18) Nano Mice
Physical Description: Itty, bitty, tiny little mice, each about the size of a marble. They come in all standard colors -- white, brown, chocolate and spotted -- with both plain and tufted tails.
For those with a miniatures fetish, or who have an extremely limited budget for pet food. Nano mice are usually sold by the handful, and will only live for a year or two. They require very little food, and their squeaks are almost inaudibly quiet to the human ear. Often sold as an alternative to fish, or other office pets. Nano mice are also a common gift on Easter, chicks being both noisier and uglier when full-grown. They are always sold sterilized.Go to Comment
19) Berrilian Boulders (aka "Pet Rocks")
Physical Description: Usually a small, smooth chunk of inky black stone, though some rarer varieties have striations and even embedded crystals. Can be small enough to put in one's pocket, or as large as a basketball, given its age at "harvest".
Berrilian Boulders are semi-intelligent beings, with surprisingly advanced senses. They can see ultraviolet light, hear into the super-sonic, and may even have mild psychic tendencies (though this is as yet unconfirmed). Unfortunately, they can't really do all that much with the information they receive, having no known means of locomotion. What they can do is sing, and occasionally vibrate. They emit mildly haunting melodies which change based on how they are feeling, their environment, and with the presence of others of their kind. When talking with a Berrilian Boulder one always gets the sense of being listened to, and the Boulder will often respond with a change of song.Go to Comment
