Multidisciplinary (Anonymous) says… "(Can we keep people as pets?)"This may help to answer that one:http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/bradford/7204543.stm

Truthfully, Sabrina sounds like a pretty common 4 pound dog.

When I was six, I thought I had a turtle that slept all the time. Turned out my parents had given me a rock.

My most unusual pet was a horse. And I had a younger sister that used to follow me everywhere like a puppy dog.

A gecko. Sadly, it didn't have a British accent ... but that was also probably a good thing, since it didn't try to sell me insurance.

A Tarsier until it committed suicide. -They actually commit suicide in captivity, no joke. They bang their heads into the cage until they die. Not really serious about having one as a pet though.Here's a mislabeled film of a Tarsier. This is NOT a Lemur.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTMf40...

Rats...... I don't know how "unique" they are but they are great pets. Unlike hamsters(especially female hamsters) they don't bite. They are incrediably intelligent animals, very social and just really playful, sweet animals.

When I was in third grade it was a salamander that my dad found while he was working on a plumbing project. He brought it home to show us and I decided to keep it. I named it "Zachary" and kept it for a couple of years before I let it go.

Had a pet snake once. Stayed to itself didn't bother anyone. Didn't have to walk it or give it food everyday or listen to chatter.

Unique: definition is one-of-a-kind. Singular. Without duplicate.Unusual: definition is rarely found. Non-typical. Odd.Are you asking about a one-of-a-kind pet? Or are you misusing a word?If the poor understanding of English was the only erroneous reportage, then oh well.However, sloppy use of the language is also accompanied by articles in this paper that show the inability to understand science, engineering, and definitions of many things. Tighten it up LJW.

rubberband--I did have a pet rock with my pet stick, but I had to hide the key under it, so they didn't get to play together.
