Top 10 Exotic Pets of Rich and Famous Celebrities

9 Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson is perhaps the most well-known celebrity who has exotic pets. In 1992, while in prison, Tyson spent $71,000 to purchase a Kenyan tiger.

Tyson had Kenya for 16 years and told, “I did own a pet Tiger, she was called Kenya and she weighed around 550 lbs. I had a deep affection for her. She slept with me, I stayed with her, and I kept my room. She stayed with my family for sixteen years. However, she grew too old and I had the need to get rid of her because her eyes and her head were getting worse. Oh, and she also ripped off the arm of someone.”
