Three of the Cutest Exotic Pets of Athletes
3) Sammy the African Spurred Tortoise
Colin Kaepernick, quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, is the proud owner of this 115-pound beauty. Kaepernick was only 10 years old when he got Sammy. At the time, he could fit him the palm of his hand. Those days are long gone. He can barely carry Sammy with two hands these days. Sammy, who has his own twitter, can live up to 150 years old!
2) Smoke and Gee the Ferrets
Visanthe Shiancoe (former tight end of the Tennessee Titans) owns these two furry friends. Illegal in some places, ferrets are like cats and rats in one. There’s unfortunately no rabies vaccine perfected yet, so if you want to live your own elite life, weigh the pros and cons.
1) Pupilo the Lemur
Chad Ochocinco (Johnson) has a tiger, eels and this adorable creature. Lemur the Pupilo looks like a ferret crossed with a raccoon, but he’s actually a primate. What’s the total price of his exotic pets? If you want to live this elite, it’ll run your about $75,000.
