What kind of animals do you own that are not dogs or cats?

Growing up, the word "pet" always mean dogs or cats to me. That's all we had while growing up. Even now, I have the cutest dog in the entire world, Ollie. However, I had cousins that had other pets. In fact, one cousin had an iguana and a ferret. As much as I loved the ferret (which stunk), I was just as terrified of the iguana.

There's a whole wild world when it comes to pets.

I've known people to own hamsters, turtles, horses, goats, chickens, snakes, lizards, birds... you name it. Looking beyond the dog and cat world, there are some popular pets out there. And, not surprisingly, each state has its own must-have pet. Thanks to Insider, we have the entire list sorted alphabetically by state.

Wyoming's most popular pet (other than a dog or cat) is a hedgehog.

With all of the animals we have to choose from as pets, this little guy reigns supreme, behind dogs and cats. Most small animal social media posts refer to our quilled friends. I cant get enough of those sweet face, but unfortunately they aren't the most cuddly creatures... Ouch!

Have you ever owned a hedgehog?
