If you are a pet lover or thinking of owning a pet, you should look at some of these most expensive pets worldwide. I won’t ask you to buy any of these because the price and maintenance would cost you a lot all along.
However, almost everyone likes to have a pet in their house, and if you think you can get at least one of these expensive pets, then I’m here with some good options for you.
Here’s the list of some of the most expensive pets around the world!
1. Green Monkey Horse $16 Million
Let’s start with this most expensive horse in the world. This is an American thoroughbred racehorse, and the reason for him being so expensive is his speed. He ran a mile in just 9.8 seconds in his first-ever race. He was first auctioned for $16 million in 2009. Would you like to have one of these expensive pets?
2. Tibetan Mastiff $2 Million
Now we have this incredibly giant dog. He has been in the limelight since he was a year old and sold for $2 million. Their life span is 10 to 12 years. They aren’t dangerous towards their family. Instead, this breed is protective and watchful. But they are powerful, muscular, and massive. Oh, and expensive too!
3. Missy, upto $1,200,000
Missy is a Holstein cow, and she was auctioned for $1.2 million in 2009. The Holstein breed is known as the world’s highest-production dairy animal, and this is the reason why Miss Missy can be one of the most expensive pets you wish to own.
4. Sir Lancelot Encore, The First Cloned Dog $155,000
The interesting thing about this cloned dog is that when the original Labrador Sir Lancelot died in 2008 at 11 due to cancer, his owners paid a fortune to clone him because he was very close to them. They even have a shrine for their deceased pets. It was the first-ever cloned dog, and it cost them $155,000. He managed to be one of the expensive pets even after dying.
5. White Lion Cubs $140,000
Who am I kidding? I mean, we all know lions are expensive pets! There is nothing new in it apart from the fact that these white cubs are pretty rare, and they can only be born if both parents have a recessive mutation in a gene that makes melanin. And that is why these cubs are quite expensive pets to own!
6. Arabian Horse, up to $100,000
I am fond of horses. But this Arabian Horse would cost me more than my savings to buy. This breed originated from Arabian Peninsula. They are known for their love and affection towards humans.
The Arabian horse is one of the oldest breeds globally, and you can easily recognize this horse with a distinctive head shape and long-tail carriage. That’s what makes it one of the most expensive pets in the world.
7. CC, The First Cloned Cat $50,000
Since we have talked about the first cloned dog, then how about the first cloned cat? Unfortunately, you can’t have this cat because she is no more. Copycat, aka CC, was born in 2002 to a surrogate mother, making it one of the most expensive pets.
She was cloned at the University of Texas with $50,000 funding from a business looking forward to cloning pets. CC gave birth to 3 kittens naturally in 2006. She died in March 2020 at the age of 17.
8. Cato, The Bengal Cat $41,435
You can’t buy CC, but you have an option of these Bengal Cats. A Londoner first purchased Cato in 1998 for a record. These cats are bred from domestic cats and Asian leopards. And this is what makes them exotic and most expensive pets.
9. Savannah Cat $20,000
So this $20,000 cat is a cross between a domestic cat and a serval wild African cat with medium size and long ears. This unusual cross became popular in 2001, and TICA accepted it as a registered breed. Now it is one of the most expensive pets.
10. Capuchin Monkey $8,500
Last but not least, we have this pretty creature on the list. However, these monkeys are less expensive pets than others mentioned above but still managed to be on the list of most expensive pets.
Capuchin monkeys are New World Monkeys from a Cebinae subfamily. The reason Capuchin is so expensive is that it has been used in movies and sitcoms.
Let’s wrap it up quickly since you got the idea of all the expensive pets. Which pet would you like to own?
