Look at what I found in our condo! Isn't it cool? A Beetle!

But THIS is WAY better!

A giant horseshoe crab!

The beetle's backThe horseshoe crab's back

The beetle's stomach...The horseshoe crab's stomach...

This is how big the beetle is. It's laying next to my pinkie.

This is how big the horseshoe crab is.....

I'm lying next to it and I'm 5 foot 1 inch. Which one do you think is better?

Mom? Which one can I take home?

Not Another One! YES! Another One!

Hi! This is Boy in a Zoo with your host - ME!!

People who know us might want to sit down right now, because we got another animal!

Her name is Victoria

She is a blue-eyed, brown-eyed Australian Shepherd-Blue Tick Hound Mix.

She also has a super power.

Anyone who truly loves animals in their heart

can see a heart-shaped patch of fur on her head.

Friends and family I know you think we are crazy but could you really leave this sweet baby all alone in a pet store? She was the runt and all of her brothers and sisters were beating up on her.

We had to take her!! Could YOU have turned her down?

Oh, and here is a tip to find out if you pass the test..Are you a true animal lover: The heart on her head appears upside down in the picture.
