When you can't get to the zoo, watch a Zoocam

Sheri Reed, editor of Mamazine, has a rainy day zoo tip:

My 3-year old is obsessed with animals and the zoo, so when we can't get out to see either, he's happy to watch the live Zoocams at the San Diego Zoo or the Smithsonian National Zoological Park. San Diego also has great streaming videos of all the animals, including lots of baby animal footage, and some fun animal games too.
