Sophomore Korrigan Rusher loves her many unusual pets.

She currently has a frog, a hermit crab, and a dog.

“Birch is a Gray Treefrog,” Rusher said. “Mr. Krabs is just a hermit crab.”

The two are about the same age.

“Birch is about 2 or 3 years old, and Mr. Krabs is 3,” Rusher said.

Currently, her two unusual pets are kept in the same tank.

They are in a vertical tank because Birch is a climber and he prefers upward space more than sideways space,” Rusher said. “Mr. Krabs gets the bottom.”

Birch gets gut-loaded crickets and Mr. Krabs gets peanut butter crab food and meat.”

Both pets eat diets consisting of foods that normal pets wouldn’t eat.

Birch gets gut-loaded crickets and Mr. Krabs gets peanut butter crab food and meat,” Rusher said. “They’re both very pampered in my opinion.”

They both even have their own personalities.

“Birch likes to be handled and is very photogenic,” she said. “Mr. Krabs likes to sit on his small castle that’s in his tank.”

In the past, Rusher has had a large variety of pets.

“I’ve had snakes, lizards, frogs, toads, crabs, fish, cats, dogs, birds, spiders, scorpions, crickets, and turtles,” Rusher said.

In the future, Rusher plans to continue to keep unusual pets.

“I’ve kept them all my life, and I don’t plan to stop,” Rusher said.

Besides her pets, Rusher lives with her mom, her stepfather, and her four brothers.

“My brothers are all rowdy, but I have to put up with them,” she said.

Before living in the Kearsley district, Rusher lived in Texas.

“I used to attend Fort Sam Houston schools in Texas,” she said.

When Rusher isn’t caring for her pets, she draws in her free time.

“I like to draw,” she said. “It lets me express myself.”

Currently, Rusher works at a bank.

“I’m a janitor at a bank,” she said. “Its really hard work, with me being so small.”

I want to be a biologist. Nature fascinates me.”

After high school, Rusher would like to attend college, but she’s not sure where yet.

“I want to be a biologist. Nature fascinates me,” Rusher said. “I love it.”

Rusher also participates in marching band, in which she plays the flute.

“I don’t do anything else because I don’t have much free time,” Rusher said.
