While we are all stuck at home, there are times you and your family might be feeling a little bored. In normal times, this would mean a fun family outing to the zoo. Unfortunately, we can’t visit our favorite zoos in person, but many zoos across the country are offering online zoo visits. Here are a few highlights.

Cincinnati Zoo

The Cincinnati Zoo is home to the famous Fiona the Hippo. Most days the zoo offers a Home Safari program at 3 p.m. EST on its Facebook Live Feed. You can also head to their YouTube channel and catch up on any animals you may have missed.

Houston Zoo

The Houston Zoo offers a variety of live animal cams where you can watch the animals explore their habitats, enjoy mealtime, and play with each other. Some of the animals available include elephants, gorillas, giraffes, flamingos, and leafcutter ants.

San Diego Zoo

The San Diego Zoo is one of the most famous zoos in the world. You and your kids can virtually visit some of their most popular animals including koalas, pandas, polar bears, and tigers.

Until you are able to visit a zoo with your family, enjoy these virtual tours. When it’s time to get back on the road, make sure your car is up to the task by scheduling a maintenance appointment at El Dorado Chevrolet in McKinney, Texas.
