When sick kids have to stay in the hospital and aren’t able to go to the zoo, the zoo comes to them!

The San Diego Zoo's kids closed-circuit TV channel is bringing exotic animals right into the patients’ rooms at Cohen Children's Medical Center.

Some kids even get to interact with crazy creatures like a kinkajou, an african crested porcupine, and a cockatoo.
