Go Wild for Live Cams at the Maryland Zoo

Pair of adult Lions in zoo

Opened in 1876, The Maryland Zoo is the third oldest zoo in the country. Located just miles from Jessup, this community favorite is known for its interactive exhibits. The zoo is temporarily closed, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the action. Catch up with your favorite creatures on live cams at the Maryland Zoo. You can view these amazing feeds from our Jessup apartments. 

Penguin Cam

Party with the penguins from home as you view their enclosure from two different angles. The cameras are always on, and as penguins are active and playful, you never know what you might see. Twice a day, at 10:30 AM and 3:30 PM, you can watch as they are fed and given enrichment activities. The zoo has also created informative posts to accompany the camera footage, such as sustainable seafood recipes you can try at home or the naming of their new penguin chicks.   

Lion Cam

Meet Zuri, the lioness, and Hassan, her male mate. This sleepy pair might not be active often, but that just makes it all the more exciting when you catch them on the prowl. Tune in to this stream and you might just get rewarded with a glimpse into their lives. In the meantime, check out the footage of a lion training session and learn how the Maryland Zookeepers keep their lions happy and entertained. 

Swan Cam

This camera footage is extra special as Scuttle and Buttercup are currently nesting. Watch as they protect their eggs and constantly improve upon their nesting area. Take a look at this exhibit daily from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM, and you could have the privilege of welcoming a baby cygnet into the world. So far this year, three eggs have hatched and expecting up to three more. 

Learning about animals through live cams at the Maryland Zoo is a great way to support a local institution.
