Our animal experts speak Spanish

(Note: The Animal Store blog is “written” by our spokesfish, Ernie the Giant Gourami.)

So, did you know we speak Spanish here at The Animal Store. And by we, I don’t mean Kenn. As Kenn says, English is his second language, he doesn’t have a first. Luckily, he was smart enough to hire Yussel, who speaks fluent Spanish.

Yussel is our store manager. She loves animals and knows a lot about us. She really likes the birds (don’t ask me why; everyone knows that fish are much cuter than birds), but she knows her way around the fish aisle, too … and the small animals … and the reptiles. She’s not afraid of anything, either. I’ve even seen her pick up the scorpions and tarantulas right in her hand. You won’t catch my fins anywhere near a scorpion.

Be sure to say hola to Yussel the next time you visit. And remember, our animals are all fluent in the only language that really counts — the language of love.

The Spanish version of this post appears directly below this one.
