Though Tracy Morgan insists he is nothing like Tracy Jordan -- the wacked-out alter-ego he plays on NBC's hit series 30 Rock -- they do have one thing in coming: a love of exotic pets.

In a new interview with PEOPLE magazine, the 40-year-old comedian says his personal home is a real-life zoo. "It's like going to the zoo when you come to my house," Morgan said, who voices a guinea pig action hero in Disney's new action comedy G-Force. "I have snakes, three sharks, moray eels, piranhas, five scorpions and a bird spider. All of them are predators. They are dangerous, but it's cool to have strong and powerful pets."

"You will be surprised but I do a lot of studying and I watch National Geographic," he added.
