LEVELLAND, TX (KCBD) -

There's a new resident in Levelland and his name is "Barcode."

Barcode is a baby zebra, 39 days old.

His owners, Jason and Debbie Whitley, plan to have him visit hospital patients.

"I'll be able to take him to nursing homes, schools, to hospitals. We hope it will make a difference in somebody's life. It certainly has ours," Debra Whitley said.

And of course, it's a way to teach people about wildlife.

But the Whitleys don't think everyone should go out and get a zebra.

The Whitley's have been working with animals for decades. They studied and researched Barcode's herd for more than a year before getting him.

So in simple terms, don't try this at home.
