You know, travelling around the world and seeing nature in all its natural beauty is pretty difficult and pretty expensive. Fortunately for us lazy, poor people, we have the internet, and with the internet comes certain perks. We can get news for free, we can illegally torrent things to feel like pirates, and we can watch some awesome live feeds of animals in their natural habitats. Today, we’re more focused on that last one, by bringing you the best of the best when it comes to live animal cams. Sure, sometimes nothing much is happening with them, but when they’re on, they’re on! So here are, in no particular order, our 10 favourite live animal cams!
10. Northern Lights Cam
Now this one is 100% the definition of hit or miss. Obviously, you’re not going to see much during the day, but it’s at night when things get crazy. If you’re able to catch even just a little glimpse of the Northern Lights, well then, I think it’s worth it!
9. Djuma Game Reserve Watering Hole
Elephants, giraffes, birds, antelope- what more could you want? A little bit of patience, and a little bit of luck is all you need.
8. Ithica Bird Feeder
This one is for all you birders out there. Put out by the Cornell Lab- so you know it’s good- just patiently wait and watch as all manner of birds appear to eat.
7. Brown Bear Katmai National Park Falls Cam
Just playing highlights when I took a look. This live cam has everything you could ever want. Bears, lots of bears, and fish being eaten by bears.
6. American Eagle Foundation Eagle Cam
Multiple angles and a beautiful eagle, this site is worth checking out.
5. Schnauzer Puppy Cam
Yeah, it’s not in the wild, but hey, who doesn’t want to watch a bunch of puppies? It’s the best type of a pick me up!
4. Hummingbird Feeder Cam
There’s something oddly relaxing about watching this one. Just put it on in the background and wait for hummingbirds- it’s great.
3. Tau Game Lodge African Cam
I wasn’t going to put another African wildlife cam in this list, and then I saw an alligator pop up out of the water. You can’t really ignore something like that….
2. Monterey Bay Aquarium Jellyfish Cam
Yeah, it’s not in the wild again, BUT who doesn’t love watching jellyfish?!? They’re so damn cool!
1. Cape Fear Shark Cam
And finally for you fish people out there. Personally, I haven’t seen any sharks yet, but I have seen barracuda. And every so often I see shadows from far off and hope.
