SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTHI) - Students at Sullivan Elementary School are receiving quite the treat.

That treat was Hedgehog Hannah.

It is an educational animal show.

Students received an up-close look at snakes, alligators, and even a chinchilla.

Organizers say the program is like getting a tour of the animal kingdom.

"We just really want the kids to enjoy the experience, very hands-on, very educational and it's just something very neat to be able to explore these animals at a finger's touch," Carrie Baker, a teacher at Sullivan Elementary, said.

The Hedgehog Hannah exhibit comes from Indianapolis.
