Top 10 Best Exotic Pets for Small Space

Hermit Crabs

They need more room than that. A 10-gallon tank can comfortably house a couple of medium or a few small hermit crabs.


Tarantulas require an adventurous caretaker, but these animals aren't as venomous as people think.

Emperor Scorpions

Emperor scorpions are fine living in a 10-gallon tank, and they're definitely interesting to watch.


Mice are great for small spaces. Male mice are a bit trickier, as they will usually fight when kept together.

Hissing Cockroaches

If you live in a rental, your landlord might not be so keen on you keeping a cockroach as a pet.

Frogs and Toads

Dwarf clawed frogs are very small and completely aquatic, and a gallon tank should suit them.


Need at least a 2-square-foot cage that has space for their food, chew toys, and a covered area in which they can hide and sleep.

Giant Millipedes

Giant African millipedes are definitely not traditional pets and might not be permitted where you live.


they're a good option if you don't have room for an elaborate vivarium setup.


They typically are nice, easygoing snakes that can live around 20 years with proper care.
