Delight your kids (and maybe even yourself) with live-action animal cams from some of the best institutions in the U.S. The Animal Cams from the National Zoo in Washington, DC show you what the elephants, giraffes, gorillas, pandas, and other animals are doing right now. (Sometimes the answer is "staying off camera," so you may need to try a few animals till you find some action.) Likewise, the Web cams from the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California display penguins, sharks, otters, and more. (Note that all the cams may take a few moments to load even after the Web page appears.)
