Zoo

There might be no better way to give the family a distraction or to fill up some down time than peaking in on some of the most unique creatures on the planet. While zoos and aquariums will be closed to the public for the foreseeable future because of the COVID-19 pandemic, you can still catch a glimpse of pandas, hippos, otters and many others via live streams. Here are a few zoo and aquarium live streams to check out.

San Diego Zoo

One of the oldest zoos in the U.S., the San Diego live streams feature a baboon cam, a penguin cam, a pre-recorded panda cam and others for everyone to enjoy. Viewers can see the animals play around in their habitats or watch archival footage of other animals.
