Animal Cameras

Enjoy a live look at animals that call the Kansas City Zoo home! Even when the Zoo is closed, you can keep an eye on your favorite residents.

Orangutan Camera

One of two subspecies of orangutan, Bornean Orangutans are found natively on the island of Borneo. As frugivores, their diet includes over 400 types of fruit in the wild and they are important movers of seeds, passing them through their digestive system. You can find our group of six at Orangutan Canopy.

King, Gentoo, and Macaroni Penguin Camera

Helzberg Penguin Plaza is home to 17 king penguins, eight macaroni penguins, and 45 Gentoo penguins. You can see all of them swimming and strolling around in this cold-weather habitat. The Kansas City Zoo is also home to 19 Humboldt penguins that live in a separate warm-weather habitat.

Humboldt Penguin Camera

The warm-weather-loving Humboldt penguin is native to the desert coast of Chile and Peru. These birds have special heat-dispersing skin patches near their beaks that allow them to live in such a warm environment. You can find our Humboldt penguins in their indoor/outdoor exhibit at Helzberg Penguin Plaza.

Polar Bear Camera

*****************The Polar Bear Cam is currently unavailable.***************** Classified as a marine mammal, the polar bear is as typical of the North Pole as the penguins are of Antarctica. These huge carnivores depend on sea ice to hunt their preferred prey, seals. Climate change has severely affected the survival of polar bears who, without sustained sea ice, cannot effectively hunt their prey.

Giraffe Camera

******************The Giraffe Camera is currently unavailable.****************** The Kansas City Zoo currently has three Masai giraffe in its herd, Mahali, Makali, and Chandy. Chandy is the youngster as she was born in 2019 and is a granddaughter to Mahali. The giraffe cam offers a window into their behind-the-scenes bedrooms during colder months when they can't be in their African Plains habitat. See what they're up to when they're inside!
