Hello! I had a red eared slider for 5 years, but sold it to another teacher before I changed jobs. I loved it!!! That was with 2nd grade. Now, I will be teaching K. I want something that is different than the "typical" class pet like a guinea pig or fish. I thought about a hedgehog, but I am afraid of the spines. I would like something low maintenance and, from what I can tell, the best bet would be a beta, rat, or frogs. Any other suggestions???? THanks!
