Re: Pets with Star Trek names...

Iguanas are very difficult to care for... They need specialized diet and special UVB lighting to well. If you feed the wrong food, they may end up dying. Don't ask the pet store people for iguana care information. Look on line for the information. I know a lady, whom I talked to from time to time on the net, who is the auther of a book called "Iguanas for Dummies". She puts up a free web page for people who don't have money. It's called: www.anapsid.org

I originally wanted to name Fry and Bender, but my wife wouldn't let me.
I managed to get my wife to let me name a chinese hamster Fry, after the Futurama character, couldn't get bender past her though. We also had a Roborovski hamster named "Wodka" as in "Chekov saying Vodka"

I had a goldfish named Rimmer after the Red Dwarf character, and also tried to name our cat Jazz, after a Transformer but Mrs Baron said no....we settled on Willow...which could be the dwarf I guess.

But no, no trek pets - though I know someone who once had a Rat called Sela.

My Star Trek names period has begun with my two most recent kittens. Their names are Jean-Luc and Q, naturally.

Not exactly my own pet, but I have temporary custody (long story, not worth explaining) of a fish that I'm told is a mini koi. I have no idea whether his owner named him, so I did:

Re: Pets with Star Trek names...

No, I don't have a pet with a Star Trek name... Though next time I get a new pet I'll be sure to name it something from ST. Probably something DS9 related.

Re: Pets with Star Trek names...

My little sister has a rabbit named Tribble.

I was the one who suggested the name.

Re: Pets with Star Trek names...

I've always had cats. Two of them from years ago were Spock and McCoy. Now I have one named Elmo... I guess that's not a Trek name, eh? LOL!

I have four animals currently. Two dogs and two rats. I would like to get two more rats in the near future and I already decided to name them Ezri and Nerys.

Re: Pets with Star Trek names...

I don't have any Trek named pets. However a few years ago, my family had dogs who were named Spike and Riley..My friends accused me of naming them after Buffy characters...but I really didn't! I named Spike in 1994, before Buffy, and Riley was named by my dad who didn't even watch Buffy. But still, nobody believed me!

Re: Pets with Star Trek names...

I have a year old dachshund named kaplah. I changed the spelling because non-trek people couldn't pronounce it spelled in klingon.
