LAST WEEK WE ASKED YOU WHAT UNUSUAL PETS YOU OR YOUR FRIENDS HAVE. . LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT YOU HAD TO SAY BY PEEKING IN OUR INBOX!

LANE FROM WAYNESFIELD GOSHEN SCHOOL WROTE:
“I DON'T EXACTLY HAVE A WEIRD PET BUT MY NANA DID. SHE USED TO HAVE ALLIGATOR IN HER BATH TUB WHEN SHE LIVED IN FLORIDA, BUT HER NEIGHBOR FOUND OUT AND TOLD ON HER AND SHE HAD TO GET RID OF IT.”

YIKES!

DALEN FROM BUCKEYE INTERMEDIATE HAS A COOL ONE. HE WROTE:
“ I KNOW A PERSON WHO OWNS A SQUID. ITS NAME IS LEMROD. ITS MAIN COLORS ARE GRAY, GREEN AND BLUE MIXED TOGETHER. IT IS FUN TO WATCH AND TO LOOK AT IT CHANGE COLORS.”

HAYLEIGH AT CRISSEY ELEMENTARY WROTE ABOUT SOMEONE SLOBBERY:

“AN UNUSUAL PET IN MY FAMILY IS MILO. HE IS MY GRANDPARENTS DOG. I THINK HE IS UNUSUAL BECAUSE HE NEVER STOPS DROOLING. HE EVEN DROOLS IN HIS SLEEP.”

EVE AND BRYNLEY FROM JORDAK ELEMENTRY WROTE TO US:

“THE PET THAT WE ARE WRITING ABOUT IS EVE'S UNUSUAL PET. IT IS A BRIGHT PINK FISH THAT GLOWS IN THE DARK! SHE GLOWS IN THE DARK BECAUSE OF HER LAMP…HER NAME IS PINKIE PIE. SHE IS 2 INCHES LONG AND VERY THIN SHE IS ABOUT THE SIZE OF A SMALL A PAPER CLIP. SHE IS UNIQUE AND EATS THESE VERY LITTLE PAPER LIKE BITS OF FOOD. SOMETIMES SHE GOES TO THE TOP OF THE TANK AND YOU PET HER SCALES. SHE LIKES TO SWIM AS FAST AS SHE CAN IN THE TANK ZOOMING FROM CORNER TO CORNER AND UP AND DOWN.”

FINALLY, MADDY FROM OLMSTED FALLS INTERMEDIATE WROTE:
“THE MOST EXOTIC ANIMALS IN MY LIFE ARE TWO CHINCHILLAS NAMED MR. FLUFFS AND BUSTER. IN CASE YOU DON'T KNOW A CHINCHILLA IS A MEXICAN RAT BASICALLY. BUSTER AND MR. FLUFFS COULD NOT BATHE IN WATER LIKE MOST ANIMALS BECAUSE THEY CAN DIE FROM THE WATER SINCE THEY ARE REALLY FLUFFY. SO THEY BATHE IN DUST. MR. FLUFFS AND BUSTER ARE THE EXOTIC ANIMALS IN MY LIFE.”

THANKS DALEN, HAYLEIGH, EVE AND BRYNLEY AND MADDY. THOSE ARE SO NUTS PETS. LAST WEEK WE ALSO ASKED YOU TO VOTE IN OUR POLL WHETHER YOU THINK THAT PEOPLE SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO KEEP WILD ANIMALS AS PETS. 72 PERCENT OF YOU SAID “YES THEY CAN MAKE NICE PETS.”
