Larry Battson brings scares to WISH-TV studios

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Larry Battson with Wildlife Educational Services, joined 24-Hour News 8’s studios Monday morning and he brought along some special friends!

Larry brought in a pretty massive turtle and later introduced us to a baby alligator.

As you can see from the videos, our very own Phil Sanchez wasn’t exactly trying his hardest to have a play date with the alligator.

Check out the clips to learn more about the animals!
