Most of us have limited exposure to global animal diversity. Sure, we have our beloved pets and, depending where you live, you can encounter everyday wildlife like squirrels, deer, rabbits, chipmunks, birds, reptiles, and even some rarer critters. However, there are so many other animals that we never get exposed to in our daily lives. Discover new, exotic creatures with these captivating live streams from the San Diego Zoo and Monterey Bay Aquarium and reveal the daily life of these extraordinary animals. All you have to do is click on the hyperlinks below!
In this stream, peak into the lives of African elephants, originally born in Kruger National Park in South Africa. The 11 elephants that now reside in San Diego have traveled the globe extensively to find their way to this current home. Elephants are among the most intelligent animals as scientists report they have self-awareness and empathy.
Witness these light, translucence creatures when you watch the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s moon jelly cam. Notice their delicate, graceful movements. While these jellies can sting, it’s usually only mild irritation and scientists don’t consider them dangerous. Can’t get enough of these creatures? Take a look at more jellies here.
These three cams from Monterey Bay include a variety of sea life. In the open sea cam, view larger sea creatures in stunning blue water including stingrays, hammerhead sharks, and sea turtles. The coral reef cam gives you a colorful entrance into reef life including a bustling variety of fish, and the kelp forest cam showcases this famous aquarium’s capturing of local aquatic vegetation and central California coast creatures in action.
Koalas are among the cutest animals around, native to Australia. This live cam from San Diego shows these peaceful creatures as they enjoy life, napping and eating their favorite and primary food, eucalyptus leaves. Their sleepy demeanor makes them all-the-cuter!
Speaking of cute, get another dose with lively sea otters. When you catch them in action, these playful creatures are a delight to observe. There is also a live stream of penguins, an African species that lives in the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Splash Zone Exhibit.
A rare animal to see in the wild, witness the wondrous polar bear in this stream out of San Diego. These animals are native to the Arctic Circle, are expert swimmers, and are the most carnivorous of all bears. While not technically endangered, these bears are considered vulnerable and their populations threatened, so it’s a treat to witness them.
With this ape cam, become fascinated with the behavior of the famous creatures as they play, care for their young, and socialize. Apes are another example of highly intelligent animals.
We hope you’ve enjoyed this “virtual traveling” with our #OneWeekofWildlife. Among others, Holiday Vacations has tours that go to Australia, Africa, the Atlantic & Pacific coasts, Hawaii, Alaska, and many National Parks that give guests high probabilities of witnessing awesome wildlife in person. However, for now, as we continue to hunker down and #RoamFromHome, get acquainted with even more remarkable creatures with the 3D animal content from Google View. There are endless resources you can explore right now as you spark your imagination for future travel.
