Animal House: we're bringing the zoo to you

We're live streaming our zoo so you can enjoy #AnimalsAtHome.

We’ve set up a few live stream cameras from Melbourne Zoo and Werribee Open Range Zoo, so you can enjoy the zoo from anywhere.

Can’t see them? That’s because our animals live in areas that are much bigger than what a camera can capture and they have the choice to wander wherever they please. Check back in later to spot them or see what you missed over the last few hours by clicking on the red line underneath each video.

Special guest appearances

The Tree-kangaroos and echidnas joined us live from Healesville Sanctuary last week. While the camera (and animals) have now gone to sleep, you can catch up on what you missed by clicking back on the red line underneath the video.


Live from March 26: echidnas and tree-kangaroos from Healesville Sanctuary

Resident live streams

Empty nest box? The Snow Leopard cubs might be out exploring the big wide world, check out the other live stream to see if they're there.
Can't see the Snow Leopard cubs? See if they're snoozing in their nesting box in the other live stream.

Meet our three Snow Leopard cubs, born on 26 January to first time mum Miska and dad Kang-Ju. The cubs are usually fed sometime between 9am and 10am each morning. Each cub has different markings and we’re looking forward to finding out what sex they are.
