Spinelli, the Pet of the Day
Name: Spinelli
Age: Six years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Rose-haired Tarantula
Home: Lisle, Illinois, USA
   Hi! My name is Spinelli. I am going to tell you what my daily life is like. I wake up when the first period bell rings - you see I live in Mrs. Plackett's 7th grade classroom. She is a teacher on the C.A.R.P.S. team at Kennedy Jr. High School. I am a tarantula that lives in an unfilled fish tank. Kids are always holding me, but I don't mind, I enjoy children. My daily diet consists of yummy, juicy crickets. I think an author stole my name. He goes by "Jerry Spinelli" but there is no relation. Obviously, I am much cuter.

    Spinelli is six years old and was a present from our teacher's mother-in-law. Our pet is great around people, that is why we think Spinelli should be Pet of the Day! Spinelli is our class pet.
