Dogs, cats and fish remain the most popular pets in Britain, according to a survey carried out for a leading pet website – but owners also revealed their unusual taste in animals.

Pet lovers young and old revealed that they owned – or would consider buying or adopting – pygmy hedgehogs, frogs and snails. Large snakes such as boa constrictors also proved popular.

While the vast majority of pet owners were conservative in their tastes, some showed imaginative pet purchases.

"We were amazed by some of the answers we received," said Mark Singleton of the Pets4Homes.co.uk pet classifieds and advice website, “and it’s obvious that despite some of the weird animals people have that they care for them just as well as any conventional pet.

“Pygmy hedgehogs are very popular among exotic pet owners, and they are surprisingly low maintenance; while tarantulas are popular because of their obvious shock value. Once you’ve invested in the right equipment they, too, are easy to look after. We probably wouldn't advise cuddles, though.”

Britain's most usual pets:
1. Pygmy hedgehog
2. Tarantula
3. Meerkat
4. Tree frog
5. Giant snail
6. Owls
7. Boa constrictor
8. Scorpion
9. Chameleon
10. Chipmunk

Britain's top 10 pets:
1. Fish
2. Dogs
3. Cats
4. Rabbits/guinea pigs
5. Birds
6. Chickens
7. Hamsters
8. Rats
9. Tortoises
10. Horses
