Alpacas spit a lot and are mostly found in South America. They weigh 125 to 175 pounds and there height is about 40 inches (adults). Okay, this may seem weird, but they share a… uh… dung pile. Okay, I think that’s enough for the Alpaca!! 🙂


Bearded Dragon-  Bearded dragon Ryuu.jpg Bearded Dragons are from Australia and now, in America, there an awesome pet to have!! These lizards are omnivores and have a lifespan of 12-20 years old. In rare cases, the Bearded Dragon lives to 20 years, but it can. They also love to eat crickets and they need sand in their cage. 

Beta Fish- Betta cambodian.jpg  The average lifespan for this colorful fish is 2-5 years. Beta are also 6- 8cm long (adults). These lovely fish are very aggressive and should not be in a tank with another beta. The beta can be in a tank with other fish like snails and cleaning fish. The beta has a diet of about 2 pellets of food a week! But some of these fish like different foods like flakes and freeze dried worms.


Cats- Other images of cats Cats are very poular house pets. There are many types of house pets like for example siamese cats.  Cats get up around 5.5 to 16 pounds depending on the type. Some cats will kill animals like lizards, birds, and mice and bring them to there owner as if saying ‘Here you go! ‘. Don’t worry, ther is nothing wrong with your cat if they do this, it is there natural hunting instinct. There coat color varies from black and white to brown and black (just like the picture). !-More info on cats @ 

Chinchilla- Chin resting on sofa.JPG Chinchilla’s are about the size of a rabbit (Chinchilla- ) with a lifespan of 10- 15 years. They should NOT eat rabbit pellets, instead they should be fed chinchilla pellets and a little bit of raisins, cheerios, and bread. Surprisingly, they love bird toys, and they are avid chewers. They love to take dust baths, too, but it can sometimes be a little messy.
