You go to all that trouble to domesticate it then use it as a football/rugby ball?

Still going to have to roll with my fire breathing snow leopard. It really hasn't faded over the weekend for me. I really want one.

A llama. You might think that they're already pretty domesticated, but in reality they're totally bad-ass and they just don't give a shit. They already use them to guard Christmas trees because they are just so frickin' aggressive that they will totally stomp a trespasser's kidneys out without even waiting for him to show any ID. I'm pretty sure that an early proto-llama was a key factor in the extinction of the dinosaurs.

My first thought was a tiger then I remembered that loads of people have them as pets anyway.


Good point. I did think of a shark so I could train it to eat cave divers but my bath isn't big enough and I'd get banned for such a suggestion so I won't

I thought of dolphins which are cool but too close to dmestication to be worthy of this thread so...

A rhino would be cool, particularly if you could train it to charge people/things you didn't like. But I don't fancy clearing up the crap from that

So I don't have an answer

I'd have me a big fluffy polar bear.

Like Blubey I could ride him, but not to the tip as I wouldn't want him to get dirty. He'd only be ridden out in good weather; I'm a fair-weather polar bear rider see. Or at least i would be.

He'd be a fab rug / footstool, and I could use his ears to keep the remote in.

And at night I'd snuggle up to him and would save myself a fortune in central heating bills. But that would probably be outweighed by his food bills - not sure how much seals cost or whether if he was truely domesticated I could give him dog food?

Did you see the Sunday Times Magazine yesterday? The centre pages had an amazing photo of a grizzly eating a trout in a lake in the Rockies. The cool thing was the camera was half underwater so you could see it's swimming paws as well. Really cool.

Did you also watch the Ipcress File last night? If so, the coincidence would be too great to bear...

A gorilla.

Imagine sitting in an armchair of an evening, watching a nature programme or maybe just staring into space contemplating it's confinement.

It would get up like a cat/dog and follow you to the front door to see who's there. I need one.


:rofl: You could bounce tennis balls off it's head and it wouldn't even blink. And teach it to play drums. Laugh together as it comically pops the head off a neighbour's child like a champagne cork. And when it died of misery, you could have it turned into a costume for yourself.

I'd make mine wear a top hat and monocle and little cuffs on his wrists. Then I'd give him a cigarette holder and walk him through town on a Sunday. He'd be impeccably polite and tip his hat to ladies but I'd have trained him to have a Pavolvian repsonse to the sound of a charity tin being shaken. This would cause him to revert to type with hilarious results.

If you go to Longleat they have a Gorilla on an island in the lake. Since its mate died they gave it TV to stop it being bored (he is too old for a new mate)

The BBC state
"Their favourite programmes include cartoons and animal documentaries."


Although I have seen other favourites quoted

Like a gorilla double bluff - nice!

It'd be pretty awesome actually, if they became like a loyal manservant and could respond to a whistle or something, a bit like a massive simian KITT.

For example, you'd be bored out of your mind at a crap black tie dinner and you'd left Sydney in the car park to watch the Bentley. When the psychopathic old woman who looked like an actual raisin came over to talk to you, you could simply whistle and seconds later the doors would be blown off their hinges as Sydney comes screaming in, in full battle mode and rains down a flurry of blows on raisin woman.

I'm so over my fire breathing battle snow leopard - so last Friday. Papa's got a brand new bag...
