    Question Your Ultimate IRL pet?

    I was having an argument with my friend the other day about what would make the ultimate fantasy pet in the real world?

    He decided on a baby panda that never grew up, and could roll around sandshrew style by curling up into a ball.

    I on the other hand think that a fully grown, totally harmless grizzly bear that is not properly affected by gravity would be the best. It kind of just floats along... and is confused by what's happening permanently. Kind of like this:

    Let me know which of these guys you think would be the coolest, and also any other ideas you think beat it

    Personally I consider black bears and polar bears cuter than grizzlies.

    A pocket-sized unicorn.

    Or anything pocket-sized, really. Smaller = cuter and cooler. Also = less food and less mess.

    A pocket-sized giraffe would be excellent.

    A black bear that could change size and ignore the laws of physics like Jake the Dog, of course.

    In an ideal world I would have a pet cheetah (or more likely two) and a large estate they could run around in. Of course, that would also be totally impractical. In fact, I wouldn't say no to any big cat as a pet, provided it was properly domesticated (lol that). Ever since seeing Ring of Bright Water as a child, I've also wanted a pet otter.

    If I lived a few hundred years ago, I'd definitely be into falconry and have a few hunting birds. I know that it's still possible, but not exactly common these days. It's more of an occupation than a pastime.

    More realistically, but still pretty unlikely to happen, I'd like a pair of ferrets.

    I'm happy enough with domestic cats, though.

    Yes. though I'd want one a bit bigger, like in that DirecTV commercial. Ever since that came out I've said that if they could do that to a giraffe, I'd pay pretty much any price to get one. It's just too awesome not to.

    The interesting thing about cheetahs is that they can be tamed and trained, but humans failed to domesticate them because we can't get them to breed in captivity. It's too bad, we were so close to everyone being able to own a rocket cat.

    Since I'm allergic to dogs and my parents are allergic to cats, I'd say one of those intelligent speaking owls that run around from time to time. Like Archimedes.

    Cat.

    Out of all these, either a small house cat or a big cat of some kind would be awesome.


    If you mean a fantasy pet... pseudodragon. Small, gorgeous, and a conversation starter. People will go "wow" if you have a pseudodragon.

    I agree if i'm honest, especially with the black bears.

    Grizzlies are bigger and more deadly though, which makes it funnier that it's constantly suspended in mid air with no control over it's movement

    Polars are generally bigger than grizzlies. Even some female polar bears are bigger than some male grizzlies. And kodiaks are bigger than grizzlies too. As are grolars.

    Honestly, a sentient AI. Not sure if that counts as a pet, though. More like a "friend."
