That’s according to a survey of 1,200 married womanizers, all of whom had pets.
It turned out that 20% of them owned a reptile – and were one.
But unfaithful husbands who had a pet bird like a parrot or budgie were last in the top 10 pecking order, at just 4% — and least likely to flee for an affair.
Rat-owning love rats were right in the middle at 16%. And women should think twice before marrying men who love cats. They were second in the league table with 19%.
Lizard and tropical fish lovers might be up for an affair in third and fourth place in the Lothario League. Women might also want to be wary of dog lovers at number 7. Hamster and rabbit owners also have to be careful.
But luckily if he has a turtle, he’s probably slow to cheat.
A spokesman for survey sponsor IllicitEncounters.com said, “Seems male reptile owners really are the largest snakes.”
Jessica Leoni, sex and relationship expert at IllicitEncounters.com, said: “When you’re dating a man with a pet snake, expect a cold-blooded affair.
“If you’re looking for a non-cheating man, bird owners are the least affair-loving pet dads.”
The league of love cheat pets — with some men having more than one pet — in the study by married dating site Illicit Encounters, found the following;
1. Snake – 20 percent
2nd cat – 19 percent
3. Lizard – 18 percent
4. Tropical fish – 17 percent
5th rat – 16 percent
6. Hamster – 15 percent
