Are you thinking about a hamster or a fish as a pet? Are you wondering whether to choose an aquatic or land animal? You don't have to choose, you can have both! An eel can breath air and live under water. Eels make amazing pets for many reasons. Eels are gentle, but not as boring as a fish, and you will have so much fun playing with your eel for at least ten years. And of course, eels can do amazing things. What amazing things, you ask? Buy an eel and you'll find out yourself!
"Eels are gentle, loving pets."
Eels make great pets because they are very gentle. They never bite humans, and even if you put your finger in an eel's mouth, it wouldn't hurt. Eels are perfectly safe to hand-feed. Isn't it amazing that eels are a carnivore that doesn't bite?
Eels are also great fun. You can play with it outside of its tank for five to ten minutes while it breathes air. They are very good at hide and go seek, except that you'll always be the seeker. Eels can fit in a fifty gallon tank easily, so you can keep it in your room and play with your eel when you are lonely and need a friend.
Oh, and let's not forget that eels can do amazing things! Eels are great escape artists. Be careful because they can escape from their tank and die. Eels can swim really fast too! Head to Google and search for "See Mr. Eel Escapes (Fire Eel)" to watch an eel swim unbelievably fast. Eels can also survive for a short while in a tank that is smaller than they are. What an adaptable pet!
Clearly, eels are the coolest pets ever. Remember when you go to get your eel that cold water makes male eels. Also remember to leave time for all the ammonia to leave the water before you add your eel. Eels are such great pets because they are fun, they can live in a very small tank, and they are gentle. Eels would also be the perfect pet for a school like P.S. 33!
