Petco Zoo

Yesterday, my boys and I went to Petco to get some flea medicine for our cats. But, as always, we ended up seeing a lot more.

We spent an hour perusing all the animals in the store, which really borders on being a small zoo. Some of the animals included:

  • Chinchillas (one was running around the cage, giving us a glimpse of how fast these rodents can run)
  • Ferrets (they were putting on a wrestling match)
  • Parakeets
  • Mice
  • Rats
  • Guinea Pigs
  • Hamsters
  • Turtles (red-eared sliders)
  • Tortoise
  • Lizards
  • Scorpion (hiding)
  • Tarantula (hiding)
  • Snakes
  • Frogs
  • Fish (beta, koi, and many others)

Cameron, my older boy, kept begging to bring home some of the animals.

As a bonus, they had a greyhound adoption event sponsored by Greyhound Pets of America - Greater Northwest, where we saw seven or eight greyhounds. Greyhounds seem like they're from alien planet, with their long narrow snouts, swept back ears, and aerodynamic muscular bodies. They also seem strangely unemotional (no tail wagging for me), but did get excited when new greyhounds showed up. Here are some pictures of the pack:
