    A Children’s Hospital Transported Its Tiny Patients To The Zoo Without Making Them Leave Their Beds

    The future is now!

    They got to visit the jaguars, the meerkats...

    And even got a behind the scenes look at the sea lion exhibit!

    It's safe to say that the kids definitely enjoyed the experience.

    "It gave my son a chance to feel like he was a normal kid. He was able to see the zoo [from] a hospital bed, what greater thing than that," six-year-old Jayden's mom said of the experience.
