Carl Minix said someone broke into his house through a bedroom window while he and his wife were out to dinner, and took their exotic pet named Henry but nothing else, WSVN in Miami reported. 

Minix said he spent about $9,000 on Henry, including the time and expense of getting a state permit. "I worked a long time to be able to get him," he said.
But it's about more than money to Minix.

"That’s my child," he said. 

Minix hired investigator Jamie Katz to help in the search.

"Just give him up. There's no questions asked," Katz said. "They’re will be no charges, no anything. We just want Henry back."
