What unusual animal would you like?

Watch our report

A family in Kent have got some unusual animals hopping around their garden... wallabies.

They're not tame pets, but they do belong to the family and that got us thinking - what unusual animal would you like to have at home?

Miley Cyrus has said she'd like a kangaroo and Zac Efron wants a Liger - a cross between a lion and a tiger - but what about you?

Would you go for something exotic and scaly, big and furry, or small and cute?

Maybe you'd create you're own animal, a bit like a liger but mixing two other animals instead?
