DALLAS, TX (CBSDFW.COM) - The Dallas Zoo has launched a wild new program at Children’s Medical Center.

The Zoo’s serval (African wildcat), tamandua (anteater) and penguin were part of the Simmons Animal Safari.  The animal visit was broadcast to patient rooms via the hospital’s Red Balloon Network.

The Zoo also provided 300 tickets for patient families, a welcome diversion from dealing with illness or injury.
