Americans love their pets—and a new poll shows just how much we dote on our critters, while revealing some curious attitudes toward animals (and people).

4. On preferences for an exotic pet, 26 percent said they would choose a tiger, 20 percent a giraffe, 18 percent a dinosaur, and 16 percent an elephant.

Sure, those tigers, giraffes, dinosaurs and elephants are cute as hell when they're babies, but when they get too big, they'll just end up in the pound, abandoned. :rolleyes:

It's an essential service to people who 'prefer' rescue animals, or so I've been told ...

Put me down for a Dyplodocus, btw!

No thank you to a dinosaur, we're done with reptiles. We had an Iguana many years ago, then a boa constrictor, and then a rat.
