Educational Videos on Animals: Animal Planet L!VE!




Do you and your family watch Animal Planet?  I used to and haven't given it much thought as an educational resource for homeschooling, but now considering it for the online resource.  Animal Planet now has a website; Animal Planet L!VE

The website has 11 live cameras of everything from baby chicks, calves and whales to penguins, kittens and puppies.

Here are some other fun videos that can be seen on Animal Planet L!VE:


 You can download footage here.

Animal Planet L!VE currently is available across desktop and mobile platforms at APL.TV and on Samsung Smart TVs, and will be coming to Roku and Xbox LIVE in the coming months.

Here are some other L!VE cams:


Ant Cam

A childhood ant farm has nothing on this colony of leaf cutter ants from Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium in New Orleans.

Beluga Cam

In one of several cams from explore.org's Pearls of the Planet collection, the sleek Beluga whales from Vancouver Aquarium are put in the spotlight, entrancing audiences.

Calf Cam

Watch baby calves find their legs and explore a whole new world from the South Mountain Creamery in Middletown, Maryland.

Chick Cam

Spring has sprung for these adorable chicks that, along with the calves, call the South Mountain Creamery home.

Cockroach Cam

While feelings may be mixed on these creatures that have inhabited our planet since the Cretaceous period, viewers will be mesmerized by their activity and surprise setting inspired by the southern home of Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium.
