  7. LV on June 20, 2022 at 10:21 pm

    Correction… Betta fish are fine with appropriate companions… Platties, neon tetras, Cory fish etc

  8. sage on June 20, 2022 at 10:23 pm

    parakeets, hermit crabs, and hamsters are not dorm pets.. they require lots of attention, time, and money.

  9. Creative Craft on June 20, 2022 at 10:24 pm

  13. Annoying Seagull on June 20, 2022 at 10:30 pm

    Please, PLEASE do you research before getting a pet rock, so many people get them as cute little pebbles and don’t realize what big boulders they will grow to be. Not to mention they are immortal, so the pet is a LIFELONG commitment.
    Do your research!

  14. Remie-Rae on June 20, 2022 at 10:30 pm

    Ahh this is so wrong I don’t wanna be annoying but dudeee

  15. Lorenzo on June 20, 2022 at 10:31 pm

  16. Andril chk 🌝 on June 20, 2022 at 10:31 pm

  18. Skid🧟🦑 on June 20, 2022 at 10:32 pm

  19. lynettebr on June 20, 2022 at 10:33 pm

    "Hamsters are not typically agressive"
    Tell that to my 8 year old sister who walked in on one her hamsters eating the other.

  20. TOFU [V8] on June 20, 2022 at 10:33 pm

    The song is just like Elizabeth moriahs intro- 😯 so cool

  21. Ricostaypaid_ on June 20, 2022 at 10:34 pm

    Parakeets make WAY too much noise and they’re not easy pets.

  22. TahitianTreat SkeetJuice on June 20, 2022 at 10:34 pm

    11:33 comedy isnt for u. cool vid tho. lol

  23. Pickles • 33 years ago on June 20, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    Dorm rooms usually does not allow reptiles

  24. Andril chk 🌝 on June 20, 2022 at 10:36 pm

    Just get a plant dude.

  25. Astrodazen on June 20, 2022 at 10:37 pm

    This is so wrong

  26. Kitten Mimi on June 20, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    Remember to never keep bettas in a cube, 5 gallon tank minimum. Also they can live with other fishes like tetras

  27. Gabby on June 20, 2022 at 10:40 pm

    Why is the beigning Moriah Elizabeths intro

  28. ShortSea on June 20, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    How about an authentic Pet Rock? (affiliate link).

  31. john treat on June 20, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    This is a joke

  32. Mudassar Shaik on June 20, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    Pet rock ? Seriously? Thts so insane

  33. MythicMing on June 20, 2022 at 10:48 pm

    You should have put on avocado seed they grow and don’t break

  34. Dee's Creatures on June 20, 2022 at 10:52 pm

    You can get dwarf frogs and tetras bc someone i know has them and care’s for them all on ther own and there 12 you can hold the dwarf frogs in your hand under water and there all interesting animals and can go together you clean the poop and food out once a week and that takes 5 mins then once a month you wipe everything down and there food lasts forever so the only thing you will need to contune to buy is filters witch are $7 and you dont need to get a new filter that often and the tank can be only 5 gallons and the fish and frogs alone are cheap

  35. Samu Frog on June 20, 2022 at 10:52 pm

    No. Birds are not easy animals. Under no circumstances buy any bird ever if you do not have the time and money to provide ample space, a healthy diet, and love and attention. They need LOTS OF CARE. I can’t stress enough that no birds are fit for a dorm pet.

  36. Lun on June 20, 2022 at 10:52 pm

    Do NOT buy hermit crabs. They are stripped from their natural habitat, unlike other amphibians and reptiles that are captive bred. It is detrimental to their ecosystem. Abuse with hermit crabs are so common, and even if you are educated and treat them accordingly, it is extremely unethical. Please do not buy hermit crabs.

  37. ProudHeroUser on June 20, 2022 at 10:54 pm

    Hamsters are nocturnal and will make loud noises at night (running around in their wheel, climbing, chewing on the cage, etc.) Not exactly ideal for a student who has exams.

  38. Balaji GV on June 20, 2022 at 10:55 pm

    Parakeets are not good dorm pets as they are a type of parrot.they need a good sized cage with other parakeets and need a minimum of 45 minutes out side their cage flying time a day.

  39. LuckyBlock_Boy on June 20, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    The fact that there is so much info for the pet rock is so funny. I’m getting one

  40. Brian’s Brain on June 20, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    Hermit crabs arnt low maintenance pets…

  41. 🌿WaLtEr GrOvE🌿 on June 20, 2022 at 11:00 pm

    Pls. Dont. Mesh or wired wheels will cause bumblefoot, an infection. Small cages like that are horrible. DO NOT house hamsters together

  42. Skyla Henry on June 20, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    do NOT get terrestrial hermit crabs. They’re 100 times more difficult to keep than advertised. For example, they heat and humidity, at least 6 inches of substrate, a wide selection of unpainted shells, salt and fresh water, enrichment, and more.

  43. • ⭑ ɢʟɪᴛᴛᴇʀ ⭑• on June 20, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    Budgies are not easy and low maintance pets. They require a lot of care, attention and space. There is a lot of misinformation about birdcare. So please do your research before u get a bird or any pet in general. Take my word for it birds are hard to take care of, U can trust me because I own one. They also live very long so keep that in mind.

  44. Star on June 20, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    Parakeets are EXTREMELY loud, messy, smelly, and requires a large cage. Not good for dorms at all!

  45. Srength2thend on June 20, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    I thought the pet Rock was a joke

  46. Childish Kãyiã on June 20, 2022 at 11:12 pm

    Not all Hampers enjoy climbing and hamsters are more active a dusk and through out the night.

  47. Elaine Chao on June 20, 2022 at 11:12 pm

    4:41 is this a parody or are they for real

    Or are they just saying something controversial to get more comments

  48. Notification Gang Member on June 20, 2022 at 11:12 pm


  49. Josh :D on June 20, 2022 at 11:12 pm

    I’m surprised this wasn’t mentioned but be aware that SNAILS REPRODUCE ASEXUALLY!! And in large numbers too so its easy for it to get out of control

  50. Karan on June 20, 2022 at 11:12 pm
