Theodore Roosevelt takes the cake for the most unusual presidential pets, with more than twenty animals in the White House at any given time. A crowd favorite was Roosevelt’s one-legged rooster, photographed above. This crippled farm animal was joined by countless dogs, cats, and guinea pigs in the White House, while a zebra, hyena, lions, and bears could be found at the Roosevelt’s Long Island summer house.
