Among the follies of the rich, extravagant pets are in pole position. Take for example the case of billionaire Mukesh Ambani who built a 27-story skyscraper to house his family in Mumbai, with an entire floor dedicated to his pets. Famous basketball player Michael Jordan, for his part, spent a whopping $80,000 on an extravagant habitat for his lizards. But these whims are not limited to pets. Some super-rich go so far as to own their own private zoos.

Luxury toys: from ultra-fancy cars to private submarines

Having a fleet of luxury cars seems to be the norm for the super-rich. Car collector Hassanal Bolkiah, Sultan of Brunei, has a car collection estimated at $5 billion, including exclusive cars like the Rolls-Royce Phantom Serenity.

And when a car isn’t enough, it’s time to upgrade to underwater vehicles. Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen spent a staggering $12 million on his own private submarine.

Journeys out of this world

Property mogul Clive Palmer made headlines in 2012 when he announced plans to build a replica of the Titanic, dubbed Titanic II.

The project, which cost several hundred million dollars, was planned to sail in 2016 but was delayed. Additionally, with the advent of private space travel, billionaires like Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos are considering vacationing beyond Earth’s atmosphere.

The quest for the fountain of youth has always been a recurring theme throughout human history, and it seems that the super-rich are willing to spend a fortune to stay young and beautiful.

From expensive anti-aging treatments to exorbitant cosmetic surgeries, the wealthy will do anything to delay the inevitable.

While it is fascinating to delve into the fantasy world of the whims of the super-rich, it is also important to remember the immense wealth disparity that exists around the world.

While some spend billions on pets, cars or space travel, millions struggle to meet their basic needs.
