Edit: I forgot rabbits, horses, and goats as options! Alas.

When my life settles out enough that I feel I can have pets (which is to say, when I'm not traveling nearly as much, or have a co-resident who will share the responsibilities with me), I want to have tarantulas and snakes.

Not really sure what kind of snakes, beyond "friendly to being picked up and held". Walking around the house with the snake drooped over my shoulders will sortof become the way things work.

Snaaaakes! I like them, but haven't lived with people who were ok with them much. I had one briefly because the original owner couldn't take care of it.

I didn't have anything I cared for myself, not even plants, until the end of college (and then, just plants). The next door neighbors had a dog and a cat, and my friends had other dogs I'd help walk and stuff, and hamsters and gerbils.

And one had a bunch of snakes, some of whom he sometimes brought to school for show and tell. (This is the one whose snake was so dumb he encircled the couch and bit down on his own tail; they had to lift the couch and run him under cold water until he was insensate enough that they could pry open its jaws...)

Another friend's sister had fish, and then got piranhas, and then had fewer fish.

So I was around pets; but they weren't mine.

A dorm-mate had a rat, which she liked putting on people's shoulder unsuspectingly. She was...not polite. The rat was, though.

One of my exes had two hermit crabs, but then one clipped the claw off the other and then got neglected by her sister, so that didn't end well.

As an adult, I've lived with cats and a rabbit named Easter Dinner, and lots of plants, and your fish and snails.

Yes, I'm surprised I forgot that one!

I would have to add the missed rabbits, horses, and turtle (not an amphibian - can't breathe water even a little, also not a snake or lizard).

Turtle! I knew I missed something else. :)

I marked cats and dogs but I forgot we had a fish tank when I was little.
