Some people are highly paid while some animals are highly expensive. They cost hundreds, thousands and nearly millions of dollars. They are rare, which means it could take long before you come across them, and if you do, maybe only by good luck. Here is a list of the most expensive pets in the world.
Most Expensive Pets In The World

White Lion Cubs -$138,000
This breed of lions were first spotted in 1938 and they were rare back then. The colour mutation was first seen among the lions of the Timbavati area and is responsible for the white fur and the light eyes of these animals.

Green Monkey – $16,000,000

Unfortunately, a race has never been won by this multi-million dollar animal.
Sir Lancelot Encore – $155,000
