Kids from Skip-a-Long got a treat right outside the big top. They got up close and personal with some of the biggest stars of Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus.
The kids watched as elephants got their weekly pedicure. 
Clown D.J. Weiss said it is an awesome way to learn about how the circus takes care of its elephants.
"We really like to educate and really help promote the wellness of our animals and the care of our animals for the greatest show on earth, but we also like for the people to get the experience up close and personal," said Weiss.
D.J. said they keep their elephants relaxed with a lot of positive reinforcement.
