Megan Fox has a "private animal kingdom."
The 'Transformers' actress has turned her Hollywood home into a small scale zoo since moving out of the house she shared with ex-fiance Austin Green in February.
Megan, 22, reportedly keeps five dogs, two cats, two birds a squirrel, and has recently also brought home a pot bellied pig named Piggy Smalls.
She said: "I've just moved to a new place with a huge garden, so all my pets have plenty of room. The garden has become my private animal kingdom and I love it.
"I can't pass a rescue shelter without hawking a new critter home."
A friend of the star revealed she has always been keen on animals, and as a youngster had a habit of playing with snakes in her hometown of Rockwood, Tennessee.
The source said: "Everyone was scared of rattlesnakes expect Megan. She used to give her parents a real headache by trying to play with the rattlers.
"Now she's into cuddly creatures. I think she's lost without something to cuddle up to at night, because she can't make up her mind which man to romance."
Megan stars as Mikaela Banes in 'Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen' alongside Shia LaBeouf and Rainn Wilson, which is released in June.
