Most EXPENSIVE Pets In The World!

October 5, 2019


From cute fluffy lions to lavendar anacondas,
how much are you willing to spend on your pet?? Here are 13 of the most expensive pets ever!! 13. Ayam Cermani Chicken You might not think chickens are that exciting
but did you know that there are luxury chickens that are worth thousands of dollars?? The Ayam Cermani Chicken is a rare breed of
chicken from Indonesia. The Lamborghini of poultry, it is possibly
the rarest chicken in the world. It is completely black, from its feathers
to its tongue to its feet to even its bones! Everything about it is black which is what
makes it spectacular to look at in comparison to the common chicken. Many people have chickens as pets aside from
farmers as they can be quite affectionate animals but this particular breed would cost
a lot- they are are only sold in pairs for $5000. In Indonesia they are considered a sacred
animal and some say that eating their meat will cure some diseases (which hasn’t helped
their numbers) since there are only about 3500 left in the world. If you are a dedicated chicken collector,
this bird is for you! 12. Stag Beetle You might not think Beetles would make the
most affectionate pets but apparently they are extremely popular in Japan! I hear they make great listeners and are great
pets for apartments!! And if you don’t like cute and cuddly, this
guy is for you! The stag beetle has large antlers and mandibles
which make it look like a vicious creature but this is exactly what makes them worth
so much in comparison to the other common beetles that we have roaming around. Some people think that these are the cream
of the crop of beetles and are willing to pay large amounts to have them as pets – the
stag beetle is worth about $8,900. Because of its horns the most common form
of entertainment is bug fights! These beetle fights are on Japanese TV all
the time but kids actually don’t fight them because first they are nice beetles and second,
they are expensive!!! If you are interested, there are several Stag
beetles on Instagram like Spike the Beetle who is also famous for his artistic abilities. 11. Toucan Dreaming of having a toucan? You are not alone! They are beautiful birds that are wonderful
to look at, with their black bodies making their colourful beaks stand out even more! If you are already a bird person and have
parrots, you might think, gosh i could just add a toucan to the mix! Think again! These guys are high maintenance since they
have a very, VERY limited diet and they cannot have their wings clipped because they are
very high energy and need lots of space. Way more than other birds of the same size. Having a toucan will take over your life!! Many toucan owners often regret having gotten
one or even adopting one because they have to be home ALL THE TIME. Originally from the jungles of South America,
a toucan’s beak is kind of a honeycomb of bone that actually contains a lot of air and
isn’t really a great weapon. If you do have the appropriate means and passion
for these birds, you can get one for about $8,000. Of course this doesn’t include the tens
of thousands of dollars you will need for their food and special care they require. However if you are an affluent bird lover
and work from home, this pet is for you! And now for number 10, but first can you guess
the most expensive pet?? Let us know in the comments below! And be sure to subscribe if you are new here!!! 10. Savannah Cat The savannah cat is one of the most majestic
felines in the animal kingdom, with a long stride and tall body. A Savannah Cat is a hybrid cat crossed between
an African serval and a domestic cat. You get the advantage of them looking like
a wild cat but with a domestic personality which is much easier to handle for sure!! Savannahs are known for being affectionate,
and sweet tempered as long as they are socialized when they are young. They are often described as behaving like
dogs and they require more human interaction than a domestic cat. They are pretty strong and don’t like to
be alone. Savannah cats range from about $12,000 to
about $20,000. Why are they so expensive? It is hard to breed a wild serval with a domestic
cat in the first place. Bengals are also popular hybrid kitties with
beautiful markings. If any of you have a Savannah or a Bengal,
let us know your experience in the comments below! 9. De Brazza’s Monkey De Brazza’s monkey is one of the most expensive
MONKEYS in the world and is often kept as a pet in Africa. Aside from their fancy name, named after the
Italian explorer who found them, they have a fancy haircut with an orange crest on their
head, gentle eyes and a white muzzle from the nose down which makes it look like they
have a wise old man’s beard. Native to forest habitats in central Africa,
their main predators are humans, leopards, and eagles. Their defense mechanism is to freeze which
doesn’t really help them. They are most commonly seen in zoos since
not many places allow them as pets legally. Their personality and fur design make them
highly desirable and they can be worth anywhere from $10,000 to $15,000. 8. Hyacinth Macaw Macaws are popular exotic pets! They are pretty, easy to train and many find
them to be a loving pet. But the Hyacinth Macaw outshines all of the
others with its bright blue colouring with dashes of yellow. It is the largest of the flying parrot species
and is native to Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay. Hyacinths are known as gentle giants and are
highly intelligent. Even thought they aren’t the world’s best
talkers they can learn, but if they are not socialized properly or if they don’t have
enough room they can get neurotic and aggressive. If you are ready for a 60 year relationship,
