Herald Spillover: Alligators, hedgehogs and bunnies … in dorm rooms?


Chubbs the gator hangs out on the bottom shelf of Derrick Duquette 12.5's TV stand.

If you don’t already know all about  the exotic pets some students keep in their dorm rooms, then clearly you didn’t read Wednesday’s Herald.

While the article has all the hilarious stories from students who’ve kept alligators, hedgehogs and bunnies in their rooms — as well as warnings from ResLife about the health and safety problems that pets can cause — newspapers have limited space, and we couldn’t fit in all the photos we got.

Fortunately, BlogDH has got you covered. After the jump, we have EVEN MORE PET PHOTOS! And some of them are really cute.

Nicholas Faber '12 and Derrick Duquette '12.5 got Chubbs their sophomore year.

Chubbs has grown since then.

Megan Schmidt '08.5 and Nate Bowling '08 got a hedgehog their sophomore year when they lived in Grad Center.

The hedgehog, Kugel, was certainly memorable. Especially if you were the guy who got your foot bitten while you were peeing.

Joe Goldberg '12 had Sophia for part of the fall of his freshman year.

Sophia enjoyed playing outside.

"Sophia, say hi to BlogDailyHerald!"

As fun as pets may be, they can also cause problems. You may want to just stick with heavy petting on the Main Green.
