Monterey Bay Aquarium, which I would like to live in for a week or so straight, has the most glorious live cams of their exhibits.
Would you like to watch their Open Sea Live Cam, which is focused on their huge tank?
You'll see giant bluefin tuna power their way through the water, while hammerhead sharks, pelagic rays and giant green sea turtles swim just inches away.
The stunning one-million-gallon exhibit is home to one of the most diverse communities of open-ocean animals to be found in any aquarium.
They also have sunfish, which are so over-the-top and ridiculously-shaped I'm considering them for my patronus.
Or perhaps you want something a little cuter? How about the Penguin Exhibit?
Our energetic and inquisitive African blackfooted penguins are visitor favorites.
Watch carefully and you might even see them communicating with each other. When penguins flap their wings or bow their heads, they're telling each other how they feel. Throwing their heads back and wings out means "I'm happy." Leaning forward and opening their beaks means "Go away."
Or perhaps you want to DIE FROM CUTENESS with their Otter Exhibit!
There's never a dull moment in our sea otter exhibit!
Our otters love to play with toys, lounge in ice buckets or just snooze. We feed ours four times a day, often putting the food in toys to stimulate the otters' natural behavior of pounding and working to get food out of shells.
Our aquarists also teach the otters behaviors, like holding a target with their paws or walking onto a scale. Training keeps our otters mentally and physically stimulated—it also makes working with the otters safer for us and less stressful for them.
They have more webcams, including their Aviary, Kelp Forest, and the Monterey Bay Cam.
The only flaw is that these aren't 24-hour webcams :(
P.S. They have an exhibit right now called "Tentacles: The Astounding Lives of Octopuses, Squid, and Cuttlefish" and if you California people don't go to see it and take pictures and let me live vicariously through you, I will be very upset.
