Here’s a list of most expensive pets in the world. Those pets can be owned with very high price. There are some reasons why those pets become so expensive, whether it’s rare species or really cute species. So Let’s take a look the list of top 10 most expensive pets in the world
10. Chinese Crested Hairless Puppies: $4,000-$5,000
These toy dogs are popular for their unique looks and entertaining personalities. They grow to be about 10-13 pounds, have soft hair-less bodies and tufts of hair on their paws, tail, and head. These dogs are energetic and playful, making them great family pets. The most famous Chinese Crested Dog was Sam, who was crowned the world’s ugliest dog from 2003-2005.
9. Savannah Cat: $4,000-$10,000
The Savannah Cat is bred by mating the African Serval with a smaller domestic cat. The Savannah inherently has a much more difficult breeding process, because an African Serval is 40lbs and undomesticated and breeding it with a domestic house cat is problematic. Concurrently, the gestation periods between the two animals are different. Due to these factors, the Savannah is an expensive and rare breed of cat.
8. Mona Guenon: $6,000
The Mona Guenon’s natural habitat is within the Western African tropical forests, however this animal is capable of adapting to any forest environment. Therefore, despite special permits and licenses to own this animal, it is not considered an endangered specie.
7. Debrazzas Monkey: $10,000
The DeBrazza’s Monkey is easily recognized by its white beard and yellowish gray fur. The animal will generally live for about 22 years. Though many people do shell out the hefty price for this primate, they become disappointed when the docile and tender babies grow to become unpredictable and hostile adults.
6. Striped Ball Python: $10,000
Pythons have always been popular pets, and come in many different species, sizes and with unique markings. One of the most sought after markings is a continuous yellow dorsal stripe. Currently, only one breeder sells these snakes.
5. Hyacinth Macaw: $6,500-12,000
The Hyacinch Macaw of South America is the largest macaw and the largest flying parrot species in existence. It has solid blue feathers, and grows to be anywhere from 3-4 pounds. Unfortunately, their popularity as pets has taken a toll on their numbers in the wild, which is one of the reasons their captivity prices are so high.
4. Reticulated Albino Type II Tiger Python: $15,000
Famed for their longness or ‘longosity’, Reticulated Pythons are some of the longest snakes in the world. One of its most distinguishing features is the tiger like pattern along its back.
3. Lavender Albino Python Female: $20,000
Discovered in 2003, this African snake sports a lavender color and bright ruby red eyes. This makes for a great conversation piece when you bring women over.
2. Chimpanzee: $60,000-$65,000
Chimpanzees are one of the first primates to be kept as pets. Common in African villages, this idea of having Chimps as pets spread out to Europe and America. Chimps are some of the smartest pets you could own and with proper training can do a lot of you household tasks. (i.e. cleaning, accounting, walking the dog.)
1. White Lion Cubs: $138,000
White Lions do exist in the wild but are extremely rare. Their whiteness is as a result of a recessive gene. Breeders have attempted to breed them in captivity but the results are often not good as inbreeding causes the White Lions to be born with debilitating health issues such as lung and respiratory problems and mental retardation.
