Witness the African Watering Hole from your computer screen!
When the entire world closed following COVID-19, tuning in to the Maryland Zoo's live cams became a godsend. Lucky for us, they're putting two additional animals on the queue. Here's a hint: they're both from the African Watering Hole exhibit!
Zebras and ostriches are now the latest animals to get their time in the spotlight. Guests can view them from their computers between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. every day, doing what zebras and ostriches do best.

Considering this falls during the zoo's peak hours (they close at 4 p.m.), viewers will likely see a wide range of activities during the day, from eating and napping to strutting their stuff around the exhibit. Some of the star residents include Matilda the ostrich and Addie the zebra.

Plains Zebras are native to Eastern and Southeastern Africa, while ostriches can be found North and South of the equatorial forest belt. According to the zoo, neither species is considered threatened or endangered.
The African Watering Hole features lions, giraffes, zebras, ostriches, and other native species. New rhinos will be joining the exhibit later in the year, as reported by WJZ-TV.
Currently, the zoo offers live feeds of flamingoes, penguins, elephants, and lions. Between those and the new additions, there's plenty of animal content to be had, but we're crossing our fingers the zoo adds more. Perhaps lemurs or otters can be next? In any case, you can check them out here.
What's your favorite animal to see at the zoo? We would love to hear them in the comments!
