kids to play with them. A kitty litter tray is just the size for indoor play. But their HOME must be secure.

We first had a small aquarium and they climbed claw over claw up the selastic joins and out. So we put two lids on.. they do need air. One particular smart one used to climb the selastic and push the glass over.

They do need sea salt baths too. That's fun for the kids.

Some are lots of fun. Some love to nip.

Once... one of the little ones had a crab on her hand when it really grabbed her skin hard... I don't know what was louder... the scream of pain.... or the scream of horror when she realised that by flicking her hand instinctively the poor hermit crab had flown across the room and hit the wall . It survived... she never touched them again.

Some ARE fun though. Lots of sites in the net about them.

Cute picture! So, you've settled on a hermit crab then? Love Del's idea of a hermit crab playground. Our girls had pet rats, but I'm guessing that's a no-no over there. They were very sweet pets though. Smart, cute, didn't bite.

Oddly enough, that was one QI question that I knew the answer to. :D
