Do Tell: Do You Associate Some Pets With Certain Age Groups?

Although I think guinea pigs and goldfish are commonly found in kids' classrooms or bedrooms, I owned a dwarf hamster in my 20s, have a pal in his 30s with a hermit crab, and remember that awesome Ikea-hack-turned-rodent-home? All of those counteract my own opinions. Are there certain animals you associate with younger people and/or have you ever owned a pet that you don't think fits your age range?
