Sean Alfred and Joey Johnson, of Waverly, are like zookeepers in their own home, which is also home to a variety of unusual pets—from a saltwater fish tank full of corals and other exotic-looking underwater creatures, to a skunk.
But don’t worry, the skunk doesn’t smell or spray like a wild skunk, because his scent glands were removed when he was a baby.
Take a look at these pets (see photos) and see if they are anything like the ones you or your friends have at home.
Meet Sean Alfred, pet owner:
What’s your favorite animal? “Well, I think if I had to pick a favorite animal it would be a skunk. They are very friendly and love to see their owners.”
If you could turn into an animal for a day, what kind would you be? “I would want to be a bird…It would be amazing to see the world from a completely different point of view.”
What do you like most about your “collection” of pets? “It is very diverse. There are little things about each that make them unique and interesting to watch.”
