Nothing cures boredom like an adorable animal video. Zoos and aquariums around the world offer live cameras for entertainment and we can’t get enough of them. Today the San Diego Zoo live camera showed one of their resident Beaver. TBH, that’s the kindness we need right now.
Forget the Bieber fever – we are a team beaver to the end.
PSA: This article contains beaver puns.
The video broadcast live was recorded this morning on March 17th. You can watch over 16 minutes of super cute animal footage from the comfort of your home.
While the zoo is temporarily closed to the general public, some of the staff have aired with Peanut, a North American beaver (aka one of the zoo’s animal ambassadors).
The two coaches Tanya and Bobby took her to the paddock to help her exercise, get some fresh air, and nibble on some treats.
According to animal trainer Bobby, beavers are the second largest rodent in the world after the South American Capybara (well, dam * winks *).
Throughout the video, the coaches tell the story of the beaver in the United States and some fun facts about Peanut. So it’s an educational experience besides being cute.
Did you know that the San Diego Zoo offers other live animal cameras so you can get up close and personal from your home?
If you’re in the mood to sit back on your sofa and watch an endless loop of adorable animals, there is much more to see.
Whether you want to watch a 24-hour live camera on Penguin Cuteness, snorkel with polar bears, or run with koalas, these are options too.
The Aquarium of the Pacific at Long Beach also has live camera features that let you swim (virtually) with sharks, rays, and jellyfish. How cool is that?
