TAMUCC Petting Zoo to Help Students Relieve Stress

CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi was a zoo on Tuesday, as students got the chance to check out all kinds of exotic animals and reptiles.

There were snakes, chinchillas and even a kangaroo at the University, all as part of a project aimed at helping students relieve stress between classes.

"It's awesome," TAMUCC student Bryan Farris said. "Get your mind off things, play with weird animals."

"It's nice because it kind of gives you a break," TAMUCC freshman Katia Mendizabal said. "If you are a little stressed out, you can come over here and hold a little gecko or guinea pig or something. Everyone has a good day."

The campus activities board held the petting zoo and it was free to students.
