Sure, you could buy a dog, or a cat.. but that’s been done to death. How about a tiger, or a wolf, or a kangaroo even? Sure, you can’t afford such exotic animals, and besides: your neighbors will think you’ve gone crazy. However, if you’re a celebrity you can get away with almost anything. Here’s a list of the most exotic pets out there, and their famous owners. What would you go for?
10. Mike Tyson – White Bengal Tigers
In the late 80’s, Mike Tyson was unstoppable in the ring. As a result, the champ had Bentleys, big mansions, mink coats and dating hot babes. So, Tyson’s pet couldn’t have been ordinary; and it wasn’t. He chose rare white Bengal tigers, three of them to be exact, and each of them cost $70,000 to own. Not really something I enjoy, especially since these rare and beautiful animals should be able to live in the wilderness and live freely.
9. Megan Fox – Pot-Bellied Pig
Now, there’s something you don’t see every day. Megan Fox is one of the most attractive babes out there, but in her private life things are quiet. She has two children with her husband Brian Austin Green and she just lover her dogs, birds and squirrel. She also owned a cute pot-bellied pig, named Piggy Smalls, that she later had to let go. Odd choice.
8. French Montana – Monkey
Bronx rapper French Montana is rapidly turning himself into one of the A-list rappers on the scene. Dating Khloe Kardashian, and purchased a $5 million mansion doesn’t hurt the repl and neither do his two pet baby tigers and a monkey. The pet monkey is named Julius Ceasor and it was a birthday gift from Las Vegas rapper Mally Mall. I didn’t know Santa was so exotic about presents.
7. Paris Hilton – Kinkajou
A kinkajou is a cute rainforest mammal, mostly found in Central and South America. Paris Hilton owns one of these pets and she named it Baby Luv. I guess everything fits right at home in this picture, there’s nothing more to comment.
6. George Clooney – Pot-Bellied Pig
George Clooney has settled down with his new wife Amal Alamuddin. However, the longest relationship the actor had been involved in before this might have been with his pet 300-lb pig named Max. Yes, Clooney owned the pig for 18 years and became extremely attached to it, but it passed away in 2006. Supposedly Clooney even slept together in the same bed as Max at times.
5. Kristen Stewart – Wolf-Dog Hybrid
Kristen Stewart made a ton of money from starring in the hugely successful Twilight movies, whici I hate, by the way. However, I have to admit opting out for a majestic wolf-dog hybrid made Kristin grow in my eyes. Stewart’s mother raises these beautiful creatures and Kristen owns one herself. Isn’t Jack beautiful?
4. Vanilla Ice – Wallaroo
Vanilla Ice is no stranger to life’s ups and downs. But with all his interesting live events and properties, the one-hit wonder had to own some unorthodox pets which include a wallaroo named Bucky Buckaroo and a billy goat named Pancho. That’s a bit funny to me.
3. Kirstie Alley – Lemurs
It’s interesting to see someone is interested in King Julian’s relatives and subjects. A lemur is small primate with cute buggy eyes that is found mostly in the island of Madagascar, known for their nocturnal lifestyle and slow pace of movement. The famous actress happens to own 3 pet Lemursm which she has even made them beneficiaries in her will.
2. Salvador Dali – Anteater
The eclectic artist and his very unusual pet couldn’t be left off of our list. Salvador Dali was a leading pioneer in the school of art known as surrealism and lead an eccentric and unorthodox lifestyle. In the late 60’s you could see Dali to stroll down the streets of Paris with his pet anteater. Like a boss!
1. Elvis Presley – Pet Kangaroo
It seems that the King of Rock loved animals, especially his pet kangaroo. The adorable marsupial was a present from agent Lee Gordon, but the animal wound up being donated to the Memphis Zoo.
