These Are the Most Expensive Pets To Own

Anteater

29. Anteater

The anteater, close relative of the sloth, will have you out $3,500 to $8,000. The solitary long-snouted vermilingua needs to climb branches heavy enough for its girth, and its unusually low body temperature means its habitat must always hover around room temperature.

Its owner needs to provide only soft food and insects because the anteater doesn’t have any teeth. And not only are they prone to respiratory diseases, but it’s also hard to find any veterinarians who can treat anteaters.
