This beautiful bird can be found in Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean and Mexico. Did you know there are over 40 species of toucans in the world today? This bird’s exotic appeal is one of the reasons why it costs so much money. Its price ranges between $5,000 to $10,000.

9. Savannah Cat

You can get this beautiful, unique cat for $25,000. I can’t justify spending that amount of money on a cat, but there are definitely those who’d gladly pay this price! Unlike most felines, these cats are not afraid of dogs. Savannah cats are described as being very “dog-like” and are thought of as dogs in cat form. The Savannah cat’s expensive price tag is due to the difficulties that surround breeding it.

8. Lavender Albino Ball Python