and have a lot of experience with birds, then you can get a hyacinth macaw for about $14,000. 7. Lavender Albino Ball Python If you guys are afraid of snakes then watch
out because here’s one for you, and it costs more than a car!! These lavender albino pythons are the result
of a rare recessive gene which makes it a pretty shade of lavender with golden markings
and ruby red eyes. This specific python is known as one of the
world’s most beautiful snakes. Ball pythons in general are easy to take care
of if you know anything about snakes and you can get a common python for around $20.00. That’s kind of a scary thought already…. They need constant handling and eat about
once a week. They can grow to be 3-5 feet long so get ready,
and make sure you won’t change your mind because this investment will cost you about
$40,000. 6. Black Palm Cockatoo
Before you spend $16,000 on a bird, it’s important to know that these birds are not
very affectionate. They are very majestic birds and contrary
to their name they aren’t entirely black. They are more of a smoky gray with bright
red cheeks. Since they are so big, they are also known
as Goliath Cockatoos. They aren’t for the average pet owner since
they need 3-4 hours outside of their cage daily and need constant attention so its almost
like adopting another child. If you get one, know you are commiting to
an 80-90 year relationship! You have been warned…. 5. Chimpanzees Chimpanzees and baby monkeys can be irresistibly
cute probably because of their caring nature, their curiosity and the fact that they are
so similar to us. Many people think that getting a monkey is
like getting a human baby and that it would be a great substitute for a human companion. However it is important to note that Chimps
are wild animals and don’t really make good pets for the average person. Plus, owning one in many places is illegal. Chimp Haven is a rescue center that takes
in many former pet chimpanzees who have gotten too aggressive or too wild for their owners
to take care of. However to own one would cost about $60,000. 4. Arabian Horse. Arabian horses are one of the most recognized
horse breeds in the world, with their smaller head and dainty legs. They have had a strong presence throughout
history and have been valued for their toughness and swiftness. It was first bred by the Bedouins who only
allowed the finest horses to reproduce. They have been close to people for centuries
and they have an innate ability to bond with humans. They are friendly and loyal making them excellent
companion animals. The Arabian horse is known as horse royalty
because it is the oldest purebred in the world. It was the foundation horse for many modern
breeds including the thoroughbred. The first recorded Arabian horse belonged
to George Washington and he crossbred his horse with others in the cavalry to strengthen
the military. All of these qualities make these horses worth
around $100,000. 3. White Lion Cubs. Similarly to the Lavender python, these cute
little cubs are the product of a recessive gene which gives them their pure white fur. But before getting into how cute and unique
they are I should say that getting a lion as a pet is not to be taken lightly. They are illegal in many places and need constant
training and stimulation to keep them happy. They have been around since 1938 and are extremely
rare. White lions are sought after for their looks
and can be selectively bred for zoos and wildlife parks. The problem is that it usually involves inbreeding
between lions which hurts the strength of their domestic gene pool. Inbreeding can have major repercussions such
as hind limb paralysis or heart defects. These cubs can be purchased for around $140,000. However, even if you had the money it would
be extremely hard to get your hands on one. A Savannah cat might be a better choice! In fact you might as well get two! 2. Green Monkey Before you get too excited, I’m not talking
about actual green monkeys but a horse named Green Monkey. While he isn’t an Arabian horse, this two-year-old
American thoroughbred sold for guess how much?? Guess!! Go ahead! I’ll tell you in a bit. He was fathered from another racehorse named
Forestry. So, why is this horse on the list of most
expensive pets? Green Monkey earned his worth from the record-breaking
speed that he used to run before he was retired due to an injury. The first time that the horse raced, it ran
an eighth of a mile in 9.8 seconds which is an incredible speed. His grandfather was Storm Cat, one of the
most respected stallions of all time. Bidders found Green Monkey to be flawless
and even though he had never raced, he was purchased for….$16 million dollars!!! 1. Sir Lancelot Encore Finally, we have human’s best friend! If you have lost a beloved pet then this story
might not sound as strange to you. Everyone loves their dogs because, well you
don’t need me to tell you the reasons! Who doesn’t love being welcomed home, and
comforted. When they pass aways it’s a similar pain
to losing a family member or a loved one. So when Edgar and Nina Otto lost their yellow
lab, Sir Lancelot to cancer, they couldn’t take the pain. They spent $155,000 to get him cloned. The process worked and Sir Lancelot Encore
was born, affectionately known as Lancey. When they first heard that cloning technology
was starting to be developed, they had Lancelot’s DNA stored. Scientists in South Korea were successfully
able to complete the procedure. He is known as the world’s first cloned
dog in the world and is the father to many more litters. Because of his creation, he is worth an incredible
16 million dollars! Fun fact, Barbra Streisand has also recently
cloned her beloved late dog Samantha. For about $50,000 you can clone your dog too! Would you?? Thanks for watching! Do you have any of these pets? Let us know in the comments below! Be sure to subscribe and see you next time!!
