These foxes are incredibly cute and aloof. While they’re still wild animals, they can still be great pets because they’re pretty social and smart!

3. Sugar Gliders

Some people love to adopt chinchillas, hamsters, rabbits, and other rodents. While they’re super cute, some of these rodents can be a bit disappointing because they don’t easily bond with their owners.

Sugar gliders, on the other hand, are super active and fun while staying lovely and open for friendship and bonding. The pocket-sized pet isn’t actually a rodent, but more closely related to the koala.

Sugar gliders are from Australia but are a common pet in the UK.

4. Axolotl

Axolotls, also known as the Walking Mexican Fish, are one of the most bizarre and unique creatures you may have seen in your life!

5. African Pygmy Hedgehogs

Spiky but lovely! A lot of people don’t know that some hedgehogs species are excellent pets. They’re lovely and compassionate once they establish a good relationship with the owner.

Since they require specific handling, owning an African Pygmy hedgehog might have a learning curve, so they’re usually not recommended as your first ever pet.
