Bowling Green senior Tiffany Quiles has always been in love with animals. She currently owns 12 pets, most of which are reptiles. Her menagerie is currently confined to her bedroom, but Quiles plans to open a reptile learning center and animal rescue center for both exotic and domestic animals after graduating college.

“Reptiles are so misunderstood,” she said. “They’re just different, you know?”
