Do you have a Petsmart near you? They carry Fire Belly toads and hermit crabs.
You also might be able to find a small reptile that could live in it but I don't know what it would be.
eh...I live in canada...and where I live is like the lesser known part of canada, so we don't get much around here...finding a firebelly toad would be extreamly rare, same with a hermit crab....I've seen hermit crabs before though...but thats when I was a child. I haven't seen anymore since then... .-. And I've never seen a firebelly toad there...I've seen a pacman frog and a white tree frog I think...but thats about it...I could possible order a hermit crab or a firebelly...but I'm not sure if they do orders for pets they don't have in stock.
the other petstore I have around me is a little bit more for exotic pets...like lionfish/puffers/sharks/eels/koi etc... but they don't carry lizards or amphibians....but it would be a good place to look for a fish I can't find else where...
saylor: ...I'm scared of those(and most insects)...I could keep em...but I wouldn't want to touch them wich would make a huge problem...the only insects I'm not scared of...that I can name off are earthworms,butterflys,moths,ladybugs,mantis(actual ly I love praying mantis),rhino beetles,crickets,grasshoppers,caterpillars...truth fully I'm only scared of the ones I don't know much about...cause I don't know if their calm or dangerous or etc...
so...puffers are out...
so the only thing is a betta/hermit crab/firebellytoad/snails/shrimp... ._.
not much of a choice also considering finding a firebelly and hermit is rare so I can basicly strike that off...so betta/snail/shrimp...
I guess the only choice I have is a betta fish... .-. well...that went fullcircle faster then I expected...
noting much else to put in there then... .-.
