9 Great Pets That Aren’t Cats Or Dog


If you have outdoor space and want a larger pet, horses and ponies make great companions. You don't need to know how to ride them.

Guinea pig 

Guinea pigs were initially domesticated up to 4000 years BC in the Andean region of South America. They need a high-fiber diet and lots of vitamin C 

Ball Python 

Ball pythons originate from Sub-Saharan Africa, where they tend to live in grassland or open forests. They live up to 10 years in the wild but can live up to 30 years with proper care in captivity. 


Rabbits are one of the most abandoned pets, as often people don't realize that they have quite a lot of needs and can live up to 12 years. 

Tropical fish 

Tropical fish may look low maintenance but tend to have complex requirements and, depending on the species, can require a lot of space. 


Gerbils are great pets, but need careful looking after to ensure they live their best happy, healthy lives. The most common gerbil that is kept as a pet is the Mongolian gerbil.


Depending on the species and age of the tortoise when you purchase it, you may end up with a multi-generational companion who will get passed from parent to child if they aren't rehomed. 


Goldfish are great pets with a huge variety of types available including the Ranchu, bubble eye, pearl scale and comet.
