Zoo Cam's Reviewed!

Who doesn't need a bit of calm in this topsy turvy world of late? Free, fuzzy and a whole lot of fun are the Live Cam's from zoos across the world!


Larger zoo's have multiple live cams for a dose of free entertainment. However, the animals may not always cooperate with on demand viewing (we all need our sleep don't we!). So checking back is necessary at times to find the action shots. Here are a few of my favorite zoo cams.


Panda Cam - Smithsonian's National Zoo

Not one, but two cams for the absolutely too darn cute Giant Panda.
There is also a robust archive of panda videos at the National Zoo including the arrival of baby giant panda Bao Bao.



Penguin Cam - Detroit Zoo

If there is one cam that will give you an immediate chuckle is the penguin cam. These guys and gals are too funny!

Butterfly Cam - San Diego Zoo


The butterfly house at my local zoo is a favorite to visit. Entering into the butterfly house is akin to being transported to a fairy garden of gorgeous flowers.  The San Diego Zoo's Hidden Jungle greenhouse has 30 (ish!) varieties  of gorgeous butterflys on the butterfly cam.


Koala Cams - Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary

Lone Pine Sanctuary was established in 1927 as a safe refuge for Australia's koala bears. The sanctuary has its' mission to protect the Koala with its' efforts for a sustainable and biodiverse environment.

Lone Pine has quite a few Koala cams and I admit a huge fondness for the Koala! But the live cams at Lone Pine also have Platypus cams and Dingo cams.


Sloth Cam

For life in the slow and slower lane, check out the sloth cams. Sloths are active at night and no worries about missing the action with this slow mo crew.




Support Your Local Zoo

The vast majority of zoo's are currently closed and all could use financial support while America is staying at home. Now would be an excellent time to fast forward the holiday donation to your local zoo.

  1. With so many of us staying at home right now, these zoo cams are a fun idea. Especially great for homes with kids. A 'virtual' trip to the zoo would be entertaining and also educational for some home-schooling ideas.

  4. Lol, I can get so addicted to Cams - I've been known to head over to Earth Cam to just see what the world is doing. Could be the global situation, buy why am I drawn to that sloth cam?

  5. I am going to have to watch those sloths. They are my speed these days. What a great entertainment option. I have been known to watch various bird cams online (hatching eagles, etc.). Thanks for sharing something we can all enjoy while sheltering at home.

  6. Oh this is funny... I read this review on Monday... and got so distracted with the cams that I forgot to comment! I usually watch Baltimore Aquarium cams. But these penguins are great! Thank you for sharing.
