GRAHAM, N.C. -- It's hands-on learning at it's best.

Southern Alamance High School students in the animal sciences program are using the critters to get an up close and personal perspective on each animal.

"If you have the animal you can feel the different joints in them. You can feel how their ears feel and the different lengths of them," said senior Carli Patterson. "You know if you can feel in them you can feel like their organs and things like that. So it makes it easier to be able to hold that to get a better life perspective on the animal."
