I just found this website called Africam where they have live video feeds of animals in, you guessed it, Africa. It is so neat!

My favorite recorded video they have shows an African fish eagle calling. It is such an impressive sight to see how far back this bird stretches its neck during the call. The African Fish Eagle is actually a relative of the North American bald eagle. For more information, visit the Los Angeles County Zoo's webpage dedicated to this bird.

Another fun recorded video shows a lioness interacting with her cub (photo above).

Is there a better way to spend your time procrastinating than watching animals?
