Meet the pets in Zoology

Junior Tony Morse rests his male Dumbo Rex Rat, Dexter, on his shoulder for comfort during Zoology. Morse bought Dexter from Petland before the school year started as a personal pet. “Since he is my pet and I don’t have him for the only sole purpose of Zoology, I don’t feel comfortable leaving him here overnight,” Morse said. “He gets lonely and misses me, and so do I. I also just love spending time with him, he is such an amazing pet. He always cuddles with me and is so content with me.”
