10. Bengal Cat

The Bengal cat is the result of a cross breed between a short haired black cat and an Asian Leopard. 
Their size is as small as domesticated cats yet they carry fur patterns similar to the appearance of a 
Leopard. It takes a lot of generations before the perfect crossbreed is achieved which is why they 
carry such a high price.

9. Snow Macaque

This endangered primate isn’t necessarily a good pet to have, which makes it more intriguing since a lot of wealthy pet owners seem to want to own one. They require constant attention and would need a large cage as they are most likely to escape the house and get lost. The Snow Macaque can live up to 30 years old.


8. Pastel Butter Stripe Ball Python

This python is heavily valued because of its rare genetic makeup that gives it a yellow stripe with a black border. The pastel butter stripe ball python can grow up to five feet and is generally known to be a passive snake. This makes it an excellent pet for owners who like exotic animals. You’d have to have at least $7,500 to buy one though.


7. Capuchin Monkey

The Capuchin monkey is probably one of the most famous animals in the world. This is due to numerous appearances on different movies and TV shows. You might notice the monkey in Ace Ventura or the 90s hit TV show Friends. Even though they can be trained and are highly intelligent, they require a lot of work and are often times difficult to handle.

6. Camel

Camels are one of the most expensive pets to have especially in the US. They’ve been known to be domesticated for around 5,000 years now providing services especially in desert countries. To own a camel you’d have to buy the animal at an extremely high price and pay for shipping. You’d also have to file in paperwork which requires you to have some expensive resources to back up your purchase.

5. Hyacinth Macaw

This endangered bird is considered as the largest flying parrot in the world. It can age up to 60 years and can develop a good amount of vocabulary. It is also extremely strong which is why owners are advised to train the bird early and give it a reinforced cage.


4. Palm Cockatoo

This bird is in high demand because of its unusual look. It is a very expensive pet to maintain as its diet consists of very expensive nuts and vegetables.


3. Savannah Cat

This is another cat that’s a result of cross-breeding a domesticated cat with a wild one – African Serval. They are very hard to produce and are often priced base on how much the cat retains Serval blood and characteristics.


2. Chimpanzee

Even though these monkeys are highly intelligent and are known to replicate a lot of human actions, they are very dangerous to own as pets. They are known to bite, climb and destroy a lot of property.


1. White Lion

The rare genetic mutation allows the famous king of cats to be born with a white coat of fur. Cubs are very expensive and very hard to purchase as most of them are born in zoos. It’s not advised to own them as pets as they are likely to grow into larger and more ferocious animals.


I hope you make the best choice if you can afford them.
