I've seen Caecilians for sale alongside aquarium fish. Even before doing some additional reading on what they were I found them fascinating, beautiful, and also kind of funny. They would stay at the bottom of a 20 or 30 gallon aquarium nosing around and occasionally swim in a zigzag up to the top for a gulp of air.
And, yeah, their babies are very cute.

Also, they are the only vertebrates to have protrusible eyes (on a tiny little tentacle).
