I'll throw my hat in the ring with birds, except maybe hawks which are flown regularly.

I love those guys in the 60s that had a lion in London.  Perhaps not the best flat mate when you are low on food!

One of my daughters had lizards and tarantulas, the worst part of them was the live cockroaches we had to have in the house to feed them

I should say the cockroaches were in a tank not just running round the kitchen

I worked in a bar in Sydney many moons ago, whenever you picked up the coffee machine to clean it about 20 cockroaches crawled out. Yummy!

I have seen similar, when I was in the forces on exercise in Germany, had to go in a building that had a snack bar in it, at night just with torches, the counters were alive with hundreds of them.  Strangely never had a roll and cup of tea there ever again

Rhinoceroses.  Hippos are not a good idea, either.

If you could train your Giraffe to stand still it could live under the loft hatch or in a wide stairwell, then you could feed it on the landing
