Touchfest at Virginia Tech

Virginia Tech hosted the 3rd annual Touchfest last week, where a variety of exotic animals from Animal Rentals, LLC out of Chicago, IL came down to visit. There was a monkey named Mindy, a porcupine, a Geoffrey’s Cat, a turtle, Scarlet Macaw, Chinchilla and a naked rat that no one wanted to play with, poor guy.¬†Students could come and hang out with these animals and take a little break from the second half of the semester.





Petting the porcupine was definitely a first and came with some strict instructions about where to start and which direction to stoke. Rumor had it there was also a crocodile and snake, but the day was a little too cool for them.
