Take a virtual visit to some of Houston Zoo's most famous residents. These live cams are running on Central Time (-6 hours behind the UK) with live feeds varying but roughly 1pm - 1am.

The best thing about these webcams? You have a chance to control some of them yourself!

Click the control-button-webcam button in the lower right corner of the viewing window, and when it’s your turn, you’ll see a drop down list of positions to choose from in the upper right (if there is a queue you will see how many people are in front of you)

Tune in to the Houston Zoo Webcams and enjoy a live look at animals that call the Houston Zoo home! See the herd of Asian elephants wander through their enormous habitat. Watch as giraffes nibble lettuce fed to them by guests at the feeding platform; you could join them on your next visit. See the rhinos roll in their mud puddle or the flamingos float next to a waterfall. See the chimpanzees interact with guests at their window or snooze in a hammock.

Learn how you can help our amazing vet and animal care teams while the Zoo is closed through our Emergency Zoo Fund.
