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?

I'm 33 and my husband and I currently have three guinea pigs and a hamster. Rodents are so much easier as pets when you're busy and work a lot. It wouldn't be fair for us to get a dog and not have time to train it properly. Also, during the frequent times I'm unemployed, rodents are less expensive to feed and house.

My husband and I own a guinea pig! I don't think they're just for kids. I guess I think of hamsters as being more for the kiddos, though.
