Fresh water fish are the most common pet in the US- out ranking longhorns by far.

** There are over 171 million pet fish swimming in homes around the US. **

Naturally, city dwellers, and those of you living in the suburbs, will not have the option to choose a longhorn as a pet- even in Texas!

However, if you are lucky enough to own any portion of agricultural land choosing a Texas Longhorn cattle over a goldfish deserves consideration.
