1. Two Hamsters
    I inherited these guys my first year from the teacher in the grade below me. I missed two days of school that year and one hamster died each of those days. It's my number one proof there is a God and that he loves me.
  2. A few fish and two water snails
    I forgot about them over Christmas break. I kept the empty tank running for years to give the illusion of something living. And because I was too lazy to get rid of it.
  3. A bearded dragon
    A student begged me to let him keep his bearded dragon in our classroom. I acquiesced but with understanding that it was temporary. I forgot about it (as did the student) over fall break and when I got back the thing had kind of turned black. Luckily he ate a shit-ton of crickets and pulled through.
  4. I think I had a bird for a while but honestly I don't remember what happened to it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
