Do you love studying animals? If you do, you probably know that a great way to learn about them is to observe them. You could watch what they eat, where they live, and how they act. 




Right now, it is hard to go see live animals in person. That's where animal cams come in! Animal cam is short for animal cameras, or cameras used to film an animal's day. Lots of zoos and animal sanctuaries have them so that people can check on their favorite animals and see what they are up to.


Do you like lions, tigers, and bears? Pandas? Otters? Sharks? Penguins? Chances are, there is an animal camera out there that will bring a smile to your face.


Here are a few of the big ones to get you started: has livecams showing everything from big cats like lions to tiny kittens waiting to be adopted. 


Monterey Bay Aquarium let's you virtually visit sea creatures and penguins. I recommend the Jelly Cam if you need something calming. They are kind of hypnotic to watch!


San Diego Zoo Kids lets you watch cool animals, like elephants and polar bears.


The Smithsonian National Zoo has a few animal cams you can watch, too! Their cheetah cubs have been pretty popular lately.


Tip: If you want to come back to these websites later, you can easily find them again on the Useful Links tab of the Media Center website.
