I am a huge animal lover. One of my favorite parts about writing blogs for the SP Country of the Month is looking at pictures of different animals found in that country. Some of my past favorites are the Siberian Tiger from Russia and the Arctic Fox from Canada.
The vast continent of Africa is particularly special because of the spectacular wildlife that can be found roaming the land. How cool would it be to live in South Africa and share your home with animals such as the Elephant, Giraffe, Lion, Rhinoceros, Leopard, Zebra, Hyena, Antelope, Blue Crane, Cobra, Porcupine and so many more. This list makes me think of all the animals we go to see in a zoo, not animals that I share my home with. While pictures are fun it would be so cool to actually live with the animals. While we can’t do that the internet contains the next best thing. Live webcams. A quick search brings up many cameras meant to share the wildlife and enlighten viewers from around the world. Go online and watch a herd of elephants walk by. Find a cam that supports animals on the endangered species list. Here are a few cameras I have been watching the past few days.
