7 Animal Cams to Drive You Wild

Want to bring a little wildlife into a horrifyingly unnatural, windowless work environment? Well, your choices are — pretty much any kind of animal you can think of.

Here are a mere smattering of cammed animals to get you started on your virtual safari.

1. Pandas!

Sure, I’m starting with the obvious. This Panda Cam is courtesy of Camzone.

2. Penguins!

3. Parakeets!

Animal Planet offers a Noah’s Ark-ful of animal cams, including this one.

4. Otters!

5. Wolves!

6. Sharks!

Also from Animal Planet.

7. Roaches!

OK, maybe this one requires an explanation. The cockroach isn’t my favorite animal, but Cockroach Cam is easily my favorite animal-cam: Here, these widely demonized creatures crawl around what appears to be a tiny kitchen purpose-built for their creepy pleasure.

And as a completely bizarre bonus, a miniature TV screen on the wall broadcasts “Roach-O-Vision” movies, such as a 1965 soccer newsreel.
